Austin, San Antonio Winter break Trip 2013

Jump to last reply

Its about that time again when I look out a gazillion options for our Winter break trip. Our list of conditions hasn't gotten rather long these days and anywhere arctic cold is totally out (please realize arctic to a Miami family is really just cold to normal people.) And since my points accounts are in the process of recharging - we have to pay for 4 plane tickets.

After thinking for a while we came up with Austin, Tx and the surroundings. DH and kids have never been to Texas and Ive never been to Austin, its not too cold, and it has a great food scene. So I'm thinking of of 8-10 days. I know that's too long for just Austin, we can also hit San Antonio (Alamo) and ???? Houston?? My 14 year old is a science nut, is it worth the drive for NASA? Little guy is 11 - loves any sport and beef!!! We are all National Park junkies if there is anything in driving distance.

Our last winter trips include, Arizona, So Cal, No Cal, Argentina, Italy, and NOLA(kids stayed home for this one.)

Any thoughts??
