Fix'in to visit Texas: town and country, with young kids

Jump to last reply

Dear Fodorites,

We're a family with two young kids (aged 5 and 2) who intend to visit Texas in late April/early May. We want to experience a slice of the state, both cities and countryside, get a taste of texas history and meet some texans.

We have time for 8 nights on the road (we'll hire a car) and were thinking of the following itinerary:

1. Fly to Dallas Fort Worth
2. Fredericksburg
3. Austin
4. Wimberley
5. Greune/New Braunfels
6. San Antonio - Fly Home

We'd love to stay on a ranch at some point, enjoy (short) hikes, authentic local restaurants, child friendly music venues, cycling (if we can hire), strolling through lively down-town areas on warm evenings etc.

We'd be really grateful for any comments on the itinerary (especially if we have chosen the right places and how long to stay in each) and any ideas of specific places, parks, historic monuments, friendly churches, restaurants etc to visit - especially if they're off the beaten track or hidden. We always most enjoy the places the local go !

Thanks so much in advance.

HaSo
