Welcome to Day Trippin' Texas

Texas covers 267,339 square miles, or 7.4% of the nation’s total area. That means that we have a LOT of places to see. We have beaches and deserts, mountains and plains, historic forts and really old churches, and lots of whimsical roadside attractions.

So if you're looking for somewhere to go, something to do or some place new to see, we can help you find it.
