Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: London – Dallas

Fly into Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, pick up your hire car and drive into the city. Spend your first evening in the Lone Star State enjoying the exciting and varied nightlife of Dallas or resting for your journey ahead. Stay 1 night at the Best Western Plus Dallas Hotel & Conference Center (or similar).

Day 2: Dallas – Austin (approx. 207 miles)

Head south today along Route 35, in the direction of state capital Austin. This modern, laid back city boasts a State Capitol Building larger than the one in Washington and a billing as the ‘Live Music Capital of the World’. Learn more about the origins of the state at the Texas State History Museum and then perhaps enjoy an evening on Sixth Street or the Warehouse District, sampling some of the music venues for which Austin is famous. Stay 1 night at the Red Roof Plus+ Austin South (or similar).

Day 3: Austin – Houston (approx. 201 miles)

Your journey today takes you through rural Texas to Houston. Here you can learn more about America’s love affair with outer space on a tour of the Johnson Space Center. Also well worth a visit is the Sam Houston Park, an oasis of green in amongst the skyscrapers of Houston’s downtown area. Within the park are a number of restored historic homes including a pre-Texas revolution cabin and the Kellum-Noble House, the city’s oldest brick dwelling. Stay 1 night at the Comfort Suites - Near the Galleria(or similar).

Day 4: Houston – Corpus Christi (approx. 213 miles)

Just a short drive from Houston, the island community of Galveston is home to six historic districts tracing the city’s history from its Victorian heyday as Texas's leading port. Galveston’s commercial dominance along the Gulf was abruptly halted by a devastating hurricane in 1900. From here, continue to Corpus Christi, the charming seaport known as Texas’s playground. Stay 1 night at the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel(or similar).

Day 5: Corpus Christi - San Antonio (approx. 149 miles)

You’ll pass through the open range and farmland of early German settlers on your way to San Antonio today. San Antonio’s unique mix of cultures makes it one of the most appealing cities in the USA. Your hotel is located in the heart of the city, close to all famous attractions. Stay 2 nights at the El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel(or similar).

Day 6: San Antonio

Perhaps visit the buzzing market of El Mercado today or take a stroll along the famous Riverwalk. The Spanish Governor’s Palace or one of the city’s many Spanish missions will give you an insight into the heritage of San Antonio. But don’t forget to pay a visit to the Alamo, where a handful of Texans fought a courageous battle against the vast army of Santa Ana. This battle was instrumental in creating the Republic of Texas.

Day 7: San Antonio – Fort Stockton/Pecos (approx. 330 miles)

The rolling hill country you pass through today was where some of the first farmers settled in mid-Texas. They had to contend with infertile earth and raiding Comanches in their battle to survive. Venture north through Pecos County where the code of the West rules and where cowboy legends like Pecos Bill were made. Stay 1 night at the Comfort Suites Fort Stockton (or similar).

Day 8: Fort Stockton/Pecos – El Paso (approx. 240 miles)

El Paso is located on the westernmost tip of Texas state, with the Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez just across the Rio Bravo. This proximity gives El Paso the best of both worlds as well as the benefit of being situated between three states. Add to this the city’s geographical location at the base of the Franklin Mountains, its desert climate and its mix of cultural traditions and you have the makings of a fascinating city destination. Stay 1 night at the Quality Inn Airport East (or similar).

Day 9: El Paso – Albuquerque (approx. 269 miles)

Today you’ll leave Texas and cross the state line into New Mexico. Albuquerque is located on either bank of the Rio Grande, surrounded by the peaks and mesas of the Sandia Mountains. Stay 2 nights at the Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn (or similar).

Day 10: Albuquerque

Spend a day exploring this fascinating city with its exciting attractions and great calendar of events, including the famous Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the most popular ballooning event in the world. Other highlights include the Historic Old Town, where the villa of Albuquerque was founded in 1706 and the Sandia Peak Tramway, the world's third-longest passenger aerial tramway.

Day 11: Albuquerque – Santa Fe – Amarillo (approx. 341 miles)

Your route today takes you back into Texas, but before you cross the border, make a stop in the New Mexico state capital Santa Fe. This stunning city is a well-known centre for the arts and has been designated a UNESCO Creative City. Look out for striking Pueblo Revival architecture and fantastic art galleries here before continuing your journey to the Texan city of Amarillo. Stay 1 night at the Quality Inn Amarillo (or similar).

Day 12: Amarillo - Dallas (approx. 370 miles)

Drive eastwards to the Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest canyon in the United States. Artist Georgio O’Keefe described the canyon as “a burning, seething cauldron, filled with dramatic light and colour”. Continue to Dallas where you’ll have time to explore before your departure tomorrow. Stay 1 night at the Best Western Plus Dallas Hotel(or similar).

Day 13: Dallas - London

There might be time to grab some last minute Texan souvenirs today before you return your hire car to the airport and catch a flight back to London.
