Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Houston – Galveston Island (approx. 80 miles)

Collect your motorhome from the Cruise America depot and head for the Gulf of Mexico and your first night’s stop at Galveston Beach. Why not pay a visit to Moody Gardens, an aquarium, zoo, science museum and water park all rolled into one?! Recommended stay – Jamaica Beach RV Resort, just across the street from the beach, with an unobstructed view of Galveston Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.





Day 2-3: Galveston Island – Corpus Christi - Port Aransas (approx. 205 miles)

There are lots of enticing places to tempt you off the road on your way down to Mustang Island, just north of Padre Island. Once you arrive, spend a couple of nights here so that you have plenty of time to relax and explore Corpus Christi. Try some beachcombing, fishing or swimming at one of the stunning beaches and don’t miss a taste of the local shrimp for which this area is famous. Recommended stay – On the Beach RV Park, a small and friendly RV park in Port Aransas, just a few steps from the ocean.



Day 4-5: Port Aransas – San Antonio (approx. 185 miles)

Head north, away from the coast, to San Antonio, the setting for the famous Battle of the Alamo where you will discover the lingering cornerstones of American history. Take in the beauty of the River Walk on a cruise or walk along the river, stopping to look at the shops or try one of the many cafés and restaurants. Thrill seekers will want to make time for a rollercoaster ride at Six Flags, Texas theme park. Recommended stay – San Antonio KOA, located on a creek amid 40 acres of pecan trees and just 10 minutes from downtown.



Day 6: San Antonio - Abilene (approx. 255 miles)

Your journey continues north to Abilene. Highlights here include the 16 acre Abilene Zoo, a huge park system of 29 parks and the fascinating Buffalo Gap Historic Village.

Day 8: Fort Worth - Texarkana (approx. 235 miles)

Today’s leg of your journey takes you through Dallas.

Your destination for today is Texarkana which straddles the Texas/ Arkansas border and boasts Scott Joplin as a former citizen. Recommended stay: KOA Texarkana, featuring an RV art gallery, a Wildscape Walking Trail and a Golf Ranch.



Day 9: Texarkana - Natchez (approx. 285 miles)

Pass through four states today on your way to Natchez! Start by crossing from Texas into Arkansas and then pass into Louisiana before finishing in Mississippi’s oldest town.

Recommended stay – French Quarter RV Resort, within easy walking distance of New Orleans’ historic centre.



Day 12: New Orleans – Baton Rouge (approx. 85 miles)

Today, make your way to the state capital of Louisiana, Baton Rouge, known affectionately as the Red Stick. Along the way, make sure you allow time to stop along the Great River Road so that you can visit one of the majestic antebellum plantation homes. Once in Baton Rouge, don’t miss a visit to the Old State Capital Museum to learn more about the history of the area. Recommended stay – KOA Baton Rouge, a shaded spot close to the Mississippi River.



Day 13: Baton Rouge – Lake Charles – Beaumont (approx. 205 miles)

On your penultimate day, travel back into Texas with a stop at Lake Charles or a drive along the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road before you cross the state border.
