Overnight(1): Dallas

Day 02 - Dallas - Austin (207 miles)
Today head out for the capital city of Texas, home to the handsome State Capitol Building and the Texas State History Museum. Austin is a lively city that bills itself as the “Live Music Capital of the World”. Enjoy an evening on Sixth Street or the Warehouse District.

Discover Houston’s past in Heritage Park amid the skyscrapers of downtown Houston. Visit the nearby Johnson Space Center for a fascinating history of America’s love affair with outer space.

Day 4 - Houston - Corpus Christi (213 miles)
Take a short drive to the island community of Galveston, filled with Victorian architectural reminders of its reign as Texas’ leading port. Galveston dominated commerce along the Gulf until its growth was halted by a hurricane. Then head for Corpus Christi, a charming seaport, known as Texas’s playground.
Overnight(1): Corpus Christi

Day 5 - Corpus Christi - San Antonio (149 miles)
See the open range and farmland of early German settlers on the way to San Antonio. San Antonio’s unique blend of cultures makes it one of the most charming cities in the U.S. Your hotel for the next two nights is in the heart of San Antonio within easy reach of the major sites.
Overnights(2): San Antonio

Day 6 - San Antonio
Stroll along the Riverwalk or visit El Mercado of the Alamo City. The Spanish Governor’s Palace or one of the many Spanish missions will take you into the historical heritage of this charming city. But most of all, remember the Alamo and visit the site of the courageous battle between a handful of Texans and Santa Ana’s vast army, which was instrumental in creating the Republic of Texas.

Day 7 - San Antonio - Fort Stockton/Pecos (330 miles)
The rolling hill country was the site of early settlements in mid-Texas. The farmers had to battle infertile earth and marauding Comanches to survive here. The code of the West rules here in spirit as you venture north through Pecos County where giants and legends, such as Pecos Bill, are made. Look for deer, javelinas, jackrabbits, and coyote as you journey across this seemingly uninhabitable terrain.
Overnight(1): Fort Stockton.

Day 8 - Fort Stockton/Pecos - El Paso (240 miles)
The city of El Paso is located on the westernmost tip of the state of Texas and is on the U.S./ Mexico border. Its proximity to Mexico helps promote the best the two worlds have to offer, and El Pasoans have long enjoyed the benefits of being situated between three states and two nations. El Paso’s climate - typical of the desert
southwest- the fact that it is located at the base of the Franklin Mountains, and its mix of cultures and traditions makes the Sun City a unique and interesting place to visit.
Overnights(1): El Paso

Day 9 - El Paso - Albuquerque (269 miles)
Leave El Paso and cross into New Mexico. Between the mountains and the mesas runs a river, and astride it stands a city that embodies the diversity of cultures and breadth of ideals that are uniquely American. It is Albuquerque.
Overnights(2): Albuquerque

Day 10 - Albuquerque
Albuquerque is a city full of exciting attractions and events, from Historic Old Town, where theVilla of Albuquerque was founded in 1706, to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the most popular ballooning event in the world.

Day 11 - Albuquerque - Santa Fe - Amarillo (341 miles)
Unique to this area are the Pinyon pines, which produce an edible nut considered a gourmet delicacy in the west. Continue eastward to the panhandle of Texas and hopefully you’ll get a glimpse of the Texas blue sky or a towering thundercloud, both prevalent features of this flat plain. Amarillo was once a railhead town for cattle shipments to the north. The cattle industry remains an important element of the city’s economy. Amarillo is well known for its Cadillac graveyard.
