These fun and quirky Texas road side attractions are worth the stop on your next road trip!
It’s the year of road trips! The world is a bit crazy right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun and create amazing memories with the family.
I don’t know about you, but my family LOVES to travel. But spending hours on end in the car can be tiresome and boring. So before every road trip, no matter the length, I always research fun places and attractions for us to stop. It’s the perfect excuse to get out of the car and stretch our legs.
