The Best Road Trips is a weekly summer series highlighting our favorite getaways from major cities all over the United States.
Houston has just about everything Texans could want right at their fingertips. The Lonestar State's biggest city also has some of the biggest attractions including the famed Museum and Theater districts as well as NASA's Johnson Space Center (as in, "Houston, we have a problem").
But one of Space City's greatest assets is its close proximity to some of the other most unique and cultured cities. So saddle up for a true taste of Texas goodness, from beaches and rock 'n roll to water parks to oil rigs. Let's hit the road.
