When we first started exploring Texas by way of epic roadtrips, we had tight budgets to work with. But after quickly realizing how easy it was to get a whole lotta bang for your buck in Texas, it became a passion of ours to find affordable adventures that were a little off the beaten path. And that’s what you’re going to find here in this blog. Mixed in WITH a little Texas history and a ton of Texas pride, prepare to be inspired to get out and explore the places that make Texans proud to be Texan.

Austin is known as the Live Music Capital of the World. But it’s also come to be known as the least affordable city in Texas. Thankfully, I found a way to take in some of that live music magic and squeeze in some exploring time for really cheap!

Most people know of popular Texas spots like South Padre Island, Galveston and Port Aransas, which I can attest are all wonderful destinations. But there’s so many more great places to visit along the Texas coast and we were ready to check out some new ones that are a little more off the beaten path.

I’ve driven past Georgetown my whole life, but never really taking the time to explore here. Last weekend we got the chance to check out this vibrant city and we absolutely fell in love! They’ve got a little bit of something for everyone in Georgetown. We found it to be a perfect destination for affordable family fun. If you’re trying to plan one last trip before the fall, let me tell you why you should consider Georgetown.

Our two girls are some of the most swimming hole loving kiddos you’re ever going to meet. If there is water, they want to get in it. Good thing we live in Texas where there is no shortage of amazing swimming holes to explore. One of the most iconic of all the swimming holes in Texas is Jacob’s Well in Wimberle

Where were you right before the covid craziness began? For us, we were in Burnet on a spring break camping trip to Inks Lake State Park. We were hiking all the hikes, and roasting all the s’mores, and enjoying all the rugged Hill Country beauty that area has to offer totally unaware how much life would change the next week.
