My Travel Resolution.
discover hidden myths, taste diverse food and sleep below a sky full of shooting stars and galaxies every night
We took the opportunity to make a road trip to Texas and visit some places in the state that I wanted to see. The incredible Dallas CityPASS helped us explore Dallas, one of the most fun and popular places to visit in the United States. Located in Texas, this remarkable city is definitely worth every penny you spend to explore it while traveling America.

In the Dallas area we mainly shopped and dined at certain restaurants that we craved, such as Old House BBQ, an excellent place to eat texan barbecue-style smoked meats. But the trip need not be an expensive one especially if you are traveling on a budget. The Dallas CityPASS comes into play here. It can help you travelling cheaply to some of the most fun Dallas attractions.

So what exactly is the Dallas CityPASS? It is a booklet but in no way an ordinary one. The Dallas or Fort Worth City pass allows you discounted access to at least five of the topmost attractions in the city. This allows you to save a considerable amount of money when touring Dallas, one of the top US cities to explore.

A Dallas CityPASS aquarium visit may be possible as well. You can check the Dallas CityPASS reviews online and see how amazing this is! Keep reading if you wish to know how the pass works and the places it grants you discounted access to.

Road Trip to Austin


On the nest day we undertook, early in the morning, the trip to the south, towards Austin. We grab US Highway 75 which runs from the Canadian border, in the north to Dallas, where it ends. In Dallas you have to take interstate 35E, which farther south meets 35W on a single interstate 35.

A few kilometers from this union you reach the town of West. Here we made a stop to buy something to eat in a hostel called Czech Stop or Little Czech Bakery (they are two identical businesses side by side). Here you can buy the famous Czech kolaches and other delicious things. Finally, we arrived in Austin, the capital of Texas.

There we went first to visit the Capitol. In Austin I also met my instagram friend, who gave us a very good tour of the University of Texas area. Of course, we also visited a bar with live music, how could it be otherwise in Austin. At dinner time, we went with Fernando to a place with an excellent view of the sunset over a lake: The Oasis. Finally, at night, we took a walk through the center.

Road Trip to San Antonio


The next day we left for San Antonio. On the way we stopped to do some shopping in some very large outlets that are on the route. This is the outlets of San Marcos, which are very visited by Mexicans who cross by car to do their shopping, given the proximity to this place. There are other similar outlets in the area.

Upon arriving in San Antonio, we settled in the hotel and the first thing we went to do was to visit the famous missions. These missions are similar to those found in the ruins of San Ignacio, in Argentina, only they are much better preserved.

San Antonio is a very beautiful city and has things that make it seem more Latin American than American. For example, missions resemble many of the churches seen in Mexico or its central plaza with the cathedral opposite. Here we also visit two very important attractions such as the river walk, which is a beautiful walk along the river that crosses a large area of ​​the city and El Alamo, an old church where the Republic of Texas was born.

In San Antonio we also stayed only one night, although we stayed until noon. Then we went back to Dallas, down the same road, though circling the city of Austin on a highway. We also stopped at other outlets in Roundrock.

Arriving in Dallas at night was really a challenge, because of the dream we had. As our flight left at 7 AM, we decided to sleep in the Rent a Car parking lot of the airport before returning the car. After a restorative siesta we were ready to board our flight to Mexico City, where we would spend a couple of days more.

With this post I hope I have inspired you a little to know other unpopular places in the United States. Texas may seem boring, but it has many interesting things to see and do. If you go shopping, you will find the same as everywhere, without crowds and, also, with the possibility of tax return.

  5. My cousin stay in Texas and I hope to visit him one day and you post works as a great guide for me to see Dallas. I remembered the first time I learn about Dallas was from an old drama series back in the 80's. My dad watched it everytime when it aired in the midnight in Malaysia. I was still a kid so I don't really enjoy watching it but my dad love it so much.
