Texas Road Trip Travel Diary

I was lucky enough to travel through three remarkable cities in Texas – Austin, San Marcos, and San Antonio. My boyfriend and I had extravagant plans of a tropical vacation that did not fall through as well as we wanted it to, so we decided to make the best out of the time we took off for our vacation. After a day or so of planning, we came up with this! Our trip was packed with a lot of food and tourist activities, and we both needed this road trip after a stressful few months. Super grateful for the time we spent together! It was cool playing tourist in cities I could easily visit on the weekend.

Our trip started with a morning drive to Austin and our first snack – acai bows at Blenders & Bowls. This little smoothie and acai bowl eatery was attached to a yoga studio. I definitely felt good vibes there! We then spent some time shopping and touring South Congress by foot.

Our first tourist stop was the Texas State Capital building. I had never visited Austin before this trip, so this landmark was a must. It definitely reminded me of the Washington D.C. trip Kekoa and I took in 2016.

The main attraction and probably the best part of the trip was the Graffiti Wall! We had a twenty-seven-minute walk to get to this place. It was not funny at all in the moment but now that I think about it, it was pretty funny that we walked that far through neighborhoods to get to a place with free parking. Kekoa, thankfully, got us a ride back to our car so we did not have to walk back that night. This graffiti park allows its visitors to vandalize the walls! I have never had the dying urge to vandalize anything, but this was a cool activity for the both of us! The view was amazing and we, of course, decorate the walls with our names to mark out love (how cheesy, huh). We ended the day with In-n-Out Burger & Pho and boba later in the night.

The next day we drove to San Marcos after a flat tire and a tire change. I sadly did not take any great pictures that day but I promise it was for a good reason. Kekoa and I spent our day at Schlitterbahn New Braunfels! The water is not good for the camera, so we did not take many pictures or videos.

The waterpark wore us out, so we ended up sleeping early watching Disney Dream Weddings on ABC. Great night, nonetheless! We woke up the next morning well-rested for more driving and shopping. The both of us hobbled downstairs the next morning to Texas shaped waffles and breakfast foods.

That night, we checked into our AirBnb in San Antonio and sped to the riverwalk for dinner. We decided to eat at a Mexican restaurant called Rita’s On the River where we had fajitas, hatch chicken enchiladas, and a “Texas Sized” Mango Margarita. I swear, the thing was bigger than my face!

We finished our trip with another full day in San Antonio. Our activities included: an audio tour of The Alamo, Ripley’s Believe it or Not Oddatorium, its Wax Factory, and its Mirror Maze!

Overall, this trip gave the both of us time to focus on ourselves and our relationship. Life was very stressful for us before we took this trip, so this road trip was a great opportunity for us to stop and breathe. We had some great food and some fun experiences! I cannot wait for the next one!

With love,

      You should! What’s really cool about Texas is that you can drive a few hours in any direction and you’ll experience different weather, different terrain, and an overall different feel! Some parts of Texas have deserts, some have swamps, and some snow all the time. It’s crazy! xx

      I loved it! It did require a lot of driving though, so I would probably reserve more than one day in each place if I could do it over. Thanks for the comment love xx

      Thanks girl! The cities I visited are the best cities in Texas in my opinion. Definitely take a trip over here and go to some of the music festivals in Austin. It will make your stay that much better!
