If you asked anyone in Texas, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who’d tell you that there’s ever a bad time for Texas getaways to be on your travel plans. After all, exploring the Lone Star State is part of what Texas is all about. Whether you think about the history of how the state was first established to the current tall-tales about how much highway traveling you can do & still be within its borders, Texas getaways are something special.
You may also find that these same folks will tell you that hitting the road in Texas to take in the New Year is also something pretty special. The thing to keep in mind is that when you take in the new year, do you mean celebrating the changing over of the calendar or do you actually mean traveling during a new calendar year?

With a state as diverse as Texas, and with as much road to cover in such a geographically massive state, trying to narrow down some getaway options is pretty tough. Still, if you’re hoping to find the right getaways to make your time in Texas a standard-bearer for the rest of the year’s activities, these seven travel ideas should definitely be on your radar:
