Texas Road Trip

We recognize that every transfer students' experience is different, however, we know that many transfers face some of the same challenges as they transition into the university. This blog was created for transfers by transfers to share TIPS and insight on having the best semester you can at Texas A&M University.

    I am someone who likes to make the most of everyday. I do enjoy binge watching TV with my roommates all day every now and again, but in general, I like to feel like I did something that day. There are tons of fun day trips to be made. Just three weeks ago, I went to the Inner Space Caverns in Georgetown, TX (an hour and 45 minutes away). Not a bad drive and it was so much fun exploring the caves. Austin is just 30 minutes from Georgetown so we headed over after the caves to spend the day there. You can walk around South Congress, visit the capitol, go to fun food places (trust me, there is plenty to do in Austin).
     
    Once it gets a little warmer the Guadalupe and Comal River will be filled with people floating. There are tons of different companies and spots to start floating (in the general area of San Marcos/ New Braunfels). It’s about 2-3 hours away depending on which company you choose to float with. If you haven’t ever floated a Texas river, this is a must! So much fun and makes for an all-day relaxing trip as you float the river with friends.
     
    Houston is another easy day trip. There are tons of different things to do whether it be the Houston Zoo, the Downtown Aquarium, Houston Space Center, a concert, or just a day downtown, there is always something to do.

    There are plenty of ways to not let the day go to waste and if you need some more ideas check out Roadtrippers https://roadtrippers.com/map?lng=-97.89454072511859&lat=30.293001950020468&z=9.925565575611675
     
    You can type in a city and it will show you points of interest, attractions and culture, outdoors and recreation, and food in the city you are looking at!
