The state of Texas is crossed by two major interstate highways. Starting at Brownsville on the Rio Grande-the border with Mexico, Interstate 35 winds its way northwards to the Red River at the Oklahoma state line. This is where the “Red River Rivalry” of college football has its origins.
It passes through the cities of San Antonio, Austin, Waco, both Dallas and Fort Worth, before its last Texas city of Gainesville. Be sure to stop at the last HEB supermarket on your way out of state!
The other thoroughfare, Interstate 10, starts in the west at El Paso and progresses past the west Texas mountains before passing through both San Antonio and then Houston before exiting the state at Beaumont on the Louisiana border.
Both of these roadways take the traveler through beautiful landscapes, over the mighty Colorado and Brazos Rivers, and past historic cities. They are both worthy of a road trip, even if you are only passing through.
