INFORMATION ABOUT TEXAS
The Lone Star State is huge and what better way to explore the vibrant bustling cities or endless dusty national parks than with Abercrombie & Kent. The strikingly independent State offers a piece of America like nowhere else. Rock & Roll, a vibrant cultural, cowboy heritage and some of the most untouched landscapes on the continent. Many city lovers flock to Dallas, known for 'that' TV show, however here you'll immerse yourself in arts, culture and incredible cuisine whilst preparing for your next journey. The city is great base to start your road trip adventure and, with plenty of friendly people giving their 'insight' and advice you find Dallas hard to leave!

Austin is the live music capital of the world with more than 250 music venues dotted throughout its vibrant streets. A melting pot of different scenes, the eclectic, passionate and fi ercely patriotic crowd is made up of hipsters, rockers and of course, country and western fans. Downtown, soaring ultramodern skyscrapers sit alongside grand historic buildings, refl ected in the wide ribbon of the mighty Colorado River. We like colourful SoCo: a hip strip of boutiques and restaurants that snakes its way into the city with a burgeoning food truck scene. Food is a big passion here: enjoy the famous breakfast tacos from East Side favourite Juan in a Million, or eat waterside at Hula Hut on Lake Austin.

The laidback lifestyle makes it hard to get stressed out, and the emphasis here is on the great outdoors. The University Campus, Texas State Capitol and Congress Avenue Bridge are all must-sees, but take a walk down Sixth Street to meet local Texans who will gladly share stories over a food truck takeaway. Austin isn't all streets and skyscrapers: the Botanical Gardens, Umlauf Sculpture Gardens and the nearby countryside are a refreshing pause from city living. A private tour of the University of Texas campus is great for history buffs. The LBJ Museum documents the turbulent 1960s from Civil Rights protests and victories to the heartbreak of the Vietnam War, and you'll have insider access with A&K.

There's only one way to travel in Texas. The Texan road will not only take you from eclectic cities, but will take you all the way to one of our favorite off the beaten path National Parks - Big Bend and smaller backcountry towns along the way. Big Bend National Park encompasses the largest protected area of the Chihuahuan Desert in the United Sates and with the mighty Rio Grande there is nothing but beautiful views, diverse landscapes and hidden treasures along the way. They say everything is 'bigger' in Texas and we do agree!
