It is really amazing the number of trips one can take, all within a short hour to two hour drive from Houston, and discover something beautiful. Whether one is looking for museums or parks, beds & breakfasts or unique businesses, or a host of other enjoyable activities, they can all be found within a short drive from Houston.
This site will be more of a journal or scrapbook of these trips friends and I take from time-to-time, primarily over the summer, and our thoughts and “ratings” of each place and trip. To read the entries in the journal, simply click on the travel journal anywhere on the site.
We plan to categorize the places we visit by type and by direction. So, if you are looking for museums, for example, we will have a page listing these; if you are looking to see what is out west of Houston, then you can view this way as well.
Hopefully, it will encourage you to do a little exploring and we would love to hear from you regarding your impressions and recommendations.
I’ll probably add a forum to this site as I have time, so we can all share our trips and recommendations. Fortunately, since I do web design for a living, it won’t cost me much more than my time!
