When I started looking around online for results, I wasn’t sure what to expect, part of me was guessing that maybe Cancun, Mexico would be on that list because it’s only a couple hour flight from DFW, Austin or Houston.

Looking for Road Trip Ideas? 

When I found a list created by Trip 101 I quickly noticed that the destinations listed mostly seemed like road trip vacations, which can be a lot of fun.
