11 Roadside Attractions in Texas

Hit the road in Texas. These 11 roadside attractions will drop your jaw, blow your mind, and everything else in between. Visit Texas soon and check out these sites.


1. Cadillac Ranch

When you're staying in Amarillo, be sure to get out and explore the area. One of the top sites to visit in the Panhandle, and easily accessed from Interstate 27, is Cadillac Ranch. You'll see 10 unique Cadillac cars half-buried in the ground – and each one artfully painted and decorated by visitors who've toured the site before.

2. Mackenzie Park

Make your way into Lubbock and check out Mackenzie Park. Found just north of downtown, Mackenzie Park is a 248-acres sterling example of outdoor fun in Texas. It's home to the Meadowbrook Golf Course, and the American Windmill Museum. 

3. Big Spring State Park

Out in Big Bend Country, you'll find Big Spring State Park, an easy drive off of Interstate 20. It's in the city of Big Spring – aptly named – and is 382 acres in size. There are numerous hiking and cycling trails at Big Spring SP, and excellent picnic areas; ideal during spring!

4. World Birding Center

Along the border, you'll find the World Birding Center in McAllen. Accessed nice and easily from Interstate 2, the World Birding Center is a conglomeration nine different birding and bird-watching centers, all found along the Rio Grande

5. Texas State Aquarium

Big Spring State Park is a Must-Visit in Texas

Make travel plans to explore the Texas Gulf Coast and check out the Texas State Aquarium. Found in Corpus Christi, the Texas State Aquarium is home to the Hawn Wild Flight Theater – check it out this summer in coastal Texas.

6. La Villita Historic Arts Village

Near downtown San Antonio, you'll no doubt want to pull off the main road and visit the La Villita Historic Arts Village. You'll explore the Arneson River Theatre, the River Walk, and so much more. 

7. Deep Eddy Pool

You'll no doubt find your way into Austin, and when you do, be sure to check out the Deep Eddy Pool. Built in 1915, Deep Eddy Pool is the oldest public pool in Texas. You'll find it off of Mopac Blvd., along the Lady Bird Lake. It's the perfect cool-down spot during summer.

Catch a Movie at the Alamo Drafthouse - The Ritz in Austin

8. Alamo Drafthouse - The Ritz

Another excellent stop in Austin, the Alamo Drafthouse - The Ritz, is a must-visit for movie-goers. There's a full drink and food menu at The Ritz, so be sure you have a designated driver. 

9. Space Center Houston

Your visit to Texas will certainly take you to the Houston area, and when it does, be sure to check out Space Center Houston. This premier site is found just off of Interstate 45, and is a quick drive from Houston proper, and the charming city of Alvin.

10. Lake Ray Hubbard

Closer to the Dallas Metro Area, you can find Lake Ray Hubbard, an exceptional attraction in the city of Rockwall. Across the 23,000 acres at Lake Ray Hubbard, you can launch your boat, fish from the shore, hike some of the trails, and when it's windy, get your kite out! 

11. Dallas World Aquarium

Though Texas is home to a seemingly never-ending list of attractions and must-visit sites, your stay in Dallas should yield a tour of the Dallas World Aquarium. Ideal for those traveling with kids, the DWA is right in the heart of downtown Dallas, and features plants and animal life from 14 different countries. One of the must-see exhibits here is the Orinoco-Secrets of the River Rainforest Exhibit.
