East Texas and the Gulf Coast

A Tailor-Made Fly-Drive Holiday to Texas & New Mexico, USA

This Fly drive arrives at the gateway airport of Dallas-Fort Worth, first stop in Dallas and then drive east to Jefferson on the Big Cypress Bayou once the second largest port in Texas and still retaining an historic quarter. Head south via Lufkin, flanked by the Angelina and Davy Crockett National Forests, to the Coast near Galveston, a highway for migratory birds. Follow the gulf coast southwest to Rockport near Corpus Christi with its great beaches and sheltered water behind the barrier islands.  From the Coast north to San Antonio with the Alamo and wonderful river walk. Then through the rolling landscape of the Hill Country to Fredericksburg with year round flowers and fashionable shopping. Return towards Dallas and the town of Granbury with antique shops and a restful atmosphere, before heading for the airport.



From a log cabin in 1840 Dallas has grown to a vibrant city with plenty to choose from; arts, sports, shopping and much more.


Set on Galveston Island surrounded by relaxing beaches. The Historic Downtown offers shops, antique stores and live entertainment in historic venues.

Gulf Coast

America’s third coast, long narrow barrier islands are separated from an inner shore line by wide shallow lagoons and salt marshes, providing diverse habitats.

Bird Watching

Texas hosts more species of birds than any other state. The Gulf Coast and Rio Grande Valley in spring and late autumn are popular with bird watchers.

Hill Country

The States heartland and wine region with towns dating back to the mid 1800’s. Beautiful scenery particularly along the rivers.
