We are a family of four from Europe (daughters 7 and 12) on a road trip in the US in June /July this year. I would love to get some help to plan how to best get from Lubbock to Corpus Christi and what to visit and where to stay overnight.
This is what my planning looks like at this moment:
Leave Lubbock early on a Sunday morning and drive to Abilene for lunch (a 4-hour drive according to Via Michelin, but mapquests says it's less? If it's 4 hours, where would be a good place to stop?) Visit Abilene (what are the must-do's in an afternoon?) and then drive on and stay for the night somewhere between Abilene and Austin (but where?!). The next day drive to Austin, visit for a few hours (I'm sure there are things to see for days, but what would be the most important?), then continue to San Antonio (1h30? Visit the River Walk?) and on to Corpus Christi (2h30?) for the night.
How does this sound to you? What would you suggest to us? I really appreciate any help you can give us, this is for us a trip of a lifetime and we'd like to plan it well. Thank you!
