It's a BIG state.
Traveling Texas has something for everyone. i'd be hard pressed to know where to start. Salado is between Waco and Austin on I-35. It's a nice change of pace with a lot of Texas history. I met William Slaughter (Now deceased and an artist of great standing) at an Art Gallery there. He did oils of Texas Hill Country and like many, a fine gentleman to learn about his concept of art and painting. My wife thought he was the hired help but he was most gracious. Of course, I had to repay his humility thus I bought one of his offerings. It still is in our home. Personally autographed on the back.
