Day 1 - Pick up your Houston campervan
If you've spent a night or two in Houston and have explored the city, you can head out to Cruise America. Head to the Gulf of Mexico and the legendary Galveston Beach. You'll be spending your first night nearby.
It is worth seeing Moody Gardens, an almost 100-hectare complex that combines an amusement park with a walking garden. If you're traveling with kids, definitely plan a visit to the Schlitterbahn Water Park with lots of slides, waterfalls, rushing streams and a fantastic Boogie Bahn Surf ride!
Day 2 and 3 - camper along the coast
There are many stops along the way to Port Aransas on Mustang Island and north of Padre Island. We recommend that you reserve a few days to rest, and take the time to explore the town of Corpus Christi and the nearby beaches.
Take a walk on the local beaches, go fishing or go for a swim at one of the beautiful beaches. Or take a walk around Marina, which is the focal point of Corpus Christi, and see the Galvan House by the way.
Day 4 & 5 - Direction San Antonio
Today we are going north, away from the beaches towards San Antonio. It was there that the famous Battle of the Alamo took place. This time you have a chance to visit one of the most important places in the history of the United States. Take the opportunity to wander the shops and visit one of the several cafes along the canal.
Let yourself be tempted by a river cruise that flows through the center of San Antonio or take a stroll along the charming waterfront. There are as many as 2 amusement parks in San Antonio. It would be nice to make time to visit SeaWorld water park and take a roller coaster ride in Six Flags, Texas.
Day 6 - RV to Abilene
We continue north to Abilene. The Abilene Park Complex comprises 29 parks and covers a total area of over 500 hectares. A popular attraction is the Abilene Zoo. On the evening of the second Thursday of the month, an event known as Artwalk takes place in downtown Abilene. You can then visit local museums for free, local musicians and artists present their achievements, and craftsmen set up stalls with local goods.
Day 7 - Fort Worth and Park Jellystone
Today we're going to Fort Worth. You certainly won't be bored at Jellystone, the park known for its Yogi Bear cartoons! You will spend the next night at this campground. This place is famous for its attractions for the whole family. Everyone will find something for themselves. Yes, you will certainly meet a Yoga Bear somewhere. It must be around somewhere. Kids will love the new pool - Pirate Bay with lots of water slides you won't want to climb down from!
Day 8 - Check out South Fork
It is worth visiting the most famous ranch in America - South Fork.
Day 9 - RV to Louisiana
It is worth stopping by and visiting one of the stately estates. Board the horse-drawn carriage that will transport you around the historic Natchez district in 45 minutes. A visit to the Natchez National Historical Park is worthwhile.

Take a walk to Jackson Square, see Basin Street and Audubon Park. You can also take a cruise on the Mississippi River aboard a steamboat.

Day 12 - Baton Rouge
Visit the Old State Capital Museum in Baton Rouge to learn about Louisiana and its history.

Day 13 - Return to Texas
Today we are returning to Texas, but on the way it is worth finding a moment to stop by the famous Charles Lake. You can even extend your trip and stay here for one night. You will certainly not be bored at the lake itself. Among the many attractions, it is worth mentioning a trip to the slightly less populated corners of Louisiana - this is where the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road will take you.
In Beaumont, visit the historic Charpentier district and the local museum to learn about its past.
