After Topsail heading West

Thinking about going a bit west any suggestions along rt10?

Any suggestions about the Rio Grand Valley in general or other ideas where to go we have about 2 weeks to spend time there or elsewhere.

I can drive 600 a day so can consider other locations.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

I know that it's kind of close to Topsail, but the Biloxi/Gulfport area of the Mississippi Gulf Coast is a nice place to visit.

Stuff to Consider....

Texas is cool - no doubt about it. We used to live there and certainly plenty of things to do and see. However, consider the following:

Mobile, AL is interesting - Bellingrath Gardens, lots of history.

Natchez Trace Parkway winds through three states Natchez Trace Parkway (U.S. National Park Service)

History of the blues and lots of U.S. history Mississippi Delta - Mississippi Delta Blues - Mississippi Tourism

New Orleans still has lots of things going on and you could stop by for a day or so and help out with Habitat for Humanity Volunteer Calendar

Western LA - Lafayette and environs - is great for enjoying Cajun culture, especially the food. Mebbe a bit of zydeco with your 'dads. Tour the Tabasco factory and snack on a little boudain.

If you go down the east coast of Texas and take the ferry to Galveston you will get an idea of what a hurricane can do. The last mile before the ferry was completely removed from the map except for the road. Not the prettiest site but reality.

Galveston has a great air museum.

If you go through Morgan City La ask someone to direct you to Reta Mae's restaurant. It is not on main street. The bread pudding I took out lasted me 3 days and the burger was a good size to split between you.

If you get up towards Amarillo, Palo Duro SP is very cool. Lots of critters, you drive down into the canyon following check-in.

We liked it a lot.
