blaat has indicated that this thread is about USA


I'll be in Houston, Texas from the 19th of October till the 10th of November. As my friends will be working during the week, I'm looking for nice things to do. Max 2 day trip from Houston. I would like to see some real American nature and culture... I love waterfalls!!
but.... It would be really nice if I could get there by bus or so.
So please let me know if you have some good suggestions about what to do, and what to see!

Well, just a few quick thoughts. Austin would be my number one destination followed by San Antonio and both can be gotten to by bus. As well there's much to do and see in both places. Don't know about accomadations, but I would guess that there would be hostels in Austin, but I don't know about San Antonio. You could also go to Galveston, and I assume you could get a bus there as well. I hope this is of some help to you.

i think you better plan to drive. Unless you got loads of time, Houston and Texas in general is not really bus friendly.

Will suggest you skip Galveston. If you only have 2 days:

1) Nasa in Houston + Houston itself


2) Austin


3) San Anotnio

Think you can only pick 1 of the above.
