On January 5, 2022

There are so many things to see and do in Texas that it can actually be surprisingly challenging to pick just one or two for your weekend excursion, day trip, or extended visit. In fact, this list was originally going to be 7 places to visit, but we just had to add a few more.

The following is a list of 10 places you need to visit – and places you can visit when you ride our bus from Dallas to Houston. Give them a look and discover a great new experience as you travel through this state.

In Dallas

  1. AT&T Stadium – This is home of the Dallas Cowboys and a must-see location for any fan. Naturally, the best time to visit is on game day, but if you missed out on getting tickets or you are here during the off season, it’s still worth a look. The stadium’s architecture is amazing and there is plenty to do in the vicinity.
  2. John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza – The museum located here contains information about the assassination and the history of President John F. Kennedy himself. You don’t want to miss this exhibit. There are more than 90k items related to the assassination and how it impacted the world.
  3. Dallas Arts District – This walkable district is roughly 20 square blocks of museums, galleries, performing arts venues, restaurants, and a whole lot of creativity. You can come here again and again and always discover something new.

In Waco

Pepper Museum Waco Texas

  1. Pepper Museum – Did you know there was an entire museum dedicated to this refreshing beverage? There are actually 2 buildings to explore, including the historic 1906 Artesian Manufacturing & Bottling Company building. There are many fun experiences here for fans of this soda.
  2. Waco Mammoth National Monument – In 1978, mammoth bones were discovered here, and the excavation would later reveal the first and only evidence of a nursery herd of ice age mammoths.
  3. Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum – The Texas Rangers have practically been a symbol of this state for decades, and this museum preserves their history and offers a wide range of educational and fun events and activities.
