Leaving the big city behind, you will drive west to the historic town of Fredericksburg where you will experience a very different pace of life. This beautiful town is nestled in stunning Hill Country; in the heart of Wine Country, with a vibrant art and live music scene. Perhaps during your stay, you may choose to take a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through the iconic historic district or spend the afternoon wine tasting on 290 Wine Road. We also recommend a visit to Downtown Lukenbach, which consists of just three buildings – a ramshackle tavern/general store, a blacksmith shop and an old-time dance hall – but this is also where Willie Nelson wrote a number of his songs, bringing it to fame.
Today you will make the short drive to the Cowboy Capital of the World – Bandera, where you’ll enjoy a two night stay at a traditional cowboy ranch. Wake up with a horseback ride to a cowboy cook-out breakfast, or stay at the corral where traditional meals are served. Mayan offers numerous daytime activities, and in the evening you can enjoy music and entertainment at the ranch or in nearby downtown, which has traditional-styled saloons and even a line-dancing hall. Two horseback rides are included daily, with horses suitable for beginners and intermediate riders.Mayan Dude Ranch
Leaving cowboy country behind, it is just a short and scenic journey to San Antonio.

Get ready for another big city experience, as today you journey east to the USA’s fourth largest city; Houston. Comprising a number of distinct districts, enjoy world-class ballet, opera and performing arts in city’s Theatre District, visit the many museums in the Museum District, and indulge at Houston Galleria; one of America’s largest shopping malls in the Galleria District. We suggest you visit the NASA Space Center Houston where America’s fascinating history and passion for outer space comes to life. En route, perhaps call at Kemah Broadwalk’s amusement park. This quaint little waterfront village area offers a number of restaurants lining the stunning marina.
