San Antonio Trip

I am trailering my Camaro and Ducati Diavel to the San Antonio Hill Country area come mid March.
Are there any must do roads other than The Sisters? Looking for any advice on things to do,see or eat while in the area.
I will be there for a couple of weeks so can cover a lot of ground.

Thanks in advance for any tips offered.

If you go a couple weeks later there is the GP races in Austin. Pretty good time if you like bikes.

Farm road 337, just outside Leakey TX. Great road for either.

Hit all back roads thru Fredicksburg, Johnson city, towards Austin, then back thru New Braunfels, Canyon Lake back to SA. I ride a lot myself by myself in either my Vert or Harley. Gimme a call the more the merrier! I also ride to Rockport a lot I have a fishing boat there on the coast so it's always an option as well.

Beautiful vehicles.

I would highly HIGHLY recommend Texas Roadhouse if you want yourself a big steak and Texan Cowboy experience.

It's all subjective I guess. Anytime someone from out of state comes to visit I always take them to Texas Roadhouse and they love it.

I mean maybe dollar for dollar or better quality of food there are better options of course. But I'm just talking about the entire experience and it being Texan as heck and all.

Could take the bypass toll way from Austin To San Antonio -- Speed limit is 90 or 95!

Give you a chance to open it up a bit...

Being Canadian I am not sure how to pay for toll roads in Texas. Any ideas or should I just go and see if I get a bill in the mail?

They just send you a bill based on your license plate. I'm not sure the DMV keeps a record of Canadian plates though...

I'd love to see your car and bike. My girlfriend bartends at a nice resturaunt in Gruene if you have some time to stop in the New Braunfels area.

I've stayed in San Antonio the last 2 years and driven up to Austin on the Toll roads. 2 years in a row and I've never got a bill. Wonder if it's because I'm from out of state?
