Just down the road from Austin, the Texas Hill Country ranked 45th on the list. Its rolling rivers, lush green countryside and rustic charm attract visitors to this premier destination every year. If you’re interested in a wine tasting tour, there are several locations to choose from, including Fall Creek Vineyards and Duchman Family Winery.

For those who just want a cool country retreat, venture to the towns of Fredericksburg or Wimberley.


“Fredericksburg is always a hot spot. They have a great hotel, so you might need to get yourself an Airbnb or a cabin,” Northcutt said.

There are several other Texas destinations that are particularly attractive to Houston customers.

“People are drawn to Austin a lot because they have the waterway and Lake Travis,” Northcutt said. “There’s also Horseshoe Bay, Texas. It’s a scenic spot that’s a bit of a hideaway. Another great place is Grapevine, Texas and Great Wolf Lodge, which is great for families.”
