The first week in April is deemed National Read a Road Map week and we thought there was no better way to celebrate than by exploring what a new place has to offer! There are many South Texas cities full of culture and can't-miss experiences, so while MINI Connected with navigation is always going to make sure you're traveling the correct path, break out the traditional road map, grab a friend, and motor over to one of these neighboring towns and check out what the Hill Country has to offer!

  1. Boerne. This San Antonio neighbor is just outside of 30 miles from San Antonio. Lined with antique markets, coffee shops, beer gardens, and hiking trails, this small town attracts many enthusiasts. Whether you enjoy shopping or nature, you'll find much to keep you occupied.

  2. Fredericksburg. You won't travel long before you'll run into one of Hill Country's favorite towns. It's a popular old German settlement known for wineries, wildflower farms, spas, music events and more. The cherry on top is the National Museum of the Pacific War.

  3. New Braunfels. Along Interstate 35's "Golden Corridor" is the city of New Braunfels which draws in tourists who typically come to experience fun on the water. Whether you prefer a day at the waterpark (Schlitterbahn), or riding inner tubes down the Guadalupe river, there is always a way to cool off from the Texas heat.

  4. Austin. The options for activities are endless when it comes to this quirky, and ever-growing city. Whether you enjoy playing downtown or in nature, brunching or nightlife--there is an option for everyone.

  5. San Marcos. Based on archeological findings, this town goes back nearly 12,000 years. Its historic downtown features quaint shops, music venues, and a slew of restaurants to enjoy. There's a lot of history, culture, and beauty you don't want to miss out on.
