History of Our Day Trips Guide

After our first child was born in 2001 my wife and I were always looking for something to do or somewhere to go on the weekends. Sometimes we just got in the car and drove in whatever direction the car was pointed. Sometimes we ran into something really interesting and sometimes we got stuck on an old muddy road. We never really had a plan we just drove around until we ran in to something interesting. Usually by the time we found a place it was time to go home. Sometimes we didn't have time to enjoy our discovery.

It didn't take me long to understand that we needed a plan. I started looking up information in travel books, maps and brochures. It usually took a few days to a couple of weeks to receive information from local attractions and city tourism departments so I'd have to order ahead of time. I'm a very spontaneous person so as you might imagine this was a little frustrating. I looked around on this new thing called the Internet. But couldn't find all that much information.

Most people today will not remember that the Internet was in it's infancy in the early 2000s. In those days there wasn't a real good way to look up much of anything. So we decided to do something about it. We started writing about our trips and posting them online. We asked locals to tell their stories and we posted a few images here and there. As thing progressed thousands of folks started to use the information we gathered to plan their own weekend trips. Today we are the top ranked Day Trips destination guide for Texas.

The last 11 years has been great. Today we work closely with local tourism departments all across the state to deliver the most current and up to-date information on things to do, events, attractions, restaurants and all sorts of things to do in each of these cities and towns. We even have information for towns that no longer exist.

Our Texas daytrip section is designed to make it easy to find the information quickly. The faster you get the information the faster you can get on the road. We hope you enjoy your Texas daytrip and we look forward to hearing about it on our Facebook page.

We hope all of our hard work over the years helps you explore Texas with your family. This is our family business and if we can do anything to improve it we sure would like to hear from you.
