Burger Joints, Fast Food Restaurants

There's nothing like starting the day with breakfast in a cosy and atmospheric cafe. A variety of burgers and bacon sandwiches, beef pork and chicken are made here. Among other things, it is worth trying salads, in addition to everything there are milkshakes and a fairly large selection of carbonated beverages.

Tyler Rose Garden


Today will be largely devoted to the survey of various picturesque places in the state. And the first thing we'll do is head to the picturesque Tyler Rose Garden, located in the small town of Tyler. The landscape of the park mainly consists of neat alleys, lawns, there are also several artificial reservoirs and small fountains.

Davy Crockett National Forest

The Davy Crockett National Park is about 160,000 acres of almost untouched nature. There are special recreation areas for tourists, as well as fenced off the habitats of wild animals. In the reserve there are places for walks and swimming, picnics and fishing, boat rides and just outdoor activities.

Daisy's Diner

Diners, American Restaurants

In the midst of the journey, you should always make small stops to rest and take a little breath. It's better for this place than a small cozy restaurant on the way. The atmosphere here is quite simple, but also hospitable. Nights of live music often take place. The menu offers American cuisine, namely sandwiches, burgers, salads and various snacks. It is also important to note that the restaurant is not open on Sunday.

McGovern Centennial Gardens

A cozy park for walks is just what you need when you want to enjoy nature and tranquility in the middle of a big city after a long journey. Houston, despite its many modern buildings and events, retains such oases of tranquility for evening walks, jogging or meetings with friends.

Rodeo Goat

Burger Joints

Dive into Texas cuisine at Rodeo Goat. The menu is full of classic burgers and sandwiches or their modern Texas variations, which are prepared with a variety of ingredients, such as a burger with sweet bacon, caramelized onions and peaches, and The Terlingua with chili sauce.
