Sometimes, residents in Texas wish to visit other places outside the state.

After all, they say that variety is the spice of life. So going out of town for a bit helps reset a person's mind for a little bit. Wherever they wish to go is up to them.

It could simply be going to the beach, or perhaps traveling out of state. Someone may even leave the country for a little bit if they're able. But if one is to leave for another place, they will either have to drive or even perhaps fly.

There's plenty of ways to travel in the Lone Star State, but for three cities in Texas, traveling to and from them isn't the best.
