To the left is the driving map from St. Peters, MO to Austin, Tx with a stop in Texarkana, AR. Total estimated travel time is 14 hours 20 mins.
Our expectation is to do most of that trip on Saturday, March 22nd, stopping in Texarkana. This drive should be fairly relaxed as we’ll be taking off before noon and make stops along the way. Most likely we’ll stop around Memphis and around Little Rock.
My wife and I have never visited Little Rock, so we hope to stop and grab a few pictures there.
We plan to stay in Austin through till Saturday morning. Plans may change as weather conditions change, and/or other things develop during our stay.
Do feel free to invite us to breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, photography, or whatever. We are going to staying with a friend, and spending some evenings with her of course.
Some recommendations from friends:
Bob Bullock History Museum
Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center
Zilker Park Rose Garden
Salt Lick BBQ
Alamo Draft House
Stretch of South Congress between the river and E. Oltorf
Guero’s Taco Bar (shrimp fajitas FTW)

Thanks so much for the recommendations so far. Can’t wait to be in Austin, see the sites, visit with friends, take some pictures and eat at some interesting places.
