    Try San Antonio, starting at the Riverwalk, with its awesome restaurants, shops, boat tours, etc, then head over to the Tower of the Americas nearby, 600 feet high with a restaurant at the top (or just take the elevator up for picture-taking), and be sure to see the Alamo nearby as well. When you're bored with that, go to the small community of New Braunfels north of the city a bit (45 minutes?) and see what an old German community in Texas is like, tons of shops, German food as well as the usual types, and lots of shade, which you'll appreciate if you go in the summer. If you want ocean, it's only about four hours from the beach at Padre Island... As a former San Antonio resident, these are the places I enjoyed most on a visit back there in 2009.

    This is a bit of a long shot, Ginger, but do you and your mother like birds? Fall is the season to catch the migration of songbirds, waterfowl, and other species as they head to warmer wintering grounds in the south in places like coastal Texas. The Great Texas Coastal Birding Trails offer a number of good driving itineraries where you can explore the natural wonders of the area. Check out Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, south of San Antonio and Austin, where the critically endangered whooping crane can be spotted from late October after migrating south from its northerly nesting grounds. Lots of other wildlife to spot here, too, including herons, alligators, pelicans, frogs, and some 390 species of other birds!

    Lake Palestine is really nice, and there are many camp grounds. It is located on Hwy 155 in between Tyler and Palestine. Texas is a beautiful state and I hope you and your husband have a wonderful time.
