    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.

    Yeah, long, long drive and depends on your starting point and destination, but you might want to think about ticking off long chunks of highway on the interstates and then focusing on one or two stops/scenic routes along the way. Santa Fe north through the San Luis Valley (to Buena Vista) is an amazing drive that's not too far off course. The Yellowstone/Grand Teton roads are also great. Pretty much any drive in Montana is good, even the freeways to some extent. If you can do the Eastern exit of Yellowstone (over Beartooth Pass to Cooke City, MT), I'd highly recommend it.

    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.

    San Marcos is a good place to start. Go up to the tower at Wonder Cave. You will get a panoramic view of the area. You can see the rolling hills and the plateau from there. Very nice view.
