Roadtrip

We all know my preferred method of traveling is flight. So when my sister came up with the brilliant idea of a road trip from Texas to New York, I was not a fan. After thinking it through, I finally decided it would either be the worst decision of my travel life or a great experience. It turned out to be the latter.


Texas

Getting to Texas was fairly simple. Cashed in 10K Advantage points for a one-way to Dallas. I choose Hertz as my car rental as they were the only ones allowing drop-offs in New York City at the time. I spent the day in Dallas, more on my trip here.

Day 2 of the trip started at 6:30 am. We got muffins from the Westin DFW and hot tea. We followed the route to I30 and drove until we got to Texarkana, Arkansas. This was a planned rest stop as it would be the only stop in the state.

We learned a little about the Natural state in my short time at the rest stop. The attendant was knowledgeable and very open about sharing his facts about the state. They also gave out free Little Debbie snacks as they were produced in the state. I know it doesn't jump out as the first place to visit on a road trip but it does have a few places I wouldn't mind visiting in the future.
