Day 9 of January, I don't think it is too soon for anyone to have broken any New Year resolutions. If you are like me and still mentally thinking about your list, let me add one for you. Travel. But travel in a way that is budget-friendly. If you take trips that won't break the bank, you have the opportunity to travel more, it's a win-win.


San Antonio Japanese Tea Garden-this garden features a floral display with shaded walkways, stone bridges, a 60-foot waterfall, and ponds filled with Koi. Located at 3853 N St Mary's St in San Antonio and open 7 am to 5 pm 7 days a week, there is no charge to visit the garden.

Rockport, Texas/Rockport Beach is located 7 hours away from the Permian Basin and is Texas' 1st blue wave beach and is free to enter the beach by foot.

Palestine Texas State Railroad-take a 30-minute ride from Palestine to Rusk, TX on the Texas State Railroad. Located in East Texas, price for adults is $32, and children ages 2-11 only $20.

If you are looking for the perfect Spring Break getaway, summer vacation or just a long weekend away from home, these 3 spots in Texas should definitely be on your list at little to no cost to you and your family to visit.

I can honestly say I did not even know the Texas State Railroad existed but now I must try it at least once in my lifetime and the Japanese Garden in San Antonio looks spectacular!
