Veer off the interstate and explore strange, sublime, and breathtaking sights. It's all available on the backroads of Texas.

Texas is the second largest state in the United States, and you can be sure it's home to plenty of incredible sights waiting just off the beaten path.Backroads of Texasguides readers off the main drag where they can find intriguing sites, offbeat characters, and glorious landscapes. These are the sights normally missed by interstate-centric travelers.

The book includes thirty backroad drives and excursions that take travelers into the boondocks where all the craziest natural sights occur. Watch frenzied bats as they fly by the thousands from San Angelo's Foster Road Bridge. Catch your breath as you drink in the majestic Guadalupe Mountains. Get ready for goosebumps when you spelunk into the shadowy depths of Inner Space Cavern, and try not to get spooked when you see the paranormal "ghost lights" near the eclectic town of Marfa. These off-road sights are what truly set the Lone Star State apart from its neighbors.
