San Antonio, Texas
Not far from the US-Mexico border, San Antonio enjoys the benefits of a shared Mexican and American heritage. A site of great historical importance for Texas, alongside all the culture to take in, this city is also known for its food and drink, which alone makes it worth the trip from Houston. It makes for a perfect weekend getaway. The only thing between you and all that San Antonio has to offer is a 3hr drive west on the I-10.
