We are a couple - flying in to LA on the 1st of June 2014.
Fly back in to LA on the 12th of June 2014.
We have two shows booked - The Bellamy Brothers June 6, 7:30pm at The Dosey Doe Big Barn, Woodlands - Houston & Don Williams in Amarillo June 11th 08:30pm.
I initially thought of driving from LA but that is now out of the question - I would much rather spend that valuable time driving in Texas.
Would appreciate any help, as I have never been there before, but being country inclined, would love to drive through country hills, cowboy style saloons, watch a couple of rodeos, would love to see old fabled towns/cities famous in Country & Western music El Paso, Abilene, San Antonio, Amarillo ( of course ) and any other recommendations.
Any ideas on where to fly in - then pick up the car and go crazy driving, watching rodeos, eating some great tex-mex food and last stop being Amarillo. Would love to hear some routes that I must take, rodeos I must watch, other sights/shows I should see and good run of the mill house/home cooked style Tex-Mex food and Texas Chilli/steaks places to visit.
I know I am asking a lot - any help would most certainly be appreciated.
