Living along the Gulf Coast puts you near some of the most beautiful stretches of road to explore in all of Texas. Here are the most scenic routes near Houston, Texas, that you should navigate in a new Buick or GMC from West Point Buick GMC.
TX-146 to Galveston Island State Park
Certainly one of the most captivating drives in the area is a drive southeast down to Galveston Island State Park. While you could take the most direct route there and stay inland, we recommend staying along the coast and taking TX-146. It puts you close to some great bayside parks and overlooks where you can pause along the way.
TX-75 to Huntsville
If you prefer an inland destination, head north to the historic town of Huntsville. Again, you could take the faster, direct route of I-45, but we recommend taking your time and following TX-75 all the way. It provides a much better view of the farmlands, deep green pine trees, and rolling hills that are characteristic of the area.
TX-35 to South Padre Island
Another phenomenal coastal drive, the route to South Padre Island is definitely longer than our other suggestions (by almost 5 hours), but it definitely should be a bucket list drive for anyone living in Houston. Plan a whole weekend to enjoy the drive and take TX-35 through Victoria, Corpus Christi, and the Padre Island National Seashore.
If you live near Houston — which is where West Point Buick GMC is located — you’re within driving distance of these picturesque places. Plan your next outing in a new GMC Acadia or Buick Encore from our dealership.
