US 77 from Waco to Victoria, take by pass , around Victoria stay on 77 for 21 miles to rt 239, take 239 to Tivoli and rt 35. Take rt 35 to Aransas Pass , then cut over to Port Aransas. Best way to go, some 2 lane, some 4 lane, all good road, no traffic and 70 - 75 mph limits.

You could also at Ft.Worth go Loop 820 West to I20W to 281 all the way to San Antonio.


Having spent 12 years in the Denton, TX area I would second this route. I35W through Ft. Worth can be quite congested; I35 through Austin even worse.

In fact, from I35 in Denton, 380 W to 156 S to 820 can be a good option if traveling during peak I35W hours. You'll hit some traffic lights, but 156 is generally a good 2 lane road.

Lots of great advice on DFW area. We usually use US281 from San Antonio to Denton to visit Gkids. Getting thru San Antonio is largely dependent on timing. Driving thru town after 9:30AM and before 3:30PM will avoid heaviest traffic. Routing to Port A routing--good advice. I like the SPID route that skips the ferry-that allows you to skip the ferry waiting lines. Have a great trip!

By FAR the best way to go to avoid traffic.

Just stay on I-35 to Waco and follow the above route.

You will keep your sanity that way.
