Folks,

Looking for a beautiful route to follow traveling from Austin to San Antonio next Sunday, Easter. I hear the wildflowers are wonderful to see.

Suggestions, please and Thanks!

Nope. I took 281 from Stephenville to San Antonio last Monday. The only good wildflower areas were north of 290, near Marble Falls and Burnet. Unless you're coming from north of Austin, I can't recommend taking 281 to see wildflowers.

Go to Driftwood, have the Salt-lick. Go to Mandola vineyards. Take 150 W to RR 12. Take RR 12 to Wimberley. Check out the olive grove. Then head to RR 32 go west to Canyon Lake on up to Blanco. Have some fun in Blanco. Head south on US 281. Very round about way, but beautiful drive.

OR

Go up-and-down RR32 east of Blanco along the Devil's Backbone. Then catch RR12 into Wimberley and follow it to San Marcos. From there, take Hopkins (which becomes Hunter) Road into New Braunfels. At that point, you'll be driving along the old stagecoach route that used to connect Austin and San Antonio. Stay on Hunter until you reach Gruene, and stop for a burger at Grist Mill. Then catch Hwy 46 West to reconnect with 281.
It's a wandering route, but rewarding.

Not sure about the wildflowers but both ways are beautiful.

The EARLIER the better if traffic is what it can be normally on that day!

Thanks, but for once I'm a tourist in no rush.... After all, I live in the NY City area where holiday traffic is often a problem, but not while I'm in Texas!!
