Floresville to Victoria

April 1, 2016
US 181 / TX 239 / US 59

History hangs thick in the air of the South Texas Plains, where historical markers pepper the landscape. Extending 87 miles, this route offers peeks into the past, from the echoes of battle at Fannin Battleground State Historic Site to shades of old ways at Wilson County Jailhouse Museum in Floresville. Enclaves like Panna Maria and veritable ghost towns like Helena attest to the area’s unique German, Czech, and Polish influences, while delectable Mexican food awaits at surprising turns. In between all that culture and history, don’t hesitate to try out a few backroads for the fun curves and peaceful views.
