Sleeping

You'll find chain hotels along I-35 and near larger towns. B&Bs, inns, cottages, cabins and casitas, however, are the dominant lodging choices, and they tend to be top-notch, offering the latest amenities with a personal touch. You may find cheaper rates, and no minimum stay requirements, at family-owned motels, which are also common. Campgrounds and RV sites are typically found beside rivers and in state parks and recreation areas.
