We make the trip from Austin to Dallas and Fort Worth a lot, and that stretch of IH-35 can sure seem desolate. We point out landmarks on the way to the kids, like the gold dome at Baylor in Waco, and Papa Joe's in Lorena, site of the infamous Billy Joe Shaver incident. Schoepf's BBQ in Belton is my top choice for road chow, though George's Bar in Waco is interesting too, and Brahm's in Hillsboro is a good snack stop. A bunch of the landmarks that you need to know about to kill the boredom on this common drive for Austinites is HERE - what are some that I or they missed?
