Texas State Highway 95 marks the boundary between the fertile farmland to the east and the rocky uplift known as the Balcones Fault to the west. Well before I-35 dominated north-south traffic, TX 95 was the way to go. And it still is for a leisurely trip that includes everything from the famous Coors brewery to historic railroads, forts, and Indian fights. And don't forget the drag racing!
