Howdy Ya'll! Join Special Journeys for some BBQ and Music in the great state of Texas!

When they say, 'everything is bigger in Texas' they mean it. Our trip first brings us to the Luckenbach, Texas. Here we'll experience the quiet charm of this infamous Texas town and enjoy the small things that life has to offer, bluebonnets, oak trees, peach orchards, and most importantly music. Luckenbach is THE place to go to listen to country music in the Big Star State. With a strong western aesthetic and a ghost-town feel we will stop by the famous General Store where you can grab a t-shirt, hat or other souvenir before heading over to enjoy some BBQ. It is the south after all! Pulled pork, yummy chicken, ribs with delicious macaroni and cheese, collard greens and more. Yum Yum!

Our next stop on this adventure brings us to Gruene Hall, Texas' oldest dance hall! Strap on those cowboy boots and get ready to move. Built in 1878, this is the oldest venue in the state to continuously run dance hall and has live music played every day. And if these walls could talk, this venue has hosted all of the famous names in country music, Meryl Haggard, George Straight, Lyle Lovett, Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson and more. Walking into the 6,000-square foot dance hall you'll see a high-pitched tin roof, lots of room for dancing, and a huge outdoor garden to hang out in.

Jump on in and get ready to dance on this Country Music adventure with Special Journeys!

Travelers only need to bring souvenir and snack money.

  • All prices shown are round trip prices and include all mandatory taxes and fees. Note: Soda cards on Royal Caribbean cruises are at your own expense (to keep the trip price fair for everyone).

  • Travelers that need to travel with a dedicated 1:1 staff require an additional, reduced price fare to cover the costs for that staff.

  • All trips with a domestic flight component cover one 50 pound checked bag. See the trip description for 10+ day trips as 2 bags are usually covered then. The cost for additional or overweight bags will be shown on your trip itinerary. There is no fee for carry-on bags but they are limited in size to the then current airline standards.

  • Medical equipment does not count as luggage but you must notify us in advance so we have room to transport this equipment!

  • Some trips require a passport (see trip description). We recommend getting the passport book, not the passport card. It can take 2 to 3 months to receive a passport so apply as early as possible. They are good for 10 years!

  • You can send in money (pre-pay) for a trip to be selected later.
