Looking for any excuse to get away this winter or just a daytrip while on business in the Lone Star State? We have a lineup of warm-weather festivals all winter long, deep in the heart of Texas.

Luckenbach Blues Festival

In Luckenbach, Texas, guests and locals celebrate the 12th annual celebration of blues, art and history, Jan 19, 2019. Hosted in the Luckenbach Texas Dance Hall, guests enjoy live performances from an array of music talents. Luckenbach is about 15 minutes from Fredericksburg and about an hour from Austin.

The Round Top Antique Show, hosted Jan. 24–27, 2019, attracts antique lovers from all over for unique pieces and one-of-a-kind oddities. Now open for the 50th year, guests can shop vintage items, repurposed furniture and goods.

Dutch Oven Cookoff

Picture a Wild West ghost town, and you might have Terlingua, Texas, in mind. The historic locale attracts visitors from all over during the annual Dutch Oven Cookoff with music, auctions and good Southern cooking, Feb 3–4, 2019.

Play It Again Concert

Jazz may not be the first genre you think of when you hear Texas, but, in San Angelo, travelers enjoy a whole afternoon of it during the West Texas Jazz Orchestra, Feb. 17, 2019. Expect the sounds of Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller along with many others.

Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras is always a good time and this year, in Galveston, Texas, guests celebrate in the historic town with parades and parties, Feb. 22–24, 2019. There will be live musical performances, dancing, street parties and enough food to feed an army.

Global Gateway

SINCE ABOUT 2000, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has been the busiest airport not only in the United States but also in the world. Each year more than 100 million passengers pass through the gateway, so it only makes sense the airport continues to evolve.

Athens: A city that charms its guests and stirs their emotions

The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.

Piedmont Paradise

DON’T EXPECT TURIN TO FIT your image of Italy. It’s Italian, all right — the evening passeggiata and a love of good food and wine are alive and well. But you’ll look in vain for medieval cobbled streets, crumbling castles and works by Michelangelo (who never set foot here). Instead, although you’ll find some Roman ruins, you’ll also find a faux medieval village, a world-class film museum and a café life that rivals Vienna’s. You and your family will have fun here.
