5 places you can visit on one tank of gas from Houston

It can be for Spring Break or maybe a weekend getaway. Eyewitness News is taking you to nearby five places on one tank of gas.

AAA says these destinations will help you escape the city without emptying your wallet.

Waco, Texas
There's more to discover than Chip and Joanna Gaines's Magnolia Market. There's the beautiful Cameron Park along the Brazos River. Also, visit the Dr. Pepper Museum and the Waco Mammoth National Monument.

San Antonio, Texas
Of course, the river walk is free and so are cathedral tours, but brewery tours are also an option.

Lake Mineral Wells State Park

This one is for the outdoor enthusiasts. There are rock climbing, hiking trails, boating and camping options.

New Orleans, Louisiana
Self-guided tours through Garden District or French Quarter. Also, free-cooking demonstrations at the city's farmer's markets are a lot of fun if you're trying to learn how to whip up Cajun and Creole dishes at home.

Fredericksburg, Texas
Of course, there are the wineries and shopping. But you can also get an RV campsite for about $37 a night. Enchanted Rock is also right outside Fredericksburg. At night, the star-gazing is amazing and the sunsets and sunrises are beautiful.
