Best Known Road: Twisted Sisters (shown)
Once you head southwest of Austin, the Twisted Sisters have pretty much everything you’d want in a great road: over 100 miles of twists and turns, river-adjacent views, and plenty of cliffs. They’re quite possibly the best driving roads in Texas.
Lesser Known Road: FM 1155
Head due-east, just past Brenham—best known as the home of Blue Bell Ice Cream—and you’ll be rewarded with 30 minutes of tight corners, long bends, and a belly full of ice cream.
Best Known Road: FM 455 (shown)
Every Dallasite knows you must drive far past the sprawling suburbs if you want any semblance of a fun drive that doesn’t include egregious violations of the posted limit. For a good road that doesn’t involve crossing into Oklahoma, FM 455 is easily accessible but still relatively lightly traveled; and despite the mostly flat Texas landscape, it features a very rhythmic pattern of s-curves.
