​​Fifty Years of

  Traveling Texas!




For 50 years, travelers have been experiencing the State’s rich history, culture, and heritage from the Texas Travel Trails. Today, those driving trails have become much more than iconic blue and white signs; they’ve become the Texas Heritage Trails Program.

Half a century of leading travelers to and through Texas, while preserving Texas history, heritage, and culture - calls for a celebration!

To promote the 50th anniversary of the Heritage Trails Program, the Texas Historical Commission is hosting a year-long sweepstakes – “Stay an Extra Day in Texas.”  Each month, the THC highlights a different Trail Region. Visit www.texasheritagetrails.com for a chance to win lodging, tours, and meals for two!

In true Texas-style, each Trail is honoring the inaugural year in a unique way, check out our 50th Anniversary Events page for details on heritage caravans, virtual tours, giveaways and more.
