Family reunions are such a fun way to spend time and catch up with family you rarely get to see. However, you’ll most likely want to stay overnight in Dallas because it’s a 4.5-hour drive to reach
San Antonio
by car.
To avoid spending more time in your car than you have to, be sure to do the following:
  • Leave between peak traffic hours—avoiding the morning and evening commutes in both cities should keep you moving and lower your chances of being stuck in a
    traffic jam
  • Plan your stops—knowing where you intend to get gas or eat will allow you to cover a lot of miles with far less stress
  • Know your route—is there any construction,
    major accidents
    , or detours between you and your destination that may slow you down?
