Ft Worth to W of San Antonio 281 as Alt to I35?

It sounds like we are wanting to avoid I35 thru mid-Texas. Can anyone give us any info on taking US 281 South from I20 to 1604? Anything to be aware of? We are specifically traveling between Shady Creek RV Park in Aubrey and Alsatian RV Resort in Castroville. Thank you.

I have gone that way recently. The road is good the entire way. So much better than I-35.

and shorter and more purty

We went to Ingram, Tx with the Boomers and were stunned by how much that area and Kerrville reminded us of Colorado (sorta!)

If not in a mad hurry, Head West on I-20 to Texas Highway 16 and take that self. Even prettier than 281 :-)

281 South will be fine. Two lane each direction for a lot of the trip. You will go through a few small towns. Blanco is definitely one to watch your speed in.

281 is always high on our list. I-35 is below the bottom of it!

Southbound out of Marble Falls has a unique stoplight. It is right at the base of the hill where you are climbing out of town. I never seem to catch the light and it is a slog up and out of there if you are hauling heavy!

Still nice view once you get to the top though.
