Question San Antonio to New Waverly, TX

In a couple of weeks, we'll be traveling from the San Antonio area to New Waverly, TX. New Waverly is about 40 miles north of Houston.

The mapping programs route us along I-10 to a loop on the outskirts of Houston and then north on I-45. But I'm wondering if there's a route we can take that will keep us further away from Houston and still stay on good roads.

We like to get off the interstates when we can, but not if it means traveling on twisty, turning, narrow roads.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Take I-10 to TX 36 (Sealy), to 159 (Bellville) to 6 (Hempstead) to 105 (just south of Navasota) to 90 to Anderson and finally 1375 into New Waverly. All the roads are ok, but there are several towns you will pass through.

If I had to make the trip, I'd go I-10 to Houston, take whichever toll road you choose on the west side and go up I-45. It's much faster and you don't have to go into downtown Houston. You still will probably have heavy traffic, though.

There are so many different ways to go - wow. I like Hwy 105 from Navasota to Conroe, then it's only 15 miles to New Waverly. Maybe not as scenic as Golden's route, but still has some scenery. 1395 will take you through part of the Sam Houston National Forest. All the roads in Texas are good as far as I'm concerned, with few exceptions. If you don't like twisty turney's , avoid 149. That's MC Haven.

Golden's route, except I'd take Hwy 105E to 336N loop to I-45N. You iwll only have 15 miles of I-45 to New Waverly. Not quite as Scenic, but would avoid Houston.

All in all, the shortest route is not necessarily the fastest route. If you decide to go I-10 and not avoid traffic, pick your time of day going through Houston. At 10 O'clock in the morning is much better than 7:30 in the morning, and 1:30-200 in the afternoon is better than 3:00-6:00 in the afternoon. Slow downs will be at the interstate exchanges. Houston just doesn't have those figured out yet, but they are trying. I-10 from the outskirts of Katy to almost Downtown is 4 and 5 lanes now. I always take the Beltway 8 toll road, but I have a pass and don't have to stop. That would be another annoyance. I'd try and stay off if I-610 loop. It can be a nightmare at times. JMHO
