The Daytripper

From the well-known landmarks to the completely obscure dives and hideaways, join host Chet Garner as he takes you on an adventure throughout Texas and then gets you back home before dark (or at least close enough). You're sure to leave each episode excited and eager to get out of your own seat and launch a daytrip adventure of your own.
