Doesn't matter who you talk to in the State of Texas-a 5 hour drive is seen as a short distance to travel. Whether it's to a concert, a sports event, or just to see a part of the state you haven't been to yet or you love to go to. The standard destination road trip here is 5 hours regardless of the reason. Here we are about to embark on summer vacation season for 2022 with freedoms we haven't seen in at least a year and a half with no restrictions on anything anymore pandemic-related.

Time to get out and enjoy! And what better way than with a trip that is far from the typical. There's a place 5 hours from here that's just outside Austin in Wimberly, Texas called Collective Hill Country. It's a retreat overlooking the Montesino Ranch. If camping is your thing, this is all the fun of camping without 'roughing' it, so to speak. "Glamping" is probably a more accurate word. There are wineries, galleries, and music venues nearby-not to mention the amazing food. But rather than tell you all about it, why don't we just show you?

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
