I am working on our trip this year going from Arizona to Florida and back. One section is going from Galveston to Victoria. How is TX 6 to 69 then onto 59? We really want to avoid Houston (been there done that and don't want to do it again) and trying to avoid tons of small towns with the motorhome. We usually park the rig then go explore the small towns.
Thanks,
Janet

Unless you are actually wanting to go Galveston and Arizona is your destination or origin I would avoid Houston with a more northerly route like US290 and TX 105. Personally I do not consider Houston a problem using I10 straight thru on weekends.

Last time we were on TX-6 (San Antonia to Dickinson) in Oct 2018, it was nice. A lot of stop lights, but no issues with a lot of traffic on a Sunday. Would not want to be on it during the week during rush hour.

Our route was I-10 to Sealy then TX-36 to Rosenberg, Alt-90 to TX-6.

Houston doesn't bother me, but I spent 30 years driving across Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Houston. I know the traffic times, the radio stations to listen to, and alternate routes through city streets. Do not recommend those not familiar with those cities doing that.
