Laredo To Natchitoches: 10 Stops On The Historic El Camino Real De Los Tejas Trail

The El Camino Real De Los Tejas National Historic Trail is Texas’s Royal Road, also known as Old San Antonio Road, King’s Highway, and a trail contributing to the development and settlement of Texas stretching from Mexico City and Laredo at the Rio Grande to Natchitoches, Louisiana. Some parts of the interior route determined a network of passages by Native American relations, weather, and rugged terrain linking towns, forts, settlements, and missions in early Texas.

Let’s explore the historic trail, then and now, from Laredo to Natchitoches and points in between, with places to stay and eat.
