If you've been itching to get out of town for a quick road trip I know just the place. What I consider a quick road trip is somewhere that doesn't take forever to get to. A quick road trip to me is being able to escape El Paso for a bit and return back home that very same day. Or if you want a weekend getaway then this place can be just that too. There's a place that is 3 hours away from El Paso, Texas you can escape to for fun, food, and a new atmosphere. One certain spot offers food, entertainment, and a place to stay. It's like killing two birds with one stone. Fort Davis Drug Store is a popular place that is known for its delicious food and treats. Almost everyone that has stayed there had no complaints about their food items for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Which you can observe some of the treats served in the video above from South Bay Marketing. Fort Davis Drug Store also holds events like a Ping Pong Tournament.

But if you're planning on a full weekend getaway then another place you can also visit in Fort Davis is Rattlers and Reptiles Museum. Tourists who have visited recommend visiting this place while you're in Fort Davis. At Rattlers and Reptiles you can get up close and personal (behind a glass of course) with different species. So if you're taking the family the kids would definitely appreciate checking out the Rattlers and Reptiles Museum. These are a couple of places you can visit that are 200 miles away from El Paso.
