For many Texans, road trips through the great state of Texas are an adventure on its own! And there are so many fun, and for the most part free, roadside attractions you can check out.

When I say "roadside attractions" I mean checking out something like the fabulous Ms. Pearl- the giant squirrel statue!

Ms. Pearl lives at the Berdoll Pecan Candy and Gift Company in Cedar Creek- and she loves nuts! And as you can see, she's bright eyed and bushy-tailed and ready for you to get your perfect picture.

Here are just 7 more quirky spots through Texas where you can get that fabulous Instagram pic!
