Nestled in the middle of Texas’s Gulf Coast, this small waterfront city is a great respite from the Texas heat. The town is fronted by a 2,200-foot boardwalk, as well as the Indianola Fishing Marina, where anglers cast for trout, redfish, and flounder. If you’re not cooking these swimmers on the barbecue, snag a table at Texas Traditions, a Lone Star State-style family restaurant where comfort foods such as chicken and dumplings and potato skins pile high on long wooden tables.
