Remember if you are coming on a package with us, we can organise airport pickup from Austin airport.

By air
The nearest international airports are Austin and San Antonio. Try skyscanner.com to find out what cheap airlines will get you there. The drive from San Antonio, and also Houston are very easy, wide roads, although there isn't much in Texas in the name of scenery.

By road to the COTA
Coming from Austin downtown area, we recommend I-35 South, east on E Ben White Blvd (Tx-71 E) to the exit to Montopolis, and get on Burleson Road. Take Burleson Road SE to South Highway 183. Take a right, and head south on S Hwy 183. Turn left on FM812 (Dee Gabriel Collins Rd). Follow this road until you arrive at Circuit of the Americas on your left.

From Houston: Exit Houston on Interstate 10 West, and continue west until Columbus. At Columbus, take exit 695 to TX-71 West. Take TX-71 W for about 1 hour 15 minutes to Circuit of the Americas Blvd. The drive should take about 2 hours and 20 minutes.

In Texas, trains are for oil and coal! Just kidding, there is an Amtrak between San Antonio and Austin once per day.
