Big Bend NP and Fort Davis are gorgeous areas. UT runs a consortium of telescopes in Fort Davis and has dark skies agreements with local communities and you can tour the telescopes. Do night time assisted viewings too, if weather is cooperative. Austin and San Antonio are family friendly and lots of activities. Florida/Alabama gulf coast is arguably in driving distance, but that comes with Florida and Alabama approach to COVID.
