Texas is a country unto itself. Everything in the state of Texas seems to be larger and grander. Considered to be the second most populous and the second largest state in the US, Texas is truly defined by its distinctive culture, rich history, fiercely independent attitude and prominent personality. Things like oil and cattle fueled the Texan economy, but despite its image of oil wells and longhorns, Texas still boasts of an increasingly urban atmosphere. It is home to some of the best cities in the US like San Antonio, Dallas and Houston and also boasts of sprawling suburbs and spectacular skylines.
What makes the state of Texas so special is that despite having existed under six different nations, the state still manages to retain its unique and independent spirit and beautiful culture. Texans are famous for their unusual accent and their generous hospitality. They have a penchant for larger-than-life things and can prove to be extremely interesting travel companions. Most Americans either love the state of Texas or they simply hate it. The locals believe that they are really special to have been born in Texas, but this is what makes them so unique and different. They believe in speaking openly and are never known to hold back. Things might not exactly be cheap in the state, but you can always expect to find all sorts of accommodation options that perfectly suit your preferences and your budgets.
Texas has always been famous as the state of contrasts. Glittering cities peacefully coexist with old world cowboy towns, industrial growth runs hand in hand with rodeos and beaches slowly give way to vast arid deserts. Like everything else, the weather of Texas is also known to be extreme. The summers are extremely warm with temperatures often rising above 100ºF (38ºC). The humidity can become unbearable during the summer months and things like hailstorms and tornadoes are quite common as well. On the other hand, the winter, spring and autumn seasons are relatively pleasant and the temperature hardly ever dips below the freezing point.
The Lone Star State is its own man and it surely offers each visitor with a lot of fun and excitement. The cowboy culture and honky-tonk dancing might be the most popular attractions of the state, but historic attractions like The Alamo, cultural attractions like the local music scene of Austin and the rodeos of Fort Worth hold their own charm.
Another major highlight in the state of Texas is its 600 mile coastline. The beaches of Galveston and Padre Island are as good as they get and they offer visitors with fascinating recreational activities throughout the year. As you head inland, national parks like the Guadalupe Mountains and the Big Bend offer miles of exciting trails and intimate desert experiences. In between all this natural beauty, lie all sorts of towns and cities that fulfill all your needs and help you make your trip to Texas truly memorable.
Some of the main highlights of Texas include the Padre Island National Seashore, the legendary bars of Dallas and Fort Worth, the world class rodeo of Houston and Fort Worth, the cowboy ranches of San Antonio and the NASA Space Center in Houston.
