They say everything is bigger in Texas. And if you consider all that the state has to offer, it is easy to see why the Lone Star State packs such a potent punch with travelers. Texas is filled to the brim with breathtaking countryside, significant historical attractions, diverse museums, pristine city parks, suburban shopping meccas, mouthwatering barbecues, and more. The second-largest state in the US, Texas is brimming with countless possibilities for fun and adventure. Geographically and culturally diverse, the state offers a wealth of unique attractions and things to do. From the cities to the coastal beaches, mountains, and deserts, vacation possibilities in Texas are extensive. Austin offers more music venues per capita than any other city and is known as the Live Music Capital of the World, Dallas is a shopper’s paradise offering more shopping centers per capita than any other city in the US, Houston is considered to be the most diverse city in the United States and their Museum District is amazing. For nature lovers, some of the best places to visit are the parks, like Big Bend National Park, set along a bend in the Rio Grande in West Texas, and Padre Island National Sea Shore, along the Gulf of Mexico. I highly encourage you to come to Texas and learn a little more about what makes it so awesome.
