As the second largest state in the Union, only surpassed in size by the state of Alaska, it’s no wonder why the slogan, “Everything’s bigger in Texas” came to be. In fact, if you were to pick up Texas and lay it on top of the Northeastern coast of the United States, most of it would fit inside of Texas – as well as parts of Pennsylvania and Canada.
The sheer enormity of the geographic size of the state isn’t the only thing that’s big. Here, the cows are immense, the plains are gigantic and the people are enormously friendly.
Experience Diversity in Texas
If there’s anything that in Texas that is larger than its geographic size and the pride of Texans, it’s the culture of the state. In a space that is so large, you can bet that there is a whole lot of diversity. Want to explore towns that look like they were the setting for old Clint Eastwood movies? Texas has them! Interested in seeing skyscrapers, touring museums and enjoying the amazing gastronomy those big cities are so famous for? Yep, Texas has that, too. Is a peaceful stroll along a tranquil beach sound like it’s up your alley? Or, perhaps you’d love to check out a location that prides itself on being weird (and has a capital building that is larger than the US capital building – and is pink!) You guessed it; Texas has these things to.
Texas has a diverse, bold, dynamic, yet unified culture, which is just one of the many things that make this state so unique; and is just another reason why Texans are so proud of their home.
If you’re planning a visit to this immense state and you’re wondering how to spend your time, here’s a look at some of the amazing places that are totally worth checking out.
- The Cities – Texas is home to five big states: Austin (the capital), Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio and El Paso. Each of these cities has something totally unique to offer and is absolutely worth exploring. For example, if live floating on a river by day and listening to live music by night is your cup of tea, head to Austin. If you want to experience history, head to San Antonio to stroll along the iconic River Walk and tour the Alamo.
- Hill Country – Head to the heart of Texas and you’ll be in Hill Country. To many, this is the most beautiful part of the state. Lazy rivers, canyons made of limestone, crystal clear lakes and a thriving German immigrant population are what make Hill Country so special.
- The Gulf Coast – You can even experience a tropical getaway in Texas. The Gulf Coast is home to beautiful beaches, renowned resorts and a laid-back and relaxed way of life.
Large in size, personality and culture; Texas is truly a special place and IPro is glad to make it our home.
