Texas comes equipped with a rugged reputation and an influential culture. There are many reasons to love the second largest state in the nation, but here are just a few.
Texas is known for its large portions, eating challenges and some of the spiciest flavors in the country. When visiting, you can be sure to get your fair share of Tex-Mex, hot sauce and (who could forget) ribs.
Chili is one of the state’s most loved dishes. Like other foods in the Tex-Mex category, a recipe true to this state would taste a lot like the perfect marriage between the flavors of both Texas and Mexico. The Huffington Post has a ranking of the 6 Best Places to Get Chili in the U.S., and this state graces the list twice.
You can’t make anything a Tex-Mex dish without hot sauce though. Fortunately, it comes by the gallon here. (You can honestly buy it by the gallon.) Although Texas Pete
wasn’t created here, there’s a reason why it got its name. Texans won’t dare go near a Mexican dish, or any other form of sustenance for that matter, without one of their favorite nose burning sauces. Tears of Joy
and the classic Tabasco
have all become the go-tos for these locals
Want something else to throw the fiery red liquid on? Another Texas staple are ribs. People say this state is home to the original baby back, and you can see why. Thanks to the perfect stylized cooking process that provides an initially sweet taste with a smooth after-kick and the most melt-in-your-mouth meat, most are willing to give the title of ‘best pork’ to the Lone Star state. Wide Open Country even has a definitive list of the must-eat BBQ joints
One thing this state isn’t lacking is entertainment. Throughout the year, Texas opens its doors to house some of the best festivals in the country. Both residents and tourists come to experience everything from musical acts to wildlife rallies.
For 10 days in March, South by Southwest
is up and running to bring attendees live music, great food, educational guest speakers, visual artists and much more. The Austin event has come a long way since its inception in 1987. Now, more than 200,000 people make an appearance each year, and it’s considered one of the largest musical festivals in the country.
One of the state's other large get-togethers is the State Fair of Texas
. Located in Dallas, this time-honored tradition is the home to Big Tex, the fair mascot. The 55-foot statue encourages visitors to participate in activities like the Texas Skyway, auto show and annual Red River Rivalry game.
If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can travel to Sweetwater to take part in the world's largest rattlesnake roundup
. This is considered one of the most popular rustic events in the state. You can do everything from riding carnival rides and camping to hangin’ with the bikers and rounding up those poisonous serpents.
remains in high regard as one of the most visited destinations in Texas. The famous 1836 battle between the Mexican Army and Texan Army has left this site a common gathering place for storytelling and historic inquisition. Though many educators aren’t positive about detailed events that occurred during the 13 day quarrel, this landmark stands as a tribute and reminder of Texan independence.
Speaking of the Alamo, Sam Houston was the man responsible for eventually bringing the independence of Texas to fruition. Considered the father of the state, he was a well-recognized politician, and his home just so happens to rest deep in the heart of Huntsville. You can visit the Woodlands
to get a glimpse into how he lived during his time and discover different historical facts about his time in office.
The Great Outdoors
Located just outside Houston, Buffalo Bayou is a major park in Katy, Texas. It stretches over 10 miles with walking trails, family areas and endless scenery. The park offers numerous events throughout the year and encourages every age to participate in the fun. You can also take a boat tour of the area or register for the annual marathon.
If you’re looking for something a bit less reserved, South Padre Island
is the number one beach destination in the state. With country clubs, water sports and sandy beaches resting along the Gulf of Mexico, families travel here throughout the year for a quick trip to the ocean side. It’s also a hot spot for spring breakers.
Between A&M football, annual rodeos and river floats, every city has something to offer. We’ll just wish you luck when deciding which one to visit first.
Locals in Austin
recommend experiencing the food truck scene
or going down to 2nd street and catching a show at Esther's Follies
, while people from Dallas
know the only way to experience Texas is by cheering on the Cowboys
at AT&T Stadium
. The San Antonio Spurs
put up a good fight when arguing their city need be a destination. And the most populated city of Houston
says the Lyndon B. Johnson SPace Center
is a must on the attraction list.
Where bigger is better and cowboy boots are a plenty, this 268,820 square mile state is true to itself. No other place can match its culture and hard-wired loyalty instilled within its inhabitants. Locals know that mosquitoes may come and go, but Whataburger is always open at 3 a.m.
