“Texas is a state of mind. Texas is an obsession. Above all, Texas is a nation in every sense of the word.”
– John Steinbeck
When you think of the Alamo, Rodeos, BBQs and Cowboys, Texas comes to mind. It is the second largest state in the U.S. – Alaska is the largest and California is the most populous. Picturesque mountains, lakes, wide open plains, sandy beaches, historic attractions, world-class sporting events, fabulous art and museums, vibrant music and entertainment, exciting water sports, rodeos and fun outdoor activities only begin to describe what makes Texas such a popular destination.
