A Few Reasons People Love Visiting Texas

The state of Texas has been home to Americans since the early years of our nation. People have flooded the state and have established form roots, making it one of the most attractive states for tourists in the nation. Many people choose to experience the life of the wild west by day and stay in one of Texas's many five star hotels by night, such as the Crown Plaza Suites in Houston, which even offers a jacuzzi.

Main Attractions

National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame

Women have always been fundamental to the development of American history. This has been particularly true in the era of the cowboy. Texas has a rich history of women who represented the spirit of the American dream that many of us appreciate about our ancestors. The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame in Fort Worth honors these heroines so that they will not be lost to history. Their archives feature writers, painters, entertainers, and even members of the United States Supreme Court. The people of Fort Worth stand as a representation of the progress humanity has made, treating women has equal contributors to the growth of western culture.

The NASA Space Center

Contemporary society has elevated to a point far beyond what any of our ancestors ever even dreamed. We walk on the atmosphere of our moon and traverse the bounds of deep space. We can plant robots on the atmosphere of Mars. This remarkable progression is demonstrated for the public at the NASA Space Center in Houston. There are displays of shuttles and remnants of previous space explorations. There is even an interactive presentation that gives people a bit of insight into the life of the deployed astronaut. If that is not enough to satisfy you, you can even have lunch with an astronaut.

The Big Bend National Park

Those who have a thirst for nature will be captivated by the Big Bend National Park. It has 150 miles of scenic trails, which you will be able to explore as you as you backpack across the desert. With hundreds of unique species of animals and a delightful array of geological phenomenon, there is enough natural beauty to consume an entire lifetime. That is why many people opt to say overnight at one of the camping sites.

Take in a Dallas Cowboys game at AT&T Stadium

The Cowboys are the beloved team of the city of Dallas, receiving a deeply seated devotion from millions of viewers across the state. Whether in seasons of turmoil and loss or during great victories, the people of Dallas have always remained committed to their Cowboys. Visit a game and hear the roaring crowds and capture a wave of excitement. Be part of the long tradition of enjoying Cowboys games. Many people will get creative and hold up a clever sign to be featured on national television.

Weather

Texas can get very hot in the summer months, often passing the 90°F mark. Many people choose to visit in the Fall or in the Spring when it cools down a bit. If you do not like rain, visit in January, February, April or November (which are the months that precipitation averages around just 2 inches).

How To Get Around

It depends on where you go. But most tourists choose to rent a car or to hire a private car. Others (particularly in the bigger cities) will rely on the well-developed transportation systems. Uber is also available and affordable throughout most of the state.

                                                            Four girlfriends and myself from the 'class of 1957' get together annually for a time of 'catching up' and refreshment. The Hill house in Austin, Texas was our meeting place for 2016 as we gathered to attend the Franklin Graham "Pray for America Rally" at the Capital. From the moment we pulled on property, our breath was taken away with the serenity, beauty, and privacy of the property. The Hill house was everything, and more, than anything we had anticipated. We were 'right at home' and our host gave us a welcome like that of family. As we approached the house, crossing a little bridge with water running across, we knew we were in for a treat. That same little creek afforded us a beautiful waterfall that was enjoyed from the deck behind the house with a continual song of rushing waters. The house and grounds were immaculate and the beds were wonderful. The kitchen was supplied with necessities... ready to walk in and prepare meals. Farm animals were out front grazing on property that was manicured picture perfect. Just down the road was the famous "Salt Lick" Barbecue restaurant and there was no disappointment there. Umh..... good! A little piece of serenity from the busy world of Austin made our visit one we will never forget. We will return!

                                                            We loved this rental. It was quiet, well-equipped (loved the kayaks/canoes and hot tub) and peaceful. We stayed here with our teen son for his b-day weekend and it had everything we needed for fun and relaxation. Comfortable beds, a good set-up for cooking, watching movies and stargazing on the deck. The owner David was responsive and wonderful to work with. We live in Austin but this felt like a million miles away from the busy-ness of the city. We'll definitely be back.
