What are some unique things you can only find in Texas?

More people move to Texas than any other state in the country, and I mean, why wouldn’t they?? Between our awe-inspiring and magical nature spots to the incredibly low cost of living, plus the friendliest people in the universe, we don’t know why you wouldn’t want to move to Texas immediately! If you have a friend or family member from out of state who’s thinking about living in Texas, just show them this list and they won’t have to think twice about where to live. Some of the best things and most unique things you can only find in Texas include our size. We have over 70,000 miles of highway in our state, which means plenty of road trips to take. We also have six of the country’s Top 20 biggest cities! Bigger cities means more fun, we say. We also have some of the most unique and wondrous national parks in the country, including places like Big Bend National Park and Guadalupe Mountains National Park.

Our food is a huge point of pride in here in Texas, and we reckon to say that we have the best barbecue in the world… it’s something you can only find in Texas! Oh, and our chili, chicken fried steak, queso, and tacos are truly something to write home about.
