What are some fun things to do in Texas?
Texas is a humongous state with tons of ways to occupy your time! There are hundreds – if not thousands – of different things you can do, including (but not limited to) hiking, hunting, fishing, camping, and rock climbing (if you’re the outdoorsy type). If you’re more of an indoors kind of person, no worries – pay a visit to any one of the museums in the Lone Star state, including The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, The Alamo in San Antonio, and so many more. No matter what it is that you like to do, we’re certain you’ll find something in Texas to fall in love with.
Where are some hidden gems in Texas?
There are a bunch of underrated hidden gems in the Lone Star state! Check out the San Felipe Springs near Del Rio, or kill some time at Copper Breaks State Park near Quanah. For a more exhaustive list of our favorite picks for best hidden gems in Texas, check this article out. We’re certain you’ll find something to do that’s a bit off the beaten path.
What are some must-visit places in Texas?
Where to begin? You can walk the San Antonio River Walk, pay a visit to the famous Cadillac Ranch, or try to eat a 72 ounce (four and a half POUNDS) steak at Amarillo’s legendary Big Texas steakhouse. Deep Ellum in Dallas is a fabulous arts and entertainment district. We supposed “must visit” is definitely subjective, but we’re sure you’ll create memories in Texas that you’ll never forget no matter what you choose to do.
