This Is The Best View In Texas And It’s Absolutely Breathtaking

…Okay, that might be a heavy statement considering how gorgeous Texas is, but this is definitely a view you’ve probably never seen before. If you ride the elevator on the San Jacinto monument up to the very top (almost 500 feet!), you’ll have the opportunity to gaze out at a stunning panoramic view of the former battleground of one of the most legendary fights our state has ever seen. It’s a truly amazing experience for history buffs and everyone else alike, and although there are plenty of arguably “prettier” views in the state, this one holds a special meaning that amplifies its beauty tenfold.
