The Most Ridiculous Questions Tourists Have Ever Asked About Texas

When tourists in the Lone Star State interact with us natives, one of three things might happen. Either they’ll seem genuinely interested (and maybe use “y’all” a few too many times to try and fit in), start talking really slow because they assume you’re stupid, or ask you a bunch of stereotypical questions to get under your skin. If you’ve encountered someone from out-of-state, chances are you’ve heard these 11 questions one too many times by now.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
