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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
