What are the best things about living in Texas?

The perks of living in Texas could go on and on. Texas has some of the best BBQ and Tex-Mex in the country, attracting foodies from all over the nation hoping to sample some of Texas’ delicious culinary creations. Texas is also the second largest state, and home to a very diverse landscape. Whether you’re looking for beautiful mountain views or just wanting to sink your toes in the sand and enjoy a beach day, Texas offers both.

What are the worst things about living in Texas?

Just like any state, there are highs and lows to living in it. One of Texas’ biggest strengths is also it’s biggest weakness, and that’s its sheer size. While Texas does have quite a wide array of landscapes to choose from, getting from one point to the other takes proper planning and a lot of driving. Most of the major cities are just a few hours drive apart, but if you want to go from one side of the state to the other, you’re in for a much longer road trip than you think. Texas is also extraordinarily hot in the summer, making it difficult for tourism to thrive during those sweltering summer days.

What are the most popular foods in Texas?

As the saying goes, everything is better in Texas, and that certainly covers the food. The Lone Star State is home to some of the best food in the nation, if you know where to look. BBQ is by far one of the most popular foods in Texas, and one of those foods you’ll find just about anywhere you go. And of course, we have to mention chili, the state dish of Texas. Made with no beans, this hearty dish is traditionally served without beans and a handful of corn chips. Heading a little further south, you’ll find some of the most incredible Tex-Mex cuisine you’ve ever tasted, complete with all the delicious queso you can eat.
