11 Things Longtime Texans Wish They Could Tell Newcomers
We do things differently here in Texas. As a result, transplants (people who move here from out-of-state) have a hard time understanding our ways and end up sticking out like a sore thumb. If only we could tell every newcomer these 11 things, I’m sure the state would run much smoother.
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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
We can’t hide how proud we are to be Texans. Check out this article for more reasons why our state is the best.

She attended college in the Houston area and changed her major twice (psychology, computer science, and finally criminal justice) before taking a leap of faith and dropping out to pursue a career in freelance writing.
Today, Katie writes for the Texas and Arizona pages of OnlyInYourState.com and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on the sofa with a hot cup of coffee, watching a crime TV show or scary movie.
