With 2016 drawing to a close in just a few short days, it’s about time we reflect on how many things we checked off our bucket list this year. Chances are, the number is very low if not zero. Why not start planning your 2017 trips now so that work and finances are less likely to get in the way? There are just some things you have to do as a Texan, and these are 15 of the big ones. How many will you accomplish next year?
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/
How many of these have you done? What other places are obligatory to visit if you’re a Texan?
