Strange Towns In Texas

June 18, 2021

Where are some weird places in Texas? 

Texas is a big state with plenty of weird to go around. For example, Marfa, Texas, is a small town known for one thing: the Marfa Lights, an unexplained phenomenon that occurs so often that they’ve even got a viewing platform up for them now. There are also weird spots like the Cathedral of Junk, in Austin, which is… well, exactly what it sounds like, and Cadillac Ranch off the I-40 outside Amarillo is definitely weird and worth a look. You could also kill an afternoon checking out Stonehenge II, a life-size replica of the strange monument on Easter Island right here in the Lone Star State. Trust us… if you know where to look, you’ll find weird all over the place. This article details a few more strange places throughout Texas.  

 What are some totally funny town names in Texas?  

Texas is huge, which means it’s bound to have some truly bizarre town names from place to place. There are literally too many to list here, but some of our favorites include such places as Bug Tussle, Bigfoot, Cool, Frognot, Hogeye, Jot ‘em Down, Nameless, Noodle… we could seriously go on forever. What about gems like Oatmeal, Pflugerville, Rainbow, Point Blank, and Sour Lake? For real, we could just keep going, but we won’t bore you too much!  

 Where are the most unique places in Texas?  

Texas is a strange and interesting place if you know what to look for. We’ve got our share of awesome natural beauty, weird roadside attractions, allegedly haunted places, seemingly endless rivers, and so much more. Some of the truly unique places that you’ll find here and nowhere else are man-made, too, like the legendary Big Texan steakhouse in Amarillo, which is famous for its “free” 72-ounce steak (as long as you eat it, and all the fixings it comes with, in an hour or less), and in Houston, you’ll find a museum of human body parts (seriously). Supposedly, there’s a space alien buried in Aurora, Texas, and you can find a creepy haunted grove in Jefferson.
