This Little Town In Texas Might Just Be The Most Unique Town In The World
Texas has its fair share of small towns, but I dare to say that none are quite as unique as this one. Wharton, with a population of just under 9,000, seems a bit out of place in some aspects but is a Texas town through-and-through in others. Between random dinosaur statues and motels with tepees instead of rooms, you may find yourself wondering where you are at times – but I can guarantee that your experience will be an unforgettable one.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
Have you ever been to Wharton? What was your experience like? Are there any other towns in Texas that don’t quite seem to fit in with the rest of the state?
