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.

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?
