7 Small Towns In Texas That Are Full Of Charm And Perfect For A Weekend Escape
Texas is nearly 900 miles across, yet only a handful of cities are responsible for the majority of our population. As a result, many people are led to believe the rest of the state is nothing but wide-open prairies (and maybe a few tumbleweeds). That couldn’t be further from the truth – in between the hustle and bustle of big city life lies a plethora of small towns filled with Southern charm. Hiding everywhere from the mountainous desert out west to the sprawling Hill Country landscape, here are seven of the best small towns in Texas for a weekend getaway.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
