Lose yourself in the Lone Star State!

Texas may not be on the list of states that you are desperate to visit, but perhaps it should be. After all, there’s a lot more to this location than meets the eye. We often see Texas as merely a place where people wear Stetsons and cowboy boots and it’s true you’ll still see a lot of this fashion style around. But there’s so much more than that to discover and explore. If you don’t believe this, it might be time you took a trip there yourself. But here is just a taste of what Texas has to offer curious travelers.

Incredible Trips To The Past And Future

One of the best things about Texas is the incredible number of museums and historical locations you can explore. You’ll find locations that were pivotal to the civil war, political landmarks. Of course, the best one is definitely the Space Center in Houston. Here you’ll discover the journey we took to get a man to land on the moon. You’ll find it was a rocky road and you will even be able to see some of the techs used to do it including a viewing of the full monitoring center. There are interactive experiences here too. If you’re truly fascinated with this topic, it’s well worth getting a backstage path which will tell you not just about the past, but give a glimpse at the startling future of space travel.

Stunning Environments

You might have already explored the Grand Canyon, but Texas has Palo Duro Canyon, the second largest in the world. Perhaps you haven’t heard of this location at all, but we promise, it is certainly worth the trip. You’ll find postcard picturesque scenes here with stone monuments rising up through the clouds. It’s a truly incredible place to visit and over 1000 miles long. If you want to take a camping vacation in the wilderness next year, this location should be hot on your list. It’s not as popular as other major national parks and landmarks, and that means you can look forward to a quieter more peaceful experience.

Great Hotels

Of course, if you don’t want to rough it, you’ll need to book a hotel during your stay in Texas. You’ll be pleased to hear that there some great choices. When you stay somewhere like New York or Florida, you’ll have to pay a fortune to lavish in luxury at a hotel. That’s not the case here and if you book a hotel near Fort Hood, Texas you’ll be able to relax in king size beds, take a dip in an Olympic pool or even book a trip to the spa. It’s the perfect way to unwind away from the pressures of the urban world.

Fantastic Entertainment

Finally, don’t miss the chance to enjoy some true Texan traditions at Fort Worth Stockyards Here you’ll find everything from a real rodeo to shootout shows. It’s a lot like taking a trip back to the times of the wild wild west, and there’s no experience quite like it anywhere else in America.

We hope you see now that a trip to the Lonestar State should definitely be on your to-do list.
