The Vastness of Texas

Why not make the great state of Texas your next travel destination? The intriguing mystery of Texas’s culture with its sprawling cities and wide prairies are sure to spark your imagination. You can explore the Alamo in San Antonio, take a stroll at leisure along the blocks of Austin’s vibrant 6th Street or enjoy relaxation on the beaches of Galveston. You can even travel to the stars by visiting the Houston Space Center.

The history of this state is a bit different than others, being the only state in the union that has served under six different flags including France, Mexico, Spain, the Republic of Texas, the Confederacy and the United States. Even though the Native Americans were first to live here, the Europeans claimed this state as their own with tales of silver and gold filling their heads. Included in the great tourist spots to visit are the Spanish missions. Spain was in the middle of becoming colonized when Mexico won its independence from Spain, which then changed everything. Texas wound up getting its own independence with the help of Sam Houston.
“Remember the Alamo” is commonly heard, and besides visiting the Alamo you can also do some sightseeing at the San Jacinto Monument and Museum. This area is one of the most revered parts of Texas because it is where they gained their independence. You should also visit the Texas State Capitol which was finished in 1888. It was in 1901 when oil was found and the true potential of Texas was realized. The conquistadors had been searching for the wrong type of wealth in the state.
One of the great cities of Texas, San Antonio’s Institute of Texan cultures boasts 26 different ethnic and cultural groups. Don’t forget about all of the Texas traditions, celebrated by their festivals, museums and events. Honky tonk music was also born in Texas, and was a way of drinking, dancing and socializing.
Texas should certainly be top priority on your list when you want to see America with its wide open spaces, natural beauty, huge cities and loads of attractions. It is one of the most popular states to visits and boasts many large cities such as Austin, San Antonio, Houston, El Paso and Dallas. Every city has something unique to offer you, including the Dallas Museum of Art and the Houston Grand Opera.
Texas also boasts many national parks such as the Big Bend National Park, the Amistad National Recreation Area on the border of the U.S. and Mexico and the Chamizal National Memorial, commemorating the Chamizal Treaty of 1963. You can also take in the beauty of this state by visiting one of its many state parks.

Texas, second only in size to Alaska, is a vast state with much to offer. You are sure to enjoy an exciting and enriched vacation when your next vacation includes visiting this great state.
