Texas is ‘more than you think’. A world-class, year-round destination with the rich ranching and cowboy heritage that Texas is renowned for. There are many other attractions for visitors to enjoy including spectacular coastline, extensive national and state parks, bird-watching, golf and outstanding arts and cultural facilities. In a state this big and diverse you will find whatever you want from your Texan adventure. Think of Texas and think of the great outdoors and adventure. Go hiking and camping in the Big Bend National Park, kayaking on the Rio Grande River, horse-riding in the Hill Country or biking through the Palo Duro Canyon for an adventure of a lifetime.
If it’s a beach holiday you are after, you’ve come to the right place too. All along the 600 miles of the Texas coastline, the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico meet the mild climate of the Texas coast, making Texas' beaches among the most calming and beautiful in the nation. Or, if you prefer some retail therapy, Texas is a good value choice, with plenty of opportunities for savvy shoppers with everything from quaint local stores, outlet stores, or world-class shopping in Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Dallas.
