Culture in Texas

A whole other country

Cowboy culture

Live out your childhood fantasies from the saddle when you cross this magnificent country on horseback. Rustic resorts such as the Mayan Dude Ranch offer an authentic ranch experience; explore trails, jump aboard hayrides to rodeos, plus barbeques by the camp fire to watch cinders crackle into the night sky. 

Head over to Bandera, the ‘Cowboy Capital of the World’, to swot up on your knowledge of the Wild West. Visit the Frontier Times Museum for an eclectic exhibition of artefacts from bygone times. Here, discover not only hayrides and gunfight re-enactments; Bandera is also a popular rallying point for keen motorcyclists to ride out into the Edwards Plateau region of Texas.  

Austin music scene

A fabulous city in its own right, with its 2nd Street District known for its independent shops and restaurants, Austin is one of the leading music destinations in the USA and is styled as the “Live Music Capital of the World®”. This quirky city has grown into a premier destination for music aficionados with world-class events including the South by Southwest Music Festival – one of the most influential to be held in the USA.
