Texas Holidays

Everything's bigger here

The home of cowboys, rodeos, oil and Tex Mex, the Lone Star State offers expereinces like no other. One day you can be hiking the Lost Mine Trail or rafting through the waters in Big Bend National Park, and the next day, watching the cattle drives tgriugh The Stockyards in Fort Worth or visiting one of th emany art galleries in Dallas. Live music runs through the veins here and the largest Honky Tonk in the world, Bill Bob's Texas in Fort Worth, is not to be missed. Around every corner is a new experience in Texas and a multi centre holiday is the perfect way to see it all.

Texan landscapes evolve from desert plains and ranches to rolling hills and soaring cities, while the state bursts with heritage sites and historical monuments that offer a glimpse into Texas' past. Discover the charms of San Antonio, and head to Houston for an outer space experience like no other. Or, sign up for horseback riding across the fields before tucking into some traditional Texan cuisine. You won't know what to tick off your list first.

After touring Texas, head to Louisiana to explore the Mississippi River, or swap the ranches for New York's bustling streets and Central Park for something completely different.

Top Tips from our Experts

Matthew

Destination Specialist

"Most cities are only a short drive away and each have their own identity, so try and visit as much as you can. Out of the main cities you can experience the old Texas and a stay on a ranch is a great way to end your holiday and be a cowboy for the day"
