“Just outside Fredericksburg, there’s the little-known Willow City Loop that will take you on a scenic ride past beautiful Texas bluebonnets. Bring a picnic with you for the perfect romantic day out.”

“Texan summers get incredibly hot, so do as the locals do and find yourself a swimming hole. I’d recommend Jacob’s Well, a natural artesian spring above Texas’ longest underwater cave system.”

“Every evening around dusk in Austin, approximately 1.5 million Mexican free-tailed bats fly out from the nooks and crannies of the Congress Avenue Bridge. They’re the largest urban bat colony in the world, and it’s absolutely amazing watching them fill the sky.”

Frequently Asked Questions

When’s the best time of year to visit Texas?

The shoulder seasons of March to May, and September to November, tend to have the most comfortable weather, and it’s also when the most rodeos and festivals take place. Summer can get really hot while in winter, in the north of the state, it has even been known to snow.

What kind of food do they eat in Texas?

Texas is well known for its vast farms which provide the state with some excellent produce and enormous quantities of meat. We recommend trying brisket (beef slowly smoked for eight hours), chicken-fried steak, pecan pie and deep fried Twinkies. Chili con carne and barbecue are on many Texan menus and you will also see Tex-Mex dishes such as enchiladas and tacos. If you’re feeling hungry, order a King Ranch casserole, which contains cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, green chillies, chicken, tomato and bell peppers.

What can tourists do in Texas?

Many ranches in Texas are open to adventurous travellers wanting to try their hand at life as a cowboy, this is generally very safe but we recommend you have comprehensive health insurance cover for your own peace of mind. You can also try floating down a river in a rubber ring (tubing) and country-style dancing in a traditional dance hall; hiking, kayaking and rafting through the sprawling national parks is also very popular. 

With vast canyons, sprawling ranches and steaks the size of dinner plates, in Texas bigger is definitely better. Home to real life cowboys, The Lone Star State is the perfect destination for those with an adventurous side. Saddle up and start exploring.
