San Marcos is a small Texas town with many different things to do. The San Marcos River snakes through the middle of town while the Blanco River is just outside of it. Kayakers, snorkelers, scuba divers, and swimmers all love it here. It's a great place to explore the outdoors, with many parks and hidden gems, like waterfalls and rope ...

New Braunfels is a great small Texas town. Two rivers snake through the town, making it a great place for the outdoors and for people who love water sports. The food is excellent here, the town being started by German settlers. German festivals take place in New Braunfels, and if you like German beer, you won't want to miss out.

We backpacked for about 4 days in Big Bend in October, hiking throughout the High Chisos Mountains trail system. The scenery was magnificent every step of the way. Sunset is amazing on the south rim. I can't get enough, and just thinking about it makes me want to go back again and again. We just couldn't believe how beautiful it ...

LOVE Terlingua. It is the tiniest of towns in the desert. There's not much to do here except slip over to Big Bend, but there's a great restaurant in town (La Kiva) with tons of character and once a year they have a huge internationally known Chili Cookoff. Don't miss out on the Ghost Town or the Starlight Theater while ...

Our hometown and, in our biased opinions, one of the most misunderstood cities in America. Yeah, we get that Houston may never be a great tourist destination. But it's a practically unbeatable place to live or travel for business. Amazing restaurants, great local theatre, ridiculous nightlife and actual friendly people! We're combating the cowboy-hat-wearin' horse-ridin' stereotypes from within and sticking ...

I can't even begin to describe how much I love Austin. I've lived here on and off for about 10 years (the "off" portions being involuntary). It's a great place for food, the outdoors, music, and culture, as well as families and much more. Oh, and are you a dog lover? You'll fit right in.

San Antonio, Texas is the second largest city in Texas with over one and a quarter million people. It is the seventh largest city in America. I love the city, and for a tourist there is so much to see! The Alamo, the Riverwalk, the beautiful architecture, Sea World, and the list goes on!

Fort Worth was established in the middle of the nineteenth century as an army outpost. Today it's the fifth largest city in Texas, with about three-quarters of a million people. I like Fort Worth, and would recommend a visit if you're ever in the area. I would especially visit the city's old historic stockyards.

A wonderful little town founded by German immigrants in 1846. Admiral Nimitz, the Commander of American Naval Forces in the Pacific theatre was born and raised in this town.
