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!

Corpus Christi, Texas was founded as a trading post in 1839, and it has a population now of just under a half million people. I loved the city, especially it's quaint Irishtown, where they have moved many of the old majestic houses built in the 19th or early 20th century. I have been to Corpus on three occasions, and I ...

Marfa is an amazing city. I've seen nothing like it. It's a very small town. You don't really need a car to get around it, just a bike or your feet. For such a small town, there's so much to do with lots of shops, places to eat, and great scenery. It's a great central location too for the major ...

If it wasn't for the friendly Texans (I'm excluding the drug pushers at the Greyhound Bus Station), downtown Dallas could be your typical anonymous metropolis. Thankfully, with attractions like Gilley's (a good place to get yer two step on) and Deep Ellum (for those more into alt-country or anything other than the mainstream), Dallas's ambitious skyline, jutting up from the ...

Small town with a few antiques shops but not a lot. A few cafes. The courthouse is spectacular and some interesting architecture.

Down by the banks of the Colorado River in Bastrop County, you'll find typical small town Texas with an atypical Hollywood background. Tiny Smithville (Pop. 3,817), has seen more than it's fare share of tinseltown fare. Fans of Terrence Malick will well know that his far reaching slice of Americana, 'The Tree of Life' was filmed here (doubling for Malick's ...

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.

Fort Worth is one of the great Texas cities. The local museums are outstanding and could rival any in NYC. It's an old cowtown. So you can find a lot of cowboy themed adventures here as well a really good steak. It's stones throw from Dallas too, but you won't need to stray far. All the fun you'll need can ...

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.
