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 ...

It's funny to write just an overall review of Austin. It's one of those city with it's own living personality, and like all things with character, there is real depth and complexities to this place. You really can't get a good feel for the place without staying a while. If you're looking for a unique experience, you need to go ...

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 ...

If Austin is too cerebral for you, there's always San Marcos where it's practically Spring Break year round in the rowdy college town. The local Edward's Aquifer spring feeds the San Marcos River a continuous supply of the clearest waters in the state and is extremely popular for canoeing, tubbing and rafting (thus providing the setting for Spring Break like ...

Denton, Texas is a college party town in North Texas. The University of North Texas has one of the best music programs in the country and so lots of musicians and artist types have gravitated here over the years. Fry Street used to be party central but the Square has recently claimed that spot due to the forced closing of ...

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 ...

Arguably the best part of Texas. As known as the Live Music Capital of the World and unofficial the foodie heartland of Texas. Austin has fantastic museums, great music/food scene, no attitude, lots of tiny bats, a variety of outdoor activities and that is just the half of it. Since I tend to err on the food end of things ...

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

I loved Galveston Island. It is so beautiful that it takes your breath away. I remember the seafood restaurants there. The blue crabs were delicious. A friend of mine let me have his Corvette for 3 months and I didn't know that that car had two systems to it and my son hit one switch as I was driving and ...

I love Texas! From the mountains to the Gulf of Mexico, the cactus covered land to the the forests of East Texas. You can't go wrong no matter where you go!

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.

El Paso is the sixth largest city in Texas, with an estimated population of just over six-hundred and fifty thousand people. It is a very interesting town, with a lot of historical sites.
