They say everything is bigger in Texas. And after visiting several places, I can understand why the Lone Star State is such a great travel destination. Texas is filled with breathtaking wide open countryside, important historical attractions, old western charm, beautiful cities, lots of barbecue, cattle, ranches, Southern Hospitality and so much more.

The Alamo Mission, commonly called the Alamo and originally known as the Misión San Antonio de Valero, is a historic Spanish mission and fortress compound founded in the 18th century by Roman Catholic missionaries in what is now San Antonio. It was the site of the Battle of the Alamo in 1836.

Dallas Arboretum


The pumpkin patch at the Dallas Arboretum has been named one of America’s Best Pumpkin Festivals by Fodor’s Travel and I couldn’t agree more. Every year the arboretum builds an unbelievable pumpkin village with more than 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash throughout the garden.

Not all those who wander are lost.
