Escorted Tours through Texas

Texas is so big and diverse that it’s practically its own country. It was, in fact, a nation of its own from 1836 to 1845. The Texas landscape ranges from desert badlands and swimmable coastlines. From lush mountains to sprawling prairies. 

There is surely no shortage of Country culture here: rodeos, line-dancing and ample opportunities for an adventure by horse or mule. And then there’s the barbecue. It’s hard to find a better place on this planet for a plate of ribs or brisket (served with a heaping helping of Texas home-style side dishes). 

History buffs can travel far and wide across the Lone Star State to learn about its rich cultural legacy. San Antonio is home to the Alamo, a centuries-old Spanish mission and the site of a long, bloody battle in the early 1800s. Frontier Texas!, a bold museum in Abilene, introduces visitors to the “Wild, Wild West” using life-sized holograms.

Of course, Texas is also host to its share of arts and cultural sophistication, from the glossy urban landscapes in Dallas and Houston to the freewheeling funk of Austin. The latter city is something of an island in the Texas Hill Country. A wild and liberal city where you can expect the unexpected.

Texas Quirk

In addition to cowboys and sprawling cities, Texas is home to some quirky attractions and spots. From the Cadillac Ranch, which boasts a sculpture made of ten Cadillacs as a monument to the “Golden Age” of the American automobile. The Lajitas Ghost Town, which has a beer-drinking goat for mayor. Then, in Paris, Texas, you’ll even find an Eiffel Tower topped with a cowboy hat. 

No other state can boast the musical flavour and flair of Texas. Home to the Austin City Limits Music Festival and South by Southwest (among many other events). The Lone Star State’s contributions to music, genres, and influence – is unparalleled.
