Our Texas Travel Guides
Texas has diverse landscapes ranging from prairies, grasslands, forests, and coastlines to swamps, piney woods, rolling plains, rugged hills, and deserts. It has three of the top ten cities in the country as far as population goes. The state is the most beautiful in the springtime when the bluebonnets blanket the central prairie. Taking a drive across the state is a joy at this time. And, while you’re driving, go all the way to Big Bend National Park. It’s glorious in the spring! Check out our videos and travel guides below!
First, a little history…
Several nations have ruled the territory now known as Texas. Spain was the first European nation to rule over the territory, followed by France and then Mexico. Texas remained under Mexico’s control until it gained independence and became the Republic of Texas in 1845. This is why it is called the ‘Lone Star State.’ After its annexation by the United States, Texas was admitted to the union as the 28th state in 1845.
