Have you ever wanted to explore the southern states of America? Well, Texas would be a great place to start.
A lot of people think that Texas is just a place where people say Y’all, wear cowboy hats and boots and perhaps herd cattle. Well, that’s certainly true, but as you’re about to discover, there’s a lot more to the beautiful state of Texas for those who are eager to explore.
Mudding is great fun, and all you need for it is a quad bike and a dirt track. You’ll come back covered from the top of your head to the tip of your toes in mud, and you’ll love every minute of it. In Texas, this isn’t a sport so much as a fun pastime, and if you head out into the rural areas, you’ll find plenty of places to try this awesome activity. There are even special tracks where you can let the mud really fly.
Visit The Crown Jewel
The best place to visit in Texas by far has got to be the capital city of Houston. A word to the wise though, if you’re driving around don’t indicate. Locals from Houston will tell you that indicating is a sign of weakness and typically tourist. Joking aside there is so much to do here it’s hard to name all the top places in Houston. But, if you’re travelling with kids, you’ll definitely want to check out the Wet’n’Wild Splash Town. It’s a great amusement park filled with thrill rides for the whole family to enjoy.
Explore The Wildlife
Outside of the main cities, you’ll have plenty of chances to see beautiful, exotic wildlife. There’s nature parks, aquariums and you’ll even see some creatures as you drive your car down the winding roads. Of course, the place to start would be Houston Zoo. There you will find a Zoofari. That’s right, you don’t have to go to Africa to see lions and rhinoceros up close. Head into the heart of Texas, and you’ll be able to go off road in the habitat of these animals.
Catch A Game
Texans love their football, and there’s no better evidence of this than the Friday night games every week through football season. You should be able to get tickets, even if you just show up on the night of the game and if you do you’ll be in for a real treat. The feeling of being part of such a passionate crowd watching a game like this is nothing short of euphoric, and you’ll probably love every moment of it.
Good People, Good Food
Finally, you might have thought you’d experienced true American food. But you haven’t until you sit down in a steak house. Get ready for meat that fills the whole plate, spicy sauces like nothing you’ve ever tried and your choice of sides as big as a regular meal. If you want to experience true American cuisine, there’s no better state to do it.
So, saddle up, leave your worries behind and take a trip down south to find out why America is still great.
