The Lone Star State is packed with gems, from the panhandle to the coast. If you call yourself a Texas resident, consider these three ideas to elevate your living experience both now and in the future.
Stop and Smell the Flowers
Hit the road with friends or family and enjoy the floral beauty Texas offers year-round. Visit the iconic Texas bluebonnets each spring in wide open fields or backroads. Explore other natural wonders such hot springs, lakes, and other iconic stops. Scout out local biking or walking trails, visit botanical gardens, or explore the scenic route the next time you are on a drive. You never know what natural wonders Texas may be hiding both near and far from major cities. Make a day trip out of an outdoor adventure by packing a picnic basket, a portable speaker, and games!
Even if you’ve been in Texas for a while, it’s never too late to brush up on history and explore monumental sites in your region. Consider visiting The Alamo in San Antonio, the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas, or the Stockyards in Fort Worth. Check out zoos in major Texas cities, or opt for a stroll through one of the state’s many bustling downtowns or town squares. Take some time to listen to live music and even enjoy a bite out with friends. Texas residents might consider seafood Plano for an ocean-inspired date night, or a night on the town with some two-step dancing.
Sports and Outdoors
Get outside and enjoy some sunshine all year round in Texas, whether at a sporting event or enjoying the beauty of nature. Consider purchasing tickets for upcoming games at one of Texas’s many colleges and universities or attend a pro-level game to cheer on the Cowboys, Stars, Mavericks, and other state teams.
Have fun exploring the Lone Star State!
