With such a huge area of land (Texas is larger than France) you may not be surprised that there is a huge array of sights and attractions in the state. As well as being the setting of some of the most important moments in American history, there is also plenty to see in terms of natural wonders too. But if you are planning a trip to this part of the US, you may be wondering what some of the must-visit attractions are. Well, we aim to go some way towards giving you some useful information right here in this article.
The Sixth Floor Museum, Dallas
We already mentioned huge moments of American history happening here, and you can’t get much bigger than the assassination of John F. Kennedy. For anyone who is the slightest bit interested in trying to uncover some of the mysteries, you should be able to get some (but not all) of your most burning questions answered at the Sixth Floor Museum. You will also find out more information about JFK’s life and time in office. Check out this hotel in north Dallas, Texas if you are planning on visiting here. There is plenty more to see and enjoy so it is worth spending a couple of days here.
Go back further into the past, and another of American history’s important moments took place in Texas as the Alamo. If you visit here, you will be joining more than two and a half million other visitors who want to pay tribute to the 187 American soldiers who faced over a 3,000-strong Mexican army during the Texan War of Independence.
Big Bend National Park
Moving onto natural wonders, Big Bend National Park certainly fits the bill nicely. This national park runs along the Mexican border and takes its name from the bend in the Rio Grande which it is located along. There are miles and miles of hiking trails to enjoy, so anyone who loves the great outdoors won’t be disappointed. You can also experience the park by boat, which gives you a great opportunity to spot some of the thousands of species of birds flying overhead.
River Walk, San Antonio
Though cities like Houston and Dallas may draw huge numbers, you shouldn’t miss out on a visit to San Antonio. And certainly one of the highlights of a trip over here is a walk along the river, where you will pass along some of the city’s finest shops, restaurants, hotels, and other attractions. Make sure that you take a stroll along both during the day and at night to experience the difference.
Space Centre, Houston
Finally, for anyone with even the slightest of interests in the world outside of our own, the Space Centre in Houston is the place to go. You will get some interesting insights into the world’s largest space program, as well as the chance to experience a space simulator.
As you can see, there are plenty of varied sights and attractions to enjoy while you are in Texas, and these are just a few of the most interesting and exciting.
