Ah good old Texas… A place I really haven’t written about much yet, despite living here for a long time and exploring several parts of it. Well that changes today!

Today I’d like to give you a little taste of Texas to perhaps inspire a visit or, if you live here, to take a little Texas getaway weekend and see some new parts of the state.

There are so many great cities and towns in this big state to explore from San Antonio (where I always start when introducing my family and friends to Texas) to Dallas, Austin, Houston, Fredericksburg, Galveston, and even little Flatonia! And really, I’ve barely scratched the surface. There is so much more to see and do!

So let’s get started with 24 Photos to Inspire a Texas Getaway Weekend… Yeehaw! (oh goodness, I just said ‘yeehaw’)
