Texas, the second largest state in the USA, lies between Mexico, the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and the southern states of New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. The ranching capital of America is a land of contrasts, from the desert ranches to the dazzling lights of large cities like Dallas, Houston and Austin, the soaring mountains of the Panhandle to the national forests to the south.

Things to do in Texas

The varied landscapes of Texas, from the peaks of the Davis Mountains to the Piney Woods forests to the east, make for fantastic pony trekking and hiking holidays. Horses play a large role in Texan life, and holidays to Texas are a fantastic way to see the states’ finest sights. There are countless natural gems to discover, and the wildlife is surprisingly diverse, especially in the more unspoilt wildernesses. Hiking and biking trails are certainly not in short supply throughout the state. Fishing on the Blanco River is a spectacular way to spend a little time during your holidays to Texas for example.

With over 350 miles of coastline along the Gulf of Mexico, beach tourism in Texas thrives as a fantastic alternative to the more famous coastlines further north. The coastline remains wonderfully natural, with magnificent opportunities to go deep sea fishing in the marine life rich waters of the Gulf of Mexico, as well as bird watching on the wetlands that line parts of the coast. Beach towns including Port Aransas, Galveston and Corpus Christi have excellent water sports facilities too.

Golf is a huge factor in Texas tourism, with excellent, open golf courses found throughout the state. Texas golf resorts are of the highest quality, wonderfully spacious and offering some exceedingly taxing golf in many destinations, but whatever you standard and taste in golf resorts, Texas will provide the perfect round.
