Make a holiday rental home or property in Texas your home away from home

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.

Places to visit on holiday in Texas

Austin, the capital of Texas, is a musical hotspot. Texas tourism thrives in Austin, whose vibrant music scene, which stems from the great number of venues, the most of any American city, attracts music lovers from around the world.

The prairies of the Panhandle are idea for Texas golf resorts. There are some 75 Texas golf resorts in the Panhandle, and if you would like a few days away from the fairway, there is a great deal of activity to enjoy.

Weather in Texas

Texas is a warm destination throughout the year. The hottest months, when daily peak temperatures regularly reach into the mid 30’s (˚C), fall between June and September, which are the best months to visit the Lone Star State. Winter, which falls between November and February, is a magnificent period to visit golf resorts in Texas, as daily temperatures stay at around 15-20˚C.

Travel to Texas

British Airways provides cheap, direct flights to the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW). Hire car facilities are in abundance from the airport, and the use of a hire car is strongly recommended whilst staying in Texas accommodation.
