With cultural and geographic properties of both the South and the Southwest, Texas has long been an area — and a state of mind — that defies categorization. Texas is traditional and progressive; it's home to vast rural spaces and densely populated cities like Dallas, Houston and San Antonio; and its diverse landscape changes from the pine woods of the east to the beaches of the Gulf Coast to the prairie and desert of the west. Texas is larger than any European country and could take a lifetime to understand. The traveler with enough time — and a reliable car — can get a good taste of the state's urban and rural charms if given a week or two. 

Dallas-Fort Worth's art scene is world-class and the city's downtown cultural district is a must-visit. The legendary Austin music culture thrives on a large scale during its renowned annual music festivals. In San Antonio, the Alamo stands as icon of Texas' recalcitrant spirit, and the city's bustling River Walk lines the Rio Grande with shops, hotels and restaurants. For a taste of Texas' natural grandeur, visit Big Bend National Park in the southwest, where desert flora and fauna flourish under the sun. Houston, the state's largest city, sprawls in the southeast, and its more cosmopolitan attractions are blended with distinctly Texan ones, like the world's largest rodeo and a plethora of Tex-Mex and steakhouse venues.
