Holidays to Texas

It’s true: everything is bigger in Texas. It’s a big state, the biggest of all 50 in fact, and it’s perfect for any trip, large or small. 

From the giant portion sizes to their pickup trucks, Texas know how to do things. And with thousands of kilometres of rugged, gorgeous terrain to explore as well as magnificent cities, you can have any kind of holiday in Texas. Explore desert badlands and swimmable coastlines to lush mountains and sprawling prairies. Whatever you get up to, you’ll need your camera at the ready. 

There’s no shortage of country culture: there’s line dancing, rodeos, and ample opportunities for an adventure by horse or mule. And then there’s the Barbecue. It’s hard to find a better place on this planet for a plate of ribs or brisket (served with a heaping helping of Texas home-style side dishes). The legendary Franklin Barbecue in Austin can boast all-day waits, and let us tell you; it’s worth it.

Top Itineraries Featuring Texas

Top 5 Things To Do in Texas

Padre Islands National Seashore - Windswept dunes waving with the coastal grasses set the scent on this barrier island that runs 182 kilometres along the Gulf of Mexico coast. The gentle surf makes this a prime spot for swimming or saltwater fishing.
San Antonio River Walk - Running so close to the gentle San Antonio River you feel you could step right into it. The walk is filled with restaurants offering festive outdoor eating, music, shops, festivals and shows. You’ll want to see every kilometre.
Guadalupe Mountains National Park - This honey-coloured ridge formed 250 million years ago and is actually a rare fossil reef. Explore its remote beauty through backcountry camping and hiking or get out your binoculars, as the birding is great here.
The Alamo - Site of the famous battle of the Texas Revolution and the most visited landmark in Texas, this mission and its grounds are accessible through multiple tours, and interactive exhibits and history talks.
Space Centre Houston - The out-of-this-world educational complex explores the space flight programme through ever-changing exhibits, 400 artefacts (including the world’s largest collection of lunar rocks) and exceptional tours, such as Level 9, which takes you behind-the-scenes of NASA
