Holidays to Texas

Holidays to Texas

The state of Texas has a colourful history and offers a plethora of outdoor activities for young and old.

Famously the home of cowboys and barbecues, Texas is an exciting holiday destination for adventure and nature lovers. Filled with beautiful scenery, from deep pine forests and beautiful Gulf waters, to warm sandy beaches and deep canyons, a roadtrip through Texas is extremely rewarding. Luxury Texas holidays can encompass shopping and dining in cosmopolitan cites such as Dallas, staying at a working ranch, or exploring the Texan hill country. Ranch life involves horse riding, rodeos, regular cattle drives, tapping your feet to live country music, or stopping by a saloon for a cold beer and a steak dinner. Holidays to Texas also feature more laid-back options, such as tasting the local wines, relaxing in luxury spas and exploring the national parks.

Travel Tips & Advice for Texas

Texas Activities


Staying on a working ranch is often the highlight of Texas holidays, given the possibilities for outdoor pursuits. Some Dude ranches have spas and luxury massages to ease tired muscles after a busy day. Look for ranches with hot tubs, Jacuzzis, steam rooms and saunas wherever you decide to go. For a cultural experience, take trips to art galleries and museums packed with international works and displays focusing on Black heritage and cowboy culture. Austin is a great starting point.

Texas Food & Drink


This is the land where the barbecue is king and classic side dishes include potato salad, beans and coleslaw. There is also an official state dish – Chilli. The international border with Mexico has influenced cuisine and any local will tell you that the famous Tex-Mex food is definitely not the same as Mexican cooking. Fine beers are brewed in Texas but if wine is more to your taste you'll find local varieties and vintages are fast becoming frequent award winners.

Texas Attractions


The wild and vast countryside of Texas is represented by places such as Big Bend National Park, which has desert, wilderness, mountains and riverside scenery. Visit to spot deer, wild pigs (javelina) and snakes as well as many other species. The paradise for birds and twitchers, though, is Rio Grande Valley. There is a confluence of climates here – tropical, temperate, desert and coastal all meet. Excellent Reserves in the area feature egrets, parrots, and spoonbills plus many more.
