Take a break from your routine and experience the best that Texas and our neighboring states have to offer this summer.

There are countless of perfect vacation spots in Texas—go out and experience it all this summer. A world of wonderful awaits in Arlington, home to Six Flags Over Texas and Six Flags Hurricane Harbor if you want to get your splash on. Wander south to Corpus Christi and visit the Art Museum of South Texas, or explore the many places where Selena herself lived and visited. Stay in on one of Denison’s charming B&Bs for a perfect weekend getaway and take a stroll down main street to shop and eat to your heart’s content.

If you live to eat rather than eat to live, then head to El Paso for some of the best empanadas in the Lone Star State—enjoy the city’s beautiful outdoors and numerous romantic spots as well. If your ideal vacation involves discovering new things, check out some of the many museums in Houston, including The Houston Museum of Natural Science. Feel the beach calling you? Port Arthur is a great spot to swim, fish, or kayak under the sun. If you’re looking to travel a bit farther from home, say hello to some of our neighbors in Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, or Oklahoma.

Whether you’re in need of a relaxing scenic drive, stunning hiking trail, or some small-town charm this summer, you’ll be sure to find the trip you’ve been dreaming about in Texas and beyond.
