Texas might be the most famous American state, with a rugged and proud people. The Lone Star State is described as a place you don’t mess with, where everything’s bigger, and is famous for cowboys, open plains and remembering The Alamo.

    Of course, it’s not all 6-shooters and Stetsons. The bigger cities like Houston, San Antonio, Dallas and Austin are increasingly cosmopolitan places. Like the state itself, each has its own unique quirks and culture. The dining scene across the state really stands out, but be sure to bring a healthy appetite – after all, everything’s bigger in Texas!
