Whether you are planning to move to Texas or just go there on a vacation, you are probably wondering what are some of the most exciting Texas cities every thrill-seeker will love. Well, you have come to the right place. Today we will share with you some great Texas cities where you can admire nature, shop ’till you drop, try out some new experiences, practice your Spanish, and many things more. All you have to do is make sure you have a bag full of essentials, some free time, and some money. That is all! So, let’s get started. Here are some Texas cities you should definitely put on your bucket list this year.
When people think about Texas, the first things that come to their minds are usually cowboys, cattle, big trucks, and big hairstyles. But, there’s so much more to Texas than that! For instance, there is a beach in the city of Galveston. This is definitely one of the most exciting Texas cities every thrill-seeker will love, especially if that thrill-seeker is into water activities. Here, you can swim, surf, play water sports, bask in the sun, fish, and so much more.
If you plan on vacationing in Galveston, let us warn you on time – hotels here sell out quickly (as residents from the entire Texas also like vacationing here). So, one of the things you will have to do before getting on the plane to Galveston is make reservations. Don’t leave anything to the case – if you do, you may end up without accommodation.
Another city that defies all the Texas stereotypes just has to be Austin. This is a young, hip, and energetic city full of people from all walks of life. Should you decide to move here, your first neighbors will be people from an entirely different culture, people who will share their traditional food with you, and people who will teach you their language and customs. So, if this is something you were seeking for a long time, just move to Texas. And, don’t worry about moving and living here. When it comes to moving, you can find the best fit quickly, that is, you can find professional movers in Austin to help you move in no time.
But, if you just plan on staying here for a couple of days, that is great too! In Austin you can be a part of some of the best music festivals in the world, learn how to make craft beer (or just drink it), shop at the most charming little stores or different food markets, have fun at improv comedy shows and so much more.
The city of El Paso is located right at the U.S./Mexico border, so, you don’t need us to tell you that a trip to this city is like a trip to the good Old Southwest. Here you can enjoy the Tex-Mex style of pretty much everything – clothing, food, drinks, parties, shops, golfing, etc.
Moreover, your trip to El Paso would not be complete if you don’t visit its great outdoors. Prepare your car for a road trip (or just rent one) and be sure to visit Franklin Mountains State Park, Hueco Tanks State Park, and El Paso Mission Trail. And, when you are done exploring, put on your party outfit and go downtown. The residents will welcome you with smiles, music, and tons of food and drinks.
Just like Austin, Houston is a huge and populous city. And, just like Austin, Houston is full of ex-pats! People move here for many reasons – a good economy, plenty of job openings, affordable costs of living, great real estate options, and plenty of things to do on those days off. So, if this is something you need to do, just move here. Professional movers such as those from evolutionmoving.com can give you any moving advice you may need and local real estate agents can help you find your new Texas home in no time. All you will have to do is seek their help, and of course, find a job.
But, if you just wish to visit Austin, you will not make a mistake. Houston treats its visitors well. Throughout the year, you can be a part of one of many festivals, rodeos, parades, open parties, and sporting venues. Don’t stop there, during the weekend, visit the Space Center in Houston, hang out at Market Square Park, and shop for authentic Western wear. You can also join some organized tour groups and let the guides and other visitors tell you why Houston is one of the most exciting Texas cities every thrill-seeker will love.
And, speaking of the most exciting Texas cities every thrill-seeker will love, we cannot but mention the city of Amarillo. Amarillo is another city with that Old West feel. So, if this is something you want to experience, this may be the best city for it. And, besides the Old West, here is where you can see one of the biggest collections of painted Cadillacs, visit the Big Texan Steak Ranch and try the 72-ounce steak, hike to the Palo Duro Canyon State Park or go to Amarillo Botanical Gardens, American Quarter Horse Heritage Center & Museum, Amarillo Zoo, etc.
Let us not forget – before coming to Amarillo, or to any other previously mentioned cities, be sure to get the best travel insurance. This one just goes without saying, but still, many people forget it. Travel insurance is there to help you out if anything bad happens during your trip and of course, it is there to give you a peace of mind. Thus, don’t forget to get it.
As you have seen, there are many exciting Texas cities every thrill-seeker will love. We mentioned just a few of them but, be sure there are many more. For instance, if you have some more free time, consider visiting Corpus Christi, San Angelo, Forth Worth, Dallas, and San Antonio.
