It is no wonder Texans are known for their hospitality; their state’s name is derived from a Hasinai Indian word, tejas, meaning allies or friends. From “Big D” (Dallas) in the north to “SA-Town” (San Antonio) in the south; from the wildflowers and wineries of Hill Country to the hardwood forests and oil rigs of Piney Woods; from birdwatching on the Gulf Coast to stargazing in the Panhandle… Texas is as varied as it is vast. This is the place where Dr Pepper and Jalapeno Pepper Jelly were invented; the home of the world’s largest rose garden at Tyler and the world’s largest inland port at Laredo; and site of the nation’s first suspension bridge and its first domed stadium. In short, Texas has something for everyone and every lifestyle.
