Texas is the southernmost state of the USA and one of the most colorful in the whole country. For almost all travelers, it is known for the ardent nature of the Wild West, cowboys, ranches and westerns. I also liked this place by the hospitality of the locals, daily music festivals, amazing barbecue and beautiful sunset. The sun is over your head round the clock, but there are also enough ponds that help to escape from the heat. In addition, Texas is famous for its border with Mexico, and indeed a special history of their relations, so the mix of peoples from Mexico and America only gives a special atmosphere to this state. While in Texas, I also noticed how locals love their state and are proud of their origins. Not just one of the most popular expressions out there is “Don’t mess with Texas.
How to get there
Getting to Texas is easy, especially if the person is already in the United States, and you can browse this site to know more. From Moscow and St. Petersburg, of course, you can only fly. There are a lot of airports here, some of the busiest are in Dallas, Austin and Houston. You can also sail to the State from Mexico or by train or car from many other regions of America.
In my opinion, the best time to visit Texas is spring. Since in summer in most parts of the region the temperature reaches 35-40 °, it will not be very comfortable to stay there, especially in such arid areas as Dallas. But nevertheless, tourist life will always be rich, as there are a lot of various events, festivals, concerts, festivals all year round in Texas. Museums and natural objects do not close for the winter period.
Texas in Summer
Summer in Texas is one of the most seasonal times, especially considering the beaches and numerous festivals and holidays. People come here to relax on the ocean coast. The temperature in June is about 27 ° С, in July and August it is 30-40 ° С. There are many tourists and even more locals who are trying to escape from the sultry heat.
Texas in Fall
During fall, you can also find something to do in Texas, as the air temperature is around 20 ° C, and the walks become more comfortable compared to summer. During such a period, you can safely go to any of the cities and plunge into the historical atmosphere of the region. There are plenty of tourists during this period. However, they no longer concentrate on the coasts, but in major cities like Austin and Dallas.
Texas in Spring
Spring is my favorite season to travel to Texas. It seems to me that this is the most suitable period, since in April-May you can already relax on numerous beaches, as well as quietly move between cities without languishing from the heat. Tourists begin to move here by mid-spring, but they are smaller than in summer.
Texas in Winter
Winter is not the perfect season for Texas, since during this period there can be strong winds, including tornadoes, and even rarely snow can fall. So I advise you to postpone the trip until spring. In addition, it will not be possible to appreciate the beauty of the region.
