A Vacation in Texas

Orientation

The USA's Second Largest State

Texas is the second largest state in America, by both size and population. Often referred to by its nickname 'the Lone Star state', Texas borders Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and New Mexico. The sprawling state also shares borders with several Mexican states including Chihuahua and the Gulf Coast is its southern border.

A Diverse Range of Scenery

Texas offers visitors a diverse range of scenery from piney woods and coastal swamps in the east to the desert and mountains of Big Bend in the west. In between, you'll find rolling prairies and grasslands, rugged hills and vibrant cities like Fort Worth and Dallas that are known for their excellent shopping and nightlife.

See More with Car Rental in Texas

Rent a car in Texas and you'll be able to see so much more. Austin, the state capital, is often called the gateway to the hill country and it's just a short drive to hotspots like Buda, LLana and Concan. A rental vehicle is also ideal for trips to Jamaica Beach, South Padre Island, the Rio Grande Valley and other Gulf Coast resorts.

Activities

Discover the Great Texas Cities

Texas is a heady blend of magnificent cities and wide open spaces. Spend a day at the Space Center in Houston or shop at luxury malls in Dallas. If you prefer a more relaxed pace, take a stroll along the banks of Lady Bird Lake in Austin or revisit the past at the Alamo Mission in San Antonio. Alternatively, try Corpus Christi for galleries, museums and entertainment just a stone's throw from some of the state's best beaches.

A Great Place for a Beach Holiday

The Gulf Coast stretches from the bayous of Galveston Bay to the Rio Grande Valley via some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Rent a beach house on Mustang Island or Matagorda Bay and combine glorious sandy beaches with the shops and nightlife of nearby Corpus Christi. Or visit Port Isabel, Brownsville or South Padre Island in the Rio Grande Valley for dramatic coastal and desert scenery.

A Must for Outdoor Enthusiasts

There is nowhere quite like the Texas hill country. Enjoy nature as you hike and cycle or try canoeing past dramatic sandstone bluffs on the LLano River. See the pink Enchanted Rock near Fredericksburg or visit 'Old Baldy' the 500-year-old cypress tree at McKinney Falls State Park near Austin before setting off on a hike.

The state of Texas takes its name from the Caddo Indian word "tejas" meaning "friends". Caddo tribes once lived on the land surrounding modern-day Nacogdoches.

2. Fish on the Llano River

The Llano River flows in an east or north-easterly direction through the Texas hill country to the north of Enchanted Rock near LLano. A tributary of the Colorado River, it is and one of just a handful of fly fishing spots in Texas and home to Guadalupe bass, the state fish of Texas, alligator gar, sunfish and largemouth bass.

3. Visit the Texas State Aquarium

The Texas State Aquarium is a must for those renting a beach house in Mustang Island or Padre Island. Located on the Corpus Christi harborfront, the aquarium has a striking shark exhibit, touch pools and even an aquatic nursery.
