Whether you're here for the gloriously diverse landscape, the unique cultural heritage or the bold flavours of the well celebrated barbecuing cuisine, Texas is one of the most underestimated parts of the world that needs to be moved up on everyone's must-see list.

Starting off with the complex topography of Texas, you may be blissfully unaware of how pristine and idyllic the beaches of the state's 350 plus miles of coastline are. Going inland, you can forget the Grand Canyon and replace it with Palo Duro Canyon - the world's second largest canyon that enables you to witness the beauty of the dynamic landscape without facing swarms of tourists. On top of this, there are lakes, caves, waterfalls and parks just waiting to be discovered in the USA's largest state.

Believe it or not, Texas has an incredibly dense historical past that not many people know about. You can learn about the state's colourful heritage in one of its several iconic museums, for example, the National Museum of the Pacific War or Austin's Bob Bullock Museum to name a few.

You may think that the idea of rodeos and ranches is a bit of a Texan stereotype, but actually, these places still exist AND they are a whole lot of fun to visit. Whether you prefer to sit back and watch the masters at work or throw yourself in at the deep end and get your hands dirty, the choice is yours.

Texas is the home of the barbecue and of course Tex-Mex, so a trip to the state would be incomplete without a meat feast fit for a king. You will see queues outside some of the more famous BBQ shacks like Franklin Barbecue, but according to the thousands of fans that visit each year, the wait couldn't be more worth it.
