Texas' Top Cities

If you fancy a trip to Texas, you will have to spend some time thinking of the best places to visit in the state. There are so many fab locations that you might really find it difficult to narrow it down effectively.

If you already have a short list of some potential cities to visit in Texas, then you might find it easier to decide where to go on your trip. If not, don’t worry. This is where this blog will come in! Here are a few of the state’s best cities that all visitors will really enjoy.


Dallas has to be one of the most well-known cities in the whole of Texas so this might have already been on your list of places to visit. It’s right up in the north of the state and is a melting pot of culture and commerce. There’s also so much for tourists to do there as well. For instance, you might want to visit the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens for a stroll and some fresh air. Kids will love spending a few hours in the Perot Museum of Science and Nature where they can see some dinosaur skeletons and other fossils.


Another really popular city in Texas has to be Austin. This is the state capital so, as you can imagine, there is plenty going on in this bustling city. The Bullock Museum has lots of the states history on display and you can learn a lot about the city’s past in the exhibitions. While in Austin, you need to try some of its famous brisket, and you’ll find no better than the meat served up at Franklin Barbecue. If the weather is good, take a leisurely stroll around Zilker Park.


If you aren’t all that into large metropolises, then you might want to stick to Texas’ smaller cities. If you find a hotel in Rankin, Texas, you’ll be sure of plenty of peace and quiet so that you can get a good night’s rest. The Rankin Museum will take you back to the 1920s and if the weather ever gets too hot, you can always take a dip in the Tommy Workman Swimming Pool Park.


Houston is another firm favorite with many visitors to Texas. You’ll find the Space Center Houston here, which is a truly fantastic day out. As well as that, you can while away a few hours in the Downtown Aquarium. The Health Museum is also a great day out, and you’ll learn everything there is to know about health sciences.

San Antonio

San Antonio is very different from the cities mentioned above as it has such a strong colonial influence. The Alamo is an historic fort that features a museum and garden. Be sure to also visit the Missions National Historical Park, where you can wander around some 16th-century history.

There are so many great cities to visit in Texas, but the ones mentioned above are by far the most popular. Where will you go?
