Texas is a holiday destination that is capable of suiting any holidaymaker – from its ranches and rodeos to its major cities and even to its beaches. So there is a variety of opportunities for you to get stuck into during your stay in a villa in Texas, whether you enjoy outdoor activities such as kayaking or you prefer discovering local cuisine and historical sites. If you're planning a holiday with the family, there are plenty of exciting and educational excursions you can make with the kids such as visiting the Space Center in Houston or go to one of the many Native American museums spread across the state. Texas apartments can be found amidst all kinds of landscapes, as the Lone Star State has deserts, a long coastline, forests and prairies.
Visit Texas' cosmopolitan capital
Austin, the capital of Texas, is the perfect location for fans of music, as there are always plenty of gigs sprawled across the city every night, with genres ranging from the blues to country to rock – its called the Live Music Capital of the World for reason. Though it is a very cosmopolitan capital, Austin also has plenty to offer in terms of nature. Head to Lady Bird Lake and follow a hiking or biking trail alongside it, or cool off at Barton Springs Pool, a freezing cold natural spring pool that covers three whole acres. If your villa in Texas is based around Austin, be sure to explore the surrounding area of the Hill Country, with its hills, lakes and wildflowers.
Discover the vast history of the South Texas Plains
For a more tropical climate, look for a holiday rental property in the South Texas Plains. Here you'll find dry grassy landscapes and plenty of cacti. San Antonio is a major city in this region and has played a significant role in history, from the Battle of Alamo to Spanish missions. During your stay in Texas apartments here, be sure to make a trip to El Mercado, the biggest Mexican market in the United States of America and look around the various stall and get a taste of the delicious food.
Head to the North for a taste of Texan culture
The northern regions of Prairies and Lakes and the Panhandle Plains are also beautiful locations for your Texas apartments. The famous city of Dallas lies at the heart of the first of these regions, with its cowboys and its cheerleaders now symbols of pop culture. During your stay in an apartment here why not go see a Rangers' game and take in the sporting atmosphere? With such a diverse mixture of cultures in this city, there is plenty of choice in terms of food and drink – whether you want a classic Texas BBQ, want to visit a typical American steakhouse, or get a taste of some delicious Mexican specialities, you'll be sure to find something that meets everyone's taste.
The Texas Panhandle has the famous Wichita Falls, an ideal destination for a family holiday to the States. Here you can visit the man-made waterfalls that had replaced the original falls which had been washed away by floods in the 19th century – alongside it you'll find some great parks, and you can even follow a walking trail between Lucy Park and Reilly Park, stopping for a picnic along the way. If your villa in Texas is around this area you could even make your way to Oklahoma City in just a couple of hours for a day trip if you'd like to get a taste of another American state during your stay.
