TEXAS

Texas Brisket

When you think of Texas, you can’t help but think of barbecues and ridiculous quantities of meat. With so many varieties, it’s difficult to know where to start, but for us, the king of the barbecue has to be the Texas brisket. Rubbed with mustard and spices, and slowly smoked over nine hours, it has an incredible depth of flavours. A little morsel of trivia for you…

Look Out for

WHATABURGER!

Whataburger

Another quality chain to look out for on your travels is local-favourite Whataburger. Apparently, founder Harmon Dobson’s main aim was to create a burger so large it had to be eaten with two hands, and so delicious you can’t help but exclaim “What a burger!” upon eating it. As far as we’re concerned, a job well done. In recent news…

Delicious!

Tex-Mex

Neighbouring Mexico has also had a huge influence on the food, bringing the world delicious Tex-Mex. If you happen to find yourself in Austin, you’ll be spoilt for choice, but we recommend you checkout Güero's Taco Bar, where they prove that bigger really is better.

Cadillac Ranch

If you’re driving through Texas along the famous U.S. Route 66, be sure to look out for the Cadillac Ranch. This classic roadside attraction pays worthy homage to America’s love affair with anything on four wheels,with 10 colourfully graffiti-ed Cadillacs buried hood-first.

SOUTH
BY SOUTHWEST

Festiwal

Hill
Country

Texas is almost three times the size of the UK, so simply hitting the road to explore with no direction might just get you nowhere – literally. Instead, we recommend a road trip around the Hill Country, where you can catch a glimpse of the real cowboy lifestyle.

SXSW

Fans of interactive design, film buffs and music lovers alike will be in their element at Texas’ famous South by Southwest festival. The sheer scale of the schedule over the two –week festival is somewhat daunting, so be sure to plan your visit well in advance.

Hunting
for Topaz

For a truly unique Texan experience, drive over to Mason County and try your luck at hunting for Topaz. There are a number of ranches in the area that will set you up with everything you need to go hunting for the official state gem, which is only found in this area.
