After living in Texas for six years (holy cow!), I’ve found the best way to “see” Texas is by taking a random drive. I’ve found, that this is a hard concept for some but you have to be willing to get out of your comfort zone and it’s totally worth it if you want to get a little glimpse of what Texas is all about! There’s no telling what you’ll see… ranches, oil rigs, cows, armadillos, tumbleweeds, cowboys (there’s a great Quicktrip gas station off 35 south that has lots of cowboys), etc.
Every once in a while, we should all just go on a random drive. Better yet, if you’re on your way somewhere, give yourself extra time to explore! There’s no telling what you’ll come across or just how incredible it will be.
