Obviously we visited Texas to see family, but will provide my views on it as a tourist destination and my experience. Texas really likes being Texas, so you certain,y know what state you are in.
My total score for Texas out of 50 is 30.
Categories out of 10
Home comforts Quality of food, accommodation, etc. Score of 8. Stayed with family so that was great. There is lots of choice for food and certainly lots of places to eat out.
Attractions The quality of the attractions and generally how fun and interesting they were. Score of 5. There are quite a few things to do, but no big headliner attractions.
Natural Beauty The aesthetic vistas of the state which make the drive easier. Score of 4. The roads are currently being redeveloped, so roads are currently a mess. Driving through the countryside is a bit dull.
Culture Historical and cultural sites and interactions with the locals. Score of 5. Limited historical sites.
Value Financial value – bang for your buck, so to speak. Score of 8. You can certainly get lots for your money.
