Texas spends a lot of time talking about how big Texas is. It has a lot (and I mean a lot) of Texas themed stores. But it doesn’t really have that much stuff. It has a lot of houses that are very similar and a lot of road construction. For a state this large it should have lots more to do.
I think this state fails from the perception gap. People who live in Texas perceive that it is still traditionally Western, but mostly it is just suburban. I think Texas needs to step up its game to better cater for tourists. Seriously you have lots of space. Be cooler.
