By  | 

Texas is rich in history and tradition. Some may seem odd and others even more odd, but nevertheless they are what make Texas unique. Natives are loyal and we can spot a tourist a mile away. Want to blend in? Avoid making any of these novice mistakes.

1. If they haven’t packed for every conceivable type of weather outcome, they are probably a tourist.

It’s called sweet tea – Learn it. Drink it.

3. If the very first place they want to go in Texas is Austin, then they are probably a tourist.
