By  | 


Each state has at least one thing they can brag about. Georgia has their peaches, Wisconsin has their cheese, and Idaho has their potatoes. However, there are things here in Texas that only Texans can brag about. Here are 12 of them:

If you ain’t never sunk your teeth into a Whataburger then you ain’t never lived! This burger puts all other fast food burgers to shame.

2. Dr Pepper

Have one at 10, 2, and 4. Dr. Pepper was created in Texas and  is the drink of choice in this great state.

3. BBQ

Nothing compares to the way BBQ tastes here in Texas! NOTHING!

4. Texas State Fair

Howdy, folks! From Big Tex, to exhilarating rides, to all the fried foods you could ever want, Texas State Fair is the best in the country! Besides, who could say no to a Smoky Bacon Margaritas?

5. Luckenbach


Heck! It has a song named after it! Home to some of the best down home country music events in the state, Luckenbach should not be underestimated.

6. Rodeos

Houston takes the cake when it comes to who has the largest rodeo in the world. Other honorable mentions? Fort Worth, Bandera, Austin, San Antonio, and virtually any other city in Texas!

7. Schlitterbahn

What the heck is Schlitterbahn, you ask? Only the#1 water park in the world! And to make it better, it is soon going to be the home of the world’s tallest water coaster.

8. Billy Bob’s


Great music, great dancing, great BBQ, and indoor rodeos. Who could ask for more? It is the world’s largest Honky Tonk!

“Houston, we have a problem.” Sound familiar? Yep, that’s right. When things don’t go quite right in the universe, they call on Texas! Oh, and the space shuttles are pretty cool, too.

10. The Alamo

Texans won’t give up without a fight, and the Alamo is standing proof of that.
