Texas is such a diverse state that there’s just no way one could peg all of the things that those from the Lone Star State truly love about it. But, we certainly try! Those things about Texas that make life better, intermixed with all of the things the cultures of our state revolve around, make up who we are. Of course, everybody has their own tastes, but here are 5 things guaranteed to rank at the top of any list a Texan would love about Texas!

1. Bluebonnets

Holding a place in our hearts, the pretty, blue lupin that graces Texas roadways and fields each year in the spring is not only a backdrop for pictures but a mainstay in our gardens. There is no other flower which commands the respect that this state flower does.

2. Great Texas Food

Good gracious, there’s nothing in the world like good food from Texas! It could be Tex-Mex, Czech-inspired kolaches and klobasneks, crisp and moist brisket, or our selection of pecans – we love it all!

3. Rodeo

Riding, roping, the music and crowds, carnivals, and of course the fair-like food such as corn dogs and funnel cakes – they all make something to love in a Texas rodeo!

4. Good Manners

We Texans have a considerable amount of reverence for those who have good manners, which includes the sending of thank-you cards and having great table etiquette. There’s just something that doesn’t sit well about a person who’s impolite.

5. George Strait

There isn’t much you can say about George Strait that hasn’t been said or admired by a Texan previously. Therefore, we can’t expound further nor improve upon something that’s reached the pinnacle of our adoration. Keep on keeping on George!
