Adventures are never boring, and we should have as many of them as possible. But sometimes we get caught up in our everyday lives and the time to get away gets less and less. Make plans to adventure through the Lone Star State this summer, where your experiences can not only be unique but also Texas-sized, like they should be. With so many exceptional things to do and see in this great state, here are five that should help you get started!

1. Touring the Space Center
