Texas at a Glance
Austin, rated on Money magazine's 'Best Places to Live' list, has become a hotbed for
tourists. If it's a great place to live, it's an even better place to visit.
Austin has it; and travellers have discovered it. In fact, so many
travellers have discovered Austin that officials had to build a new airport. With
passenger traffic four times the national average, the new Austin-Bergstrom International
Airport surpassed all expectations in its few months of operation.
Spring is the perfect time to visit Austin. Travellers will find plenty
of things to do in Austin from March through May, including the South by Southwest Music
and Film Festival, the Texas Hill Country Wine and Food Festival and the Austin Livestock
Show and Rodeo.
Corpus Christi has 5,000 guestrooms downtown with another 3,800 in the outlying towns.
Corpus Christi, Texas, is known as the Premier Texas Coast Destination
because it is a sparkling city that plays by sea and offers an abundance of things to do,
and so much more to cast an enchanted eye upon, including such world-class attractions
such as the USS Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium.
Heat lovers wont wilt in the Summer but the rest of us will enjoy
Corpus Christi more in April, May, and October.
To reach Dallas, you will need to fly into either the large Dallas Fort Worth
International Airport (DFW) or the highly popular and centrally located Love Field
Airport. Unless they're flying in from great distances, most local residents prefer Love
Whether you're visiting Dallas for business or pleasure, you'll be
happily surprised by the many choices you'll find for hotel accommodations, exciting
entertainment events and tasty cuisine.
Dallas, known for its severe thunderstorms and tornadoes, is best
visited before the summer months.

imagination can run wild with creative inspiration at every turn. Featuring a whole host
of exciting attractions from the Kingdom Quest ride to an amazing recreation of Dallas'
most iconic buildings, the Center not only provides fun for LEGO fans young and old, but
fantastic educational benefits too.
Houston is a very big city - the fourth largest in the United States; a mixed-bag city of
cowboy pride and cosmopolitan living, oil fortunes and online companies.
The city's population is ethnically diverse, with thriving Vietnamese,
Mexican, Indian and German communities, just to name a few. Houston has plenty to offer
travellers of all ages and interests. At the same time, the sheer size of the city can
make it a bit overwhelming for the first-timer. The trick is to take it in sections and to
not try everything in one trip.
In mid-February, you'll be treated to the Houston Livestock Show and
Rodeo, the largest event of this kind in the world. The famed Bayou Bend Gardens are best
viewed in the Spring. In late April, the Houston International Festival spans 20 city
blocks and includes over 1,800 performers from around the globe.
With 250 days of sunshine every year and an average temperature of 76 degrees, Irving is
more than just a place to stay near the airport.
Centrally located between Dallas and Fort Worth, Irving is serviced by
two major airports - the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Love Field. Located
in the heart of the Metroplex, the town provides easy accessibility to five major
highways: I-635, I-30, I-35, SH 183 and SH 114.
Irving is a great location for any sports fan -- from the NFLs
Dallas Cowboys and the NHL's Dallas Stars to the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and MLB's Texas
Rangers. PGA Tour golf at the GTE Byron Nelson Classic, thoroughbred horse racing at Lone
Star Park and auto racing at Texas Motor Speedway are all winning reasons to visit Irving.
Located in the center of Texas, San Antonio is warm, friendly and inviting. It offers
luxurious, historical, quaint, and inexpensive places to stay.
Although San Antonio is Americas 8th largest city and has a
population of more than one million, it has the uncanny distinction of being a
metropolitan city that acts much like a large town.
San Antonio, the 8th largest city in the U.S., is most vibrant during
the Spring. In April, San Antonio plays host to its largest party (Fiesta) when rooms can
be difficult to find; so book well in advance.
