  • Football – In Texas any football game is a big deal, be it the community high school game, any of the university teams, and of course the professional teams.
  • Watersports – Texas not only has a coastline on both sides, but Lake Travis is a favorite spot for tubing, boating, and water skis, and rafting, kayaking or canoeing on the Rio Grande through the Santa Elena Canyon is another must.
  • Hiking – There are more than 100 national or state parks in this state, Big Bend National Park is undoubtedly the largest and offers over 150 miles of trails.
