Deep in the Heart of Texas: Holiday Rental Homes

Of all the states in the Union, Texas has perhaps the most complex and rich history of all. As the Dallas-based amusement park known as "Six Flags over Texas" proclaims, this state has been a part of six separate nations during the last few hundred years: Spain, Mexico, France, the Republic of Texas, the Confederate States of America, and the United States. All this history means that tourists staying in Texas vacation homes will never run out of things to do.

Texas is the largest of the 48 continuous states that make up the bulk of the nation. As such, it offers visitors a wealth of different natural habitats to explore. The "panhandle" in the north has average annual temperatures in the 50s, while temperatures in Laredo, on the Mexican border, average a full 25 degrees higher. In all, Texas has five different climate zones.

One of the largest cities in Texas is Dallas. Here, visitors can explore Dealey Plaza, the site of the infamous 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The Sixth Floor Museum on Dealey Plaza presents tourists with a comprehensive account of this event, including the many conspiracy theories that surround it.

Another popular tourist attraction in Dallas is the Southfork Ranch, made famous in the 1980s when it provided outdoor sets for the popular television drama named after the city. Film buffs will also want to visit the nearby city of Fort Worth where parts of the motion picture Logan's Run were filmed.

Texas is big enough to handle any vacation plans you make. From The Big "D"(that's Dallas, ya'll), to Galveston Island, from Houston to San Antonio, you can't go wrong vacationing in Texas. There's plenty to do here and plenty of room to do it in! The people are some of the nicest you'll ever meet...who knows...you may just want to move here. Visit San Antonio and our own historic shrine-The Alamo, or take a stroll beneath the stars on our "River Walk" Take in a show in Houston's theater district...did you know it's the second biggest next to Broadway in New York? Do Dallas and catch a football game...it's King down here! See the gorgeous "Hill Country" around Austin when the Bluebonnets are in full bloom. Taste Texas...from gourmet dining to Tex-Mex to Cajun, we love it all. Play on our beaches, fish in our lakes, spend the day at one of our local festivals. You'll want to return again and again. Ya'll Come!!
