There are certain things about Texas that only Texans truly get. Here are a few:
HEB – the best and most wonderful grocery store on the planet.
The produce section is amazing and everything is so fresh! In addition, the meats are beautiful, cheap, and delicious, and there is actually a tortillaria there where fresh tortillas are made all the time! Yum!!
Blue Bell Ice Cream
Unless you’ve tasted it, you just don’t know. Here is my favorite:
The Texas Hill Country
One of the most beautiful areas of Texas, it includes my favorite town (New Braunfels) and my favorite waterpark (Schlitterbahn – the original one). The drives one can take on a lazy afternoon through this beautiful part of the Lonestar State are stunning and guaranteed to bring peace to the soul.
Buc-ee’s Gas Station
A gas station? Yes… but not just any gas station… It’s an entire experience, and the bathrooms are amazing!
The oldest continually operational bakery in Texas, and a place I’ve been visiting since I was a toddler. It is amazing and tasty, and chock full of memories. Just the aroma takes me back to my childhood and visiting the shop with my grandmother, who always made sure I had my favorite cookie before we left.
Tex-Mex and Texas BBQ
Yeah… there’s nothing to compare.
These are a few of my favorite things about Texas and just a small sampling of the wonders and exciting experiences to be had here. For those of you who have never been here, make sure you put a visit to the Lonestar State on your bucket list!
