From its wide range of historical landmarks to its beautiful scenery you can’t help but to find something that will fascinate you.  Today, we take a look at the top 3 things to do when you make your way to the Lone Star State.

One of the most historic sites in America is a must see once you make your way to the Lone Star State. It has become an extremely popular attraction over the years as more than two million people visit the Alamo annually to see its restored mission buildings and commemorating the fallen Texans.

Once you experienced The Alamo then make your way to NASA’s Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center. It is an awesome place to check out because you get to see where all space flight training takes place. Furthermore, you will get the opportunity to see where all the research for the world’s largest space program is performed. It is truly a fascinating place as you will get insight into the operations of the world’s largest space program, with many exhibits, film shows, models,and astronaut-related artifacts.

Texas had an excellent variety of different art galleries covering everything from modern artists in the U.S to contemporary works from the Lone Star State itself. The Dallas Museum of Art is one of my favorites, as it features more than 20,000 works of art including pieces from ancient Egypt and Rome. Another fascinating place is Texas is The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, which is the home to a large collection of works from North America, Europe and Africa. It also features brilliant pieces from the Italian Renaissance and the French Impressionist movements.
