East Texas: located on the border of Louisiana and filled with hundreds of lakes, rivers and streams, making it a fisherman's paradise. It also has the Blackland Prairies, 12 million acres of grassland used for cattle grazing and covered in wild flowers during the early spring. Tyler is known as the rose capitol of Texas and during March and April you will find wonderful displays of roses and azaleas.
The Gulf Coast: a 100-mile strip along the Gulf of Mexico characterised by beautiful wind-swept beaches. The oil town of Houston is located in this region, and is home to NASA. Galveston, Corpus Christi and South Padre Island are our favourite sandy spots.
The Panhandle: is the very northern section of the state and is made up of sweeping plains and majestic mesas and other rocky outcrops. This area is used mostly for cattle and sheep grazing as well as mining and oil drilling.
