Texas

They say everything is bigger in Texas, and that means big opportunities for finding the perfect spot for your second home!

Climate

When you think of Texas, you might think of the desert, but the fact is only about 10 percent of the Long Star State falls into that category. Along with the arid areas, the state is home to woods, swamps, plains, hills, and mountains. The state is large enough to have several diverse climate zones, though most of the state consistently sees temperatures in the 90s during the summer.

Ranches and rodeos, music and sports

Release your inner cowboy, explore a range of amazing of music, or follow your favorite professional sports team (heck, they even have a National Hockey League team in Texas to go with three NBA teams, two MLB teams, a major speedway, and more).

Culture

Texans are proud of the state’s diverse history and populations. People from around the world call the state home.

Dallas

A city of better than four and a half million people, Dallas boasts 12,000 restaurants, the largest urban arts district in the country, award-winning architecture, and one of the fastest growing light rail systems in America.

Austin

Known as the “Live Music Capital of the World” (as well as the capital of the state), Austin is home to more than 250 music venues. And that doesn’t even begin to encompass all the opportunities in this historic city.

San Antonio

There’s more to remember than The Alamo in San Antonio. The famed River Walk offers a natural respite in an urban center, offering shopping, dining, water taxis, and more. The city is home to one of the nation’s largest populations of active and retired military populations, which is why is it known as “Military City, USA.”

Corpus Christi

Located on the Gulf of Mexico, Corpus Christi is a beach lover’s paradise. At the Museum of Science & History, you can see the oldest shipwreck found in the Gulf and at the Padre Island National Seashore, you can see the sea turtles and much, much more.
