While I’ve never been to Texas, my family has history there. My father was born and raised in the Lone Star State and I’d give my best barbecue to experience Texas for myself.
The folks at Texas on Tour have teamed up with the City of San Antonio (who is celebrating the 175th anniversary of the Battle of the Alamo) to share the flavor of their culture and history-rich state.
Texas. It’s like a whole other country.
Have you considered planning a vacation in Texas, but really weren’t sure what they had to offer? You don’t have to wonder anymore. This summer, you can take a virtual Texas vacation and get a feel for the state with Texas on Tour.
Texas on Tour is an interactive traveling road show that is sweeping the nation and bringing the Texas culture with it. Not only do they have a fun stage act with the upbeat sounds of Texas, but they also have virtual tours of some of Texas’ most popular destinations and attractions, from their sandy beaches to an outrageous kayaking adventure.
