I love traveling in our state, we have so much to choose from.  From the DFW area with Six Flags and Hurricane Harbor, to San Antonio with the River Walk and Fiesta Texas.  Not to mention the Gulf Coast with the amazing beaches.  We have amazing State Parks and here in Amarillo we have one in our backyard with Palo Duro Canyon.  Do I even have to mentions the amazing lakes across the state.

There really isn't a need to leave Texas to road trip because we have so much to do in this great state.
