Cheap Flights to Texas

The fierce independence and pride of Texas is tempered by the expansive generosity of its hospitality. The fiery flavors of BBQ and Tex-Mex meals, the centuries-old call of the West, the warmth and kindness of its people: everything about Texas will stick to your ribs and stir your heart, staying with you long after you shake the desert dust from your boots.

Flights to Texas

Texas has more airports than any other state. The biggest and busiest is Dallas-Fort Worth International (DFW), serving more than 60 million passengers each year, and it’s your best bet if you’re looking for cheap flights to Texas. It’s American Airline’s largest hub, and more than 30 airlines connect DFW to over 200 destinations.

In Houston, George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) transports more than 40 million passengers annually, and is United Airline’s biggest hub. Austin–Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), San Antonio International Airport (AUS), McAllen-Miller International Airport (MFE), and El Paso International Airport (ELP) are the state’s other major airports, but with almost 400 commercial airports to choose from, you can fly right in to almost anywhere in Texas.

What to do in Texas

In a state this enormous, with so much incredible and varied terrain, you’re limited only by your imagination and your budget. Everything really is bigger in Texas: find yourself a spot on the beach on its 600 miles of coastline, improve your swing on its 900 golf courses, summon up your inner cowpoke on a gorgeous dude ranch, or sign up for a trek through the gigantic wildlife refuges of the Rio Grande valley.

If that’s a little too much wilderness for you, try the metropolitan centers of Texas: each of its major cities bursts with personality. Dallas is both flashy and gracious, Houston is dazzling in scale and scope, San Antonio is home to the Alamo, and Austin is proudly and wonderfully weird. Even in the middle of a sophisticated downtown, Texas keeps its country edges, embracing a slowed-down, agriculturally-inspired way of life. To fully embrace the spirit of the Lone Star State, you should too.

Advice to Tourists Visiting Texas

The climate in Texas varies from the tropical to the arid, and the sheer size of the state forbids any generalization about weather. Most parts will see temperatures pushing 100 degrees at the height of summer, so the shoulder seasons of late spring and early fall are often much more comfortable for sight-seeing. English is the main language in Texas, but you’ll hear Spanish almost as often.

When you’ve got so much ground to cover, having a car of your own will help you make the most of your Texan adventure.
