The queer and very much intriguing aura associated with Texas makes it a different sort of tourist destination. Well, like any other major places in the US, Texas (the second largest US state) has also got its own set of travel attractions. You can easily spend a week or so in traveling across Texas and visiting places like- Guadalope National Park, the Alamo, Texas State Aquarium and trying some boat trip in San Antonio.
However, there are several things, if kept in mind while on a vacation in Texas, can add some degree of assurance and security in terms of a traveller point of view. Say for example, it is advisable to get a detailed information on the weather during your planned vacation in Texas. Though warm and dry in general, Texas sees some cold in East Texas and the Gulf Coast in the winter. Keep an alarm on the tornadoes and hurricane season that can pose a threat to your holiday.
Similarly, driving on your own in Texas might seem fancy with rugged routes and tough climate; but these factors demand more care as at times you might find yourself with a flat tyre or broken engine in the middle of nowhere and no one. Do have spare tyres, charged cell phone, water, a map and someone who knows the place to its back bone.
Other safety measures that could come handy in Texas includes the full knowledge of the local rules on alcohol sales in some interior parts like Lubbock, Abilene and San Angelo. They might be a bit perplexing, but full information assures a fine night out. Apart from these, while roaming around in the wild of Texas, make sure you are well away from the alligators, the killer bees, fire ants and of course, the rattle snakes (how dare you under mind them!).
This is just a brief introduction to the list of how to have a safe Texas vacation. Get the hang of it and call up your travel planner!
