Here's What Not to Miss in Texas

Must-see events in Texas focus on the state's dedication to community. Texas' never-ending events calendar boasts far more than the state's famous annual fair. From fishing festivals to picnics presided over by country stars such as Willie Nelson, there's much to attract national and international visitors in Texas. Meanwhile, Austin is known as the live music capital of the world, and locals conflate music with life.
