Texas at a Glance

Austin, Texas - Compare Hotels

Austin, Texas

Austin, rated on Money magazine's 'Best Places to Live' list, has become a hotbed for tourists. If it's a great place to live, it's an even better place to visit.

Austin has it; and travellers have discovered it. In fact, so many travellers have discovered Austin that officials had to build a new airport. With passenger traffic four times the national average, the new Austin-Bergstrom International Airport surpassed all expectations in its few months of operation.

Spring is the perfect time to visit Austin. Travellers will find plenty of things to do in Austin from March through May, including the South by Southwest Music and Film Festival, the Texas Hill Country Wine and Food Festival and the Austin Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Corpus Christi, Texas - Compare Hotels

Corpus Christi, Texas

Corpus Christi has 5,000 guestrooms downtown with another 3,800 in the outlying towns.

Corpus Christi, Texas, is known as the Premier Texas Coast Destination because it is a sparkling city that plays by sea and offers an abundance of things to do, and so much more to cast an enchanted eye upon, including such world-class attractions such as the USS Lexington and the Texas State Aquarium.

Heat lovers won’t wilt in the Summer but the rest of us will enjoy Corpus Christi more in April, May, and October.

Dallas, Texas - Compare Hotels

Dallas, Texas

To reach Dallas, you will need to fly into either the large Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) or the highly popular and centrally located Love Field Airport. Unless they're flying in from great distances, most local residents prefer Love Field.

Whether you're visiting Dallas for business or pleasure, you'll be happily surprised by the many choices you'll find for hotel accommodations, exciting entertainment events and tasty cuisine.

Dallas, known for its severe thunderstorms and tornadoes, is best visited before the summer months.

Houston, Texas - Compare Hotels

Houston, Texas

Houston is a very big city - the fourth largest in the United States; a mixed-bag city of cowboy pride and cosmopolitan living, oil fortunes and online companies.

The city's population is ethnically diverse, with thriving Vietnamese, Mexican, Indian and German communities, just to name a few. Houston has plenty to offer travellers of all ages and interests. At the same time, the sheer size of the city can make it a bit overwhelming for the first-timer. The trick is to take it in sections and to not try everything in one trip.

In mid-February, you'll be treated to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, the largest event of this kind in the world. The famed Bayou Bend Gardens are best viewed in the Spring. In late April, the Houston International Festival spans 20 city blocks and includes over 1,800 performers from around the globe.

Irving, Texas - Compare Hotels

Irving, Texas

With 250 days of sunshine every year and an average temperature of 76 degrees, Irving is more than just a place to stay near the airport.

Centrally located between Dallas and Fort Worth, Irving is serviced by two major airports - the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Love Field. Located in the heart of the Metroplex, the town provides easy accessibility to five major highways: I-635, I-30, I-35, SH 183 and SH 114.

Irving is a great location for any sports fan -- from the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys and the NHL's Dallas Stars to the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and MLB's Texas Rangers. PGA Tour golf at the GTE Byron Nelson Classic, thoroughbred horse racing at Lone Star Park and auto racing at Texas Motor Speedway are all winning reasons to visit Irving.

San Antonio, Texas - Compare Hotels

San Antonio, Texas

Located in the center of Texas, San Antonio is warm, friendly and inviting. It offers luxurious, historical, quaint, and inexpensive places to stay.

Although San Antonio is America’s 8th largest city and has a population of more than one million, it has the uncanny distinction of being a metropolitan city that acts much like a large town.

San Antonio, the 8th largest city in the U.S., is most vibrant during the Spring. In April, San Antonio plays host to its largest party (Fiesta) when rooms can be difficult to find; so book well in advance.

Austin, Texas

Austin: A Capital Idea: by Paris Permenter & John Bigley.

When Mirabeau B. Lamar, the president-elect of the Texas Republic, set out to hunt buffalo in the fall of 1838, he returned home with a much greater catch than a prize buffalo: a home for the new Texas capital.

Dallas, Texas

There's More to Dallas Than The Cowboys: by Rita Cook.

Dallas came to be about 150 years ago on the banks of the Trinity River and has grown into a booming metropolis that hosts the world's second-busiest airport, the nation's most popular football team and a host of unique attractions.

San Antonio, Texas

Spring in San Antonio: by Elizabeth Sommer Spratt.

Jump into Spring a little early with a trip to San Antonio, Texas. This city blends historic, romantic and contemporary settings within a ten-blockradius.

The Golf Darling of the South: by Wendy Maxey.

When you think of golf, you probably don't think San Antonio. Why would you when you've got Pebble Beach, Palm Springs, Myrtle Beach, Scottsdale and countless other golf hubs packing them in season after season?

Well, believe it or not, San Antonio is a golfing hotspot.

What To Expect in San Antonio: by Rita Cook.

Despite boasting 1.3 million residents, San Antonio is still a quaint old town with Spanish missions and adobe buildings adorning the city.
