The Lone Star State boasts so much excitement that its name is synonymous with wild action. We’ve rounded up a few “totally Texas” reasons why.
As any Texan or any traveler to the state can tell you, everything about Texas is oversized: the history, the personalities, the tall tales, the food, the music, the adventures. In fact, they use a term in Norway to describe when a situation — a party, a soccer game, a crime, whatever — goes haywire: helt texas, which translates to “totally Texas.” In other words, for Norwegians, texas is slang for crazy. Texans, true to form for people from a state whose motto is “Friendship,” tend to take that as a compliment.
We rounded up as many “totally Texas” things to do, places to go, people to know, and sights to see as we could fit in our July issue, and it barely scratches the surface of the state C&I proudly calls home. Click on a few of the highights below, and stay tuned for more stories throughout the month of July.
