As the second-largest state in the union, Texas really is big - and not just in land mass. With big cities and attractions, there are hundreds of things to do in the Lone Star State. Because Texas covers such a large area and is full of so much fun, you'll need a good way to get around. Fortunately, a Texas rental car can make your trip smooth sailing and help you see everything on your list. While you dart around the state, check out amazing attractions plus unique, one of a kind festivals during your trip to the Lone Star State. Check out one of the most popular, South by Southwest, when you grab your rental car in Austin.
South by Southwest is an annual music, film and interactive arts festival that takes place in Austin. Spanning an entire week in March, you can choose what art and music to enjoy. No matter which you choose, if you're an art lover, you can't miss out on one of the biggest festivals in the U.S. S. Just south of Austin on I-35 is the Alamo. While there, you can learn about the famous battle that took place and how it impacted U.S. history. In fact, you may even get a taste of what frontier life would have been like. The only difference is you'll get to drive off into the sunset in your Texas rental car rather than a covered wagon.
Big Bend National Park, located on the U.S.-Mexican border, Big Bend National Park is a natural wonder. You'll be able to explore the dessert terrain of the park, following the Rio Grande. With tall, red rock formations and dunes, greenery and wildlife, the park has much to see. If you're really outdoorsy, you can even camp in the area. Before you take your rental car out to Big Bend, check weather conditions and closures. These are just a handful of the amazing sights Texas has to offer, so you're must-see list could be even longer.
