Texas is absolutely amazing and those of us born and raised here will sing that phrase from the rooftops! It truly does not matter which part of the state you're in. Whether you're in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso, Austin--or somewhere smaller like Corpus Christi, Tyler, College Station, or our area here in Midland Odessa. Each area is beautiful and has something different to offer.

If you love to fish, San Angelo may be your thing, not too far and you can fish and swim. Some folks love the beach so they hit up Galveston or Corpus. If you're a sports fanatics and would love to see an Astros game in Houston, a Rangers or Cowboys game in Arlington, or even a Texans game in Houston--along with dozens of minor league teams in various cities all across this great state, you can do so.

However here is some food for thought, it all had to start SOMEWHERE. Long before Texas was its own country; before it was annexed by the United States. Before the big cities existed where so many now call home.

WHICH CITY IS CONSIDERED THE OLDEST TOWN IN TEXAS?

There was the very first place that was settled here and that city is called Presidio Texas. First established in 1535 by Spanish Settlers-the city itself proclaims it's "coming into existence in 1683. It's located right on the Rio Grande river across the United States / Mexico border. As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,426. It is the first official town in the state, making it the oldest place in the state of Texas. Right across the river is the city of Ojinaga, Chihuahua Mexico. There is a very rich history and beautiful scenery in this area, so it's worth a visit if you're seeing the state!
