The beautiful city and Texas state capital of Austin with its lush riverside parks is a pleasant surprise to everyone who visits there. Dallas is the image of Texas that most people are familiar with, and visitors will not be disappointed. North Texas is home of the cattle ranges and oil fields that fuel the state's economy. Another, less familiar side of the state is its ocean playground on the Gulf Coast, with great beach resorts. Houston boasts the Houston Shipping Channel, a major shipping seaport that reaches to the Gulf of Mexico, only 50 miles away. San Antonio is one of Texas's most well-known historic regions and is very beautiful.
