Cheap flights to Texas

Located in the south of the United States of America, right by the country’s border with Mexico, Texas - otherwise known as the Lone Star State - is bordered by Arkansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Louisiana. With an area of more than 200,000 square miles, it is the second largest of the 50 American states and is home to more than 26 million people.

Getting around

Being the second largest state in the USA, there’s a lot of Texas to cover - so if you’re planning on seeing all the amazing attractions at one go, it’d probably be in your best interest to get around the region on domestic flights, lest you find yourself wasting a lot of time on ground transportation.

But if you’re not hard-up on time or are only covering a section of Texas, rent yourself a car instead; the entire region is road-trip-friendly, with an extensive network of well-developed highways, roads, parking spaces and plenty of amazing scenery along the way.

What to see and do

If in Texas, be sure to drop by the city of Dallas, considered one of the state’s top holiday destinations with its mild, pleasant climate and numerous renowned museums, parks, lakes, gardens and sports stadiums. For an immersive experience into American history, head to Dallas’ renowned Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza - on top of seeing the usual exhibits you’d expect in a museum, you’d go deeper into history by standing in the same place where sniper Lee Harvey Oswald was when he fired the bullet that killed iconic US President John F. Kennedy. Today, the Museum is filled with historic artefacts, photographs, films and more that delve into the past and uncover secrets related to the presidential assassination and subsequent investigations.

After that, head to another of Texas’ most important sites – the Space Center Houston at NASA Parkway in the city of Houston. The official visitor centre of the Johnson Space Center, which serves as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)’s center for spaceflight activities, the Space Center is home to historic artefacts from the USA’s outer space activities. Check out cool space gadgets like the Apollo 17 command module, the Lunar Rover (a space exploration vehicle that can move across the surface of the moon) and many other futuristic technology that looks like it came straight out of a space Hollywood movie. You can even have Lunch with an Astronaut - one of the Space Center’s regular activities - to find out more about what its like being one of the privileged few that get to venture into space, and listen to recounts of America’s great space adventures and tragedies.
