We’ve all heard the old adage, “Everything’s bigger in Texas.” But does that phrase hold true? Well, it depends who you ask and what you’re talking about, but here are some things that are typically larger in the Lone Star State.

The Sky
The vast sky over Texas plains is truly something to behold. Because of the state’s mostly flat topography, the sky takes up the majority of any landscape in Texas and can produce some of the most beautiful sunsets and cloud formations in the world.

Driving Distance
Driving time in Texas is no joke. It is a truly massive state with a ton of space between most of its major cities. Believe it or not, the drive from Dallas to Chicago is actually shorter than driving from Dallas to El Paso. Don’t expect to get from point A to point B very quickly while traveling throughout Texas.

Entertainment
Stadiums, arenas, amusement parks, museums and waterpark resorts in Texas are all bigger than you’ll find in most other states. Never be bored by enjoying one of the many attractions the Lone Star State has to offer.

Country Music
Country music is a mainstay of Texas. You’ll not only hear it playing on most radio stations, you can also stumble across country concerts at bars and different venues across the state. Not that you can’t find other music in Texas, but the appreciation and love for country music is certainly bigger than in most areas.

Vehicles
At least half the vehicles on the road in Texas are SUVs or trucks. Forget going for gas mileage, if you’re driving a car in Texas, you might feel like a bit of an outcast. Often referred to as “Ford Country,” Texas is a place where size does matter when it comes to your vehicle.
