Hitting the Old Town Road: What are the Oldest Texas Towns?
When people (and we mean non-Texans, to be specific) think of Texas, they usually think of cowboy boots, horses, country music, and good ol’ Texan slang.
But no, Texas doesn’t look like the god-awful mockery in that Rednex song. As a matter of fact, Texas is home to some of the oldest towns and cities in the country.
And we’re going to talk about some of them here.
The biggest Texas city, Houston, is best known for its Space Center. It’s the space capital of the world for a reason. Many of the rockets and space shuttles out there, circling the void, were launched from a pad in Houston.
Houston has also been the venue of battles and wars, so if you miss out on this Texas city—well, in that case, Houston, we have a problem.
Dubbed the music capital of the world, Austin is the capital of Texas. It’s also known for tacos and great concerts, and houses some of the state’s oldest buildings.
Austin’s bat colony is the largest in the world, and if you can catch these bats mid-flight, you might feel like you’re Batman himself. This sure is a city you want to visit.
Situated near the Trinity River and famous for being the home of the most valuable football team in the world (the Dallas Cowboys), too many things have happened in Dallas for it to be ignored so easily. After all, this is the city where John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Its Dallas-Forth Worth Airport is one of the biggest and busiest airports in the world. It’s also a great place for art lovers!
San Antonio is a textbook spaghetti Western real-life movie set. Whether you’re visiting stone buildings such as the Alamo or simply taking a walk, you’ll be reminded of the likes of Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef. It’s a beautiful, unique place that’s a must-visit for any Western-lover.
Galveston is interesting because it’s an island. Naturally, it’s known for its iconic beaches. But there are also other things: its cultural heritage is rich and goes back decades, its streets are lined with Victorian architecture, and it is always populated by tourists from all over the world.
