Insight Guides: Inspiring your next adventure

This new edition of Insight Guide Texas is a comprehensive, full-color travel guide packed with inspiration and information. It is packed with engrossing features on everything from Texan cowboys and Spanish missions to the Houston's Space Center.

Inside Insight Texas:

A detailed history section covers its American Indian and Spanish heritage and the fight for independence and explains how it evolved into one of the most influential US states.

A revamped Best of Texas section lists the state's must-see attractions, from national parks to historic sites and art galleries to festivals. With a new chapter on Austin, the Places section covers the state's principal cities and the deserts, mountains and coastal areas between. Specially commissioned photographs vividly capture Texas' arid, but beautiful landscape, the dynamic architecture of its cities, and its surprisingly diverse population.

Detailed full-color maps help you get around, while the travel tips section is packed with useful information on transport, climate, festivals and outdoor activities, and provides answers to such questions as when to go, where to stay and what to budget for your trip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great guide I love Insight guide, they are really fun to read before going on a trip to give a little taste of what to expect. The Texas guide is no different. With an abundance of picture, a lot of cultural information a well written and informative text, this guide is a fun read to give yourself a taste of the Lone Star State. Insight guides aren't the place to look for good addresses to eat or sleep, their force lie in the narrative constructed to give an overview of a country or a region. In this case, the overview is fairly complete, with a text about Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Hill Country, El Paso, Big Bend and many other. The first third of the book gives cultural information about the architecture, the politic and the history of the state, while the last part gives factual information for travelling. A great read and a useful book for a trip in Texas.
