Do you like cowboys and oil tycoons? Are you ready to eat burritos for breakfast? Can you name the six flags that ruled over this land? Get ready, ‘cause everything’s bigger in the Lone Star State!
Texas is the 2nd largest in the nation, but that’s not why people love it. They love it for Austin, the Live Music Capital of the world. For El Paso with its Franklin Mountains State Park. For Alamo Mission, San Antonio, that just sprang out of the screen of Leone’s Dollars Trilogy. For Houston and its unbelievable theatres, ballet, opera, and symphonic orchestra.
This could go on and on but let’s talk business. Texas is the 10th largest world economy heavily invested in business and education. The state’s welfare was built on cattle, cotton, timber, and oil. Today, it’s still agriculture and energy, but also high-tech and medical research. Look for a job at one of 54 Fortune 500 companies headquartered here. There are also 11 nation’s top schools including the University of Texas at Austin, Rice University, and Texas A&M University.
