Things to Do in Texas
The famous roadhouse-style barbeque steak, brisket and ribs are only part of the story at Billy Bob’s Texas Honky Tonk, dubbed the world’s largest honky tonk.
More than 6,000 people can squeeze into Billy Bob’s to watch concerts, hit the dance floor, dine at the restaurant, play the casino and catch the live bull-riding shows.
There’s a gift shop, live bulls ridden by real cowboys, bucking-bull photos, boot-scootin’ dance instruction and arcade games.
Billy Bob’s is also a renowned venue for country music stars, from Garth Brooks to Merle Haggard. The club’s won the Country Music Association’s Venue of the Year award eight times.
For sports fans visiting Dallas, Texas, one top attraction is Cowboys Stadium, newly renamed the AT&T Stadium. There are many reasons to visit, some of which include watching a Cowboys football game, taking in the stadium’s impressive architecture or taking a tour.
The first thing you’ll notice when arriving to the AT&T Stadium is its retractable roof, which is the one of the world’s largest domed sports structures and the largest single span roof structure. Here you’ll also find the world’s largest retractable end zones. And when the roof is closed, the venue becomes the largest enclosed NFL stadium ever built. As the saying goes, “everything is bigger in Texas.”
This is your first indication that AT&T Stadium is more than just a sports arena. While the stadium itself is a work of art with its stylish concourses and a facade of soaring arches and canted glass, you can also find an impressive contemporary art collection inside.
Midway Island is over 4,600 miles from the hills of Fredericksburg, Texas, but you’d never know it from visiting the Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site. This is the town where Chester Nimitiz was born in 1885—a man who go on to lead the Pacific Fleet and accept the symbol of Japanese surrender at the end of World War II. Though the Texas Hill country looks nothing like the blood-stained atolls and islands of the Pacific, the museum that bears the Admiral’s name is the closest thing civilians get to feeling like they’ve actually been there. Set inside the refurbished walls of the historic Nimitz Hotel, the Admiral Nimitz State Historic Site is part of the National Museum of the Pacific War that spans seven of Fredericksburg’s acres.
