Texas is a state with a wild-west heritage and an enduring love for its land, freedom, and cowboy lifestyle. Texans also take pride in the State’s reputation for warmth and hospitality.
The Texas almanac divides the sprawling territory into four regions, each with its own distinct geography and climate: the Gulf Coastal Plains, Interior Lowlands, Great Plains and the Basin and Range Province. Urban hubs include Houston, San Antonio and Dallas; all of which are home to over one million people.
Among states, Texas ranks second in the categories of population, area, and gross domestic product. No personal income tax, limited business regulation, low taxation and low housing prices ensure a booming, pro-business environment.
