Yes I have been to Texas but I would love to see more
(Heather Kipf 12:50pm October 16, 2015)

I've always wanted to visit Texas, but never had the
opportunity. My Cousin lives outside of Denver.
Quite a few years back, my Mother went on a trip, and
had a chance to visit the Alamo. She was deeply moved
by her visit, and brought me back a dress that she
bought me, as well as a top. I still own them, and
they mean a great deal to me, because she's now passed
on, but I still own these items, knowing where she
bought them, and how much that trip meant to her. For
now, I have to just put that trip on my bucket list,
for my Husband has health issues, and isn't up to a
trip of that length. I always dream about what the
people and food would be like, though, and being a
people-persob, I know I'd have a great time!! I'm
looking forward to reading your latest book. Being a
former transplant myself to where I'm now living, to a
rural area, I can relate completely!!

I have not had the chance.

Jennifer Beck 11:34am October 16, 2015)

I drove through once, but did not stay and see the sights.
Colleen Conklin 12:53pm October 16, 2015)

I've never been to Texas, but I'd like to.
Joanne Schultz 3:28pm October 16, 2015)

I been to Texas a few times. I loved the Dallas/Fort Worth,
great shops. I also liked San Antonio, with all of the
history, the River Walk and fabulous restaurants. I would
love to go back.
Barbara Ryan 3:43pm October 16, 2015)

I've been in Dallas briefly, but I would love to see more of the state.
Kelly Powell 5:20pm October 16, 2015)

Yes, I have been to Texas, mostly just driving through, though! We did have
a nice vacation in San Antonio so that's my favorite area!
Jeanna Massman 6:46pm October 16, 2015)

I was in Dallas airport once for about 2 hours, but that's it.
Jen Barnard 8:11am October 17, 2015)

Yes, I've been to Texas several times . I would say Dallas / Fort Worth would be my favorite. I haven't been to San Antonio but sure hope to go sometime .
Joan Thrasher 11:28am October 17, 2015)

Let me correct my statement. My cousin lives outside of
Dallas. lol I was thinking of another relative I have
outside of Denver. So sorry.
Peggy Roberson 4:07pm October 17, 2015)

I went to Dallas a long time ago, to visit a friend who had
moved down from NY. I actually have a cousin down there
now, so would love to go back.
Sharlene Wegner 6:07pm October 17, 2015)

I have been to the Dallas area and the San Antonio area. I
like the Riverwalk, Alamo and the rich cultural history of
the area with the missions, art and local food. Also love
seeing the bluebonnets along I35.
Maryann Skaritka 11:49pm October 17, 2015)

I've never been there. I have family there now, so I would love to go.
Zara Heflin 2:56am October 18, 2015)

Tammy Thayer 11:08am October 18, 2015)

Alas, I have never been to Texas - but I HAVE read about Texas in books! (That's called grasping at straws, LOL!)
Elaine Seymour 5:09pm October 18, 2015)

Yes I've been to Texas but only drove through it. It's a beautiful state.
Bonnie Capuano 11:24pm October 18, 2015)

Never been to Texas, maybe I'll do some traveling after college.
Lisa L. 11:31am October 19, 2015)

I have been and I love it. Favorite city so far is Austin!
Denise Austin 12:56pm October 19, 2015)

Jeri Dickinson 6:43pm October 19, 2015)

I have never been to Texas, sorry. I live up north,close to Canada.
Deb Pelletier 9:16pm October 19, 2015)

I've spent very little time in Texas, and I find the two-lane 60 mph highways
fairly terrifying, but there's also something about the countryside of central
(north and south) Texas that leaves me feeling very American, in a good way.
There's not much that does that. We stopped at the McIlhenny site on the
way back from New Orleans this last spring, and we loved it.
Mary Ann Dimand 9:57pm October 19, 2015)

Sounds good - would like to visit Texas someday.
