But Texas is more than just size. It is a state of mind. From the early cowboys and adventurers to modern-day business
entrepreneurs, Texas offers a unique lifestyle that is characterized by a self-reliant, fun-loving, hard-working spirit.
A popular slogan sums up the attitude of many: “I wasn’t born here, but I got here as fast as I could.”
The major cities
dominate the Texas landscape, each offering a different lifestyle. Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston are large commercial centers.
Dallas is home to some of the nation’s largest corporations and emerging businesses. The Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport,
with almost 2,000 flights a day, makes North Texas one of the world’s most accessible areas.
Houston is riding the current oil
boom with many of the global petroleum companies headquartered there. Austin, the state capital, is home to both state
government and the University of Texas. Considered the prettiest part of the state as the gateway to the Texas Hill Country,
Austin is the center of Texas’ high-technology industry. And it is one of the best places to party as the home of the
burgeoning Texas music industry.
Texas is a special place that daily attracts thousands of
newcomers who come to work, learn at one of its outstanding colleges
and universities, play golf year-round and relax in one of its many
fun-loving cultural venues.
