"Texas Pride" Top 5 Page for this destination Texas Local Custom Tip by Astrobuck

Texas Local Customs: 43 reviews and 47 photos


When in Texas, you will see t-shirts, signs, etc. that say "Don't mess with Texas." This can be interpreted in 2 ways: Littering (which is what the State wants you not to do); and Texas pride.

Texans are VERY proud of their state! Why? I don't know. But the culture and laws there almost make you feel like you are in another country. Try your best not to criticize or make fun. This is a VERY sensitive issue, especially to native Texans!
