"Even grander than the sheer..." Texas Local Custom Tip by CorvetteChic

Texas Local Customs: 43 reviews and 47 photos

Even grander than the sheer size of Texas is its cultural diversity. People from all over the globe have settled here through the centuries, weaving a vibrant tapestry of languages, traditions, and art forms. That's why Texas is like a whole other country-lots of 'em, actually.

Everywhere you look in Texas, you immediately see the rich beauty and history created by the many cultures that call Texas home. And we celebrate it the same way we celebrate everything else here: In a big way.

The Institute of Texan Cultures in San Antonio displays a rich variety of exhibits highlighting 26 cultural and ethnic groups. It gives visitors a lesson on the many cultures that influenced the Lone Star State, and the people who created Texas history. Visitors can view how different people arrived in Texas--how they lived, ate, celebrated, and other fascinating historical facts.

Texan cultures have left vast evidence of their contributions across the state. That's what makes Texas, Texas. Today, we celebrate these contributions through events, festivals, and museums. Take a look at the brief history of some of these cultures, and how important they are to the state that has been home to many people, and stood under six flags.
