What's the best thing about living in Texas? Well, the short answer is "everything". I might be a little biased because, well, I am born and raised in Texas. The truth is, you don't even have to be from Texas to appreciate and enjoy the awesome things that the Lonestar state offers. But, if you are from Texas, you know these are some of the greatest things on the planet to enjoy.

As you will see below, we Texans love the finer things in life. I'm talking from BBQ to beer, to sunsets and bluebonnets and everything in between. There's just not a lot of things that we don't like in the Lonestar State. And, unlike most states, you don't have to leave Texas to see beautiful scenery, experience the finest cuisine, or just hit the road and go to every Whataburger in the state.

Everything is bigger in Texas, and so is our passion for these things.

I also took to my Facebook page and asked some of you what your favorite thing about Texas was. Of course, I knew that things like Whataburger or Blue Bell ice cream would come up, but some of your answers included no income tax, Texas Road House, ZZ Top, and Pantera - all great things about Texas for sure.

Oh, and one more thing. Texans love to clap. In fact, I'll prove it right now. The stars at night, are big and bright! You just clapped three times didn't ya?
