Things to do in Texas
If you want a little more mystery added to your trip to Texas, check out the Marfa Lights. Go about eight miles east of Marfa on Highway 90/67 to get to the viewing area. These lights can be viewed at night. Don't be fooled into thinking that these are some kids playing a prank, or some car's headlights off in the distance—sightings of these strange lights began as early as 1883, well before the invention and common man's use of the automobile. Be on the lookout for red lights that move towards you if you visit this unusual Texas attraction.
For a close encounter with Texas wildlife, visit the Padre Island National Seashore south of Corpus Christi. The winds that sweep across the shore are perfect for flying kites, and you could catch a glimpse of the endangered Kemp Ridley sea turtle. During late summer, you can even take part in a turtle release!
