Everything really IS bigger in Texas!
The highways are so gigantic, I wish I had a panoramic lens to really show the scale. We met my aunt in Houston and spent a few days before driving to Austin. We visited lots of neighborhoods, each with a different feel.
The food was amazing, as were the bright colored homes and signage. I wish Boston had colors like these!

...................I really liked Houston, but I have to say, I couldn't live there unless it was in an area like Montrose or the Heights. You really have to drive everywhere! I really enjoy walking places, and it's so spread out you basically drive between two downtowns.
Next post I'll put a list of the places we went :)
