Texas - Houston & East Texas (Chapter)
This is the Houston & East Texas chapter from Lonely Planet's Texas guidebook.
It's not the Southwest, it's not Tex-Mex and it's not really the Deep South, either. A holy trifecta of the three, perhaps? The easternmost notch on the nation's Bible Belt? This part of Texas is a bit of an enigma and it likes it that way.
- form some opinions on postmodern art at Houston's Menil Collection
- wander the shady trails through fragrant piney woods at the Big Thicket National Preserve
- get spooked in tiny Jefferson - it’s rife with ghosts and haunted hotels, but the locals are friendly as all get out
- restaurants & accommodations
Coverage includes: Houston, Clear Lake Area, College Station, Bryan, Huntsville & around, Northeast Texas, Nacogdoches, Historic Sites & Parks, National Forests, Jefferson, Caddo Lake & around, Tyler and Longview.
