– Owner and Editor-


Hi and welcome to GoExploreTexas.com!

I started this site a few years ago after trying to find someplace new to go one weekend with my wife and kids. Texas is a huge state and there’s so much to see and at times, it can be overwhelming.

I created this site as a place that allows you to quickly search an area of Texas and discover a new adventure. And it’s not just a list. We pride ourselves on exploring each destination personally and then delivering that information back to you.

Do you like to hike or camp? Are you more interested in the hundreds of small town Texas festivals that happen every year? Will your kids like it? We want to provide you with all of the answers to these questions and more.

In the future, we’d love to add our version of the ‘Best in Texas’. From barbecue to amazing places to stay, we’d love to compile the list for you.

Our goal is to add more destinations as we visit them…that’s why you don’t see destinations like Big Bend on the site yet. You won’t see it on the site until we’ve personally been there.

We don’t want GoExploreTexas to be just another list of places in Texas. There are dozens of sites that do that, listing hundreds of places that you probably aren’t even interested in visiting. Instead, we want to provide you with a vetted group of destinations that you’ll want to visit if you are interested in the best that Texas has to offer.

My ultimate goal? To turn this site into a destination for other writers. If you want to contribute some of the amazing places you love in Texas and share them with others, contact me and hopefully we can work together in the future.

I appreciate you visiting the site and I hope you found an amazing new place to explore this weekend. Good luck and Go Explore Texas!
