It is difficult to define Texas as a whole because the state is really diverse. So, I will divide the state into regions by culture and geography:

East Texas: Basically anything to the east of I-45 is East Texas...Culturally similar to other southern states. Huge amount of confederate flags and rednecks. Everyone's obsessed with high school football, Baptists rule everything. Geographically, It's flat with some sprawling Pine Forests in the Northeast. Climate is hot and humid. There's three seasons here: Summer, Almost summer, and Spring. The main cities are: Beaumont, Texarkana, Lufkin, Tyler, Nacogdoches, and Port Arthur.

Central Texas: Beautiful Country, abundance of rolling hills and gorgeous streams. Often ignored by other parts of Texas. Schlitterbahn(voted best waterpark in america) is there. Climate is wonderful, it's warm and dryer than other parts. Major cities: Austin, Temple, Kileen, New Braunfels, and Waco.

North Texas: This mainly Includes the panhandle which is mainly similar to the midwest. It's really flat with almost nothing but farms and grass. There is beauty close to Palo Duro Canyon. Major Cities: Amarillo and Lubbock.

West Texas: Arid but beautiful. This is the sterotype that most people have about all of Texas. It is mainly a part of the Chihuahuan Desert(which is not a dog) and is really beautiful around the Big Bend areas. Hot and Dry, this region is similar to the Southwest. Major Cities: El Paso, Odessa, and Midland.

South Texas: Mainly farming and ranching areas. Not much here but the Rio Grande Valley. Huge influx of Mexican Immigrants. King Ranch is here which is bigger than Rhode Island. The main tourist attraction here is South Padre Island which is the only place in Texas where you will find clean beaches. Major Cities: Brownsville, McAllen, Corpus Christi, and Kingsville.

Urban Texas: Includes the areas of Houston, Dallas-Ft. Worth, and San Antonio. These areas have a culture of it's own and don't normally conform to the areas they're in.
Texas differs in each region of the state.

A state of the south-central United States. It was admitted as the 28th state in 1845. Explored by the Spanish in the 16th and 17th centuries, the region became a province of Mexico in the early 19th century. Texans won their independence in 1836 after a gallant but losing stand at the Alamo in February and a defeat of Santa Anna's forces at the Battle of San Jacinto (April 21). Denied admission as a state by antislavery forces in the U.S. Congress, the leaders of Texas formed an independent republic that lasted until 1845. Austin is the capital and Houston the largest city. Population: 17,059,805.

The Lonestar State, The State that still believes that criminals should be punished, Home of the Wataburger, home of Southern Hospitality, HTown, And Everythang thats bigger and better.

Home to Dr. Pepper, several modern and well respected singers, activists, and the like, Sam Houston, and other great men and women before him, numerous plantlife and animals, and a few horrid idiots who give the rest of us a bad name-ie: George Bush.

The biggest and baddest state of them all(15 states can be put into Texas and we'd still have 1000 miles left) where everything is bigger and much better than places such as California. Home of a Ranch bigger than Rhode Island,the home of trunk poppin, Dr.Pepper,home of the first word spoken from the moon which was Houston,home of swangin on 84's and vogues, chopped and screwed music, SA Town, D Town, and H Town which are all 3 in the top 10 most populated cities in the U.S.
The Lone Star State was the only state that was its own country, and the only state worthy of even making a definition of.

If you aint a Texan, you wish you were.
1.Texas is the home of the playas and pimps.

2.Damn, Texas sure is a better place to live in than California...

3.God bless Texas.
