Overview

Texas is never boring. The variety of things to see and do, sniff and taste, wonder at and run from would take a lifetime to enjoy. Good Times in Texas covers the well-publicized attractions but also goes off the beaten path to find other people, places, and events that make this state unique. For instance, there's a piece of apple pie preserved in helium at Amarillo's Helium Monument. Poteet boasts a 7 foot strawberry. San Antonio turns an annual river-cleaning project into the Riverwalk Bottom Festival and Mud Parade. The tallest cross in the Western Hemisphere, near Amarillo, is visible from 20 miles away. And you can really clear your sinuses at Terlingua's annual chilli-cook-offs. This humorous guide to where the fun is begins with a chapter on some of the strange stuff that can be found across the state.
