We just got back. Yes, it is drier than some other years but it's not a big deal. The Bluebonnets were still there, just not as plentiful as last year. It's much greener in the north than in the hill country but there's much to do all over. Take a walk on the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi, check out the Fort Worth Stockyards, the WW-II Pacific War museum in Fredricksburg is very good, and you must eat at Cooper's BBQ in Llano. See dinosaur footprints at Dinosaur Valley State Park near Keene. Check out the Texas Book Depository Museum in Dallas. San Antonio's Riverwalk is always nice and it's the 175th anniversary of the Alamo so you can do them both on the same day. There's much to see in the little out of the way places that will be just as interesting.

It is hot and dry in Texas in June but still is a wonderful place to visit and live. Other than extensive work and pleasure travel we have always lived in Texas. We purchased a Motor Home in 09 and have since put thousands of miles on it and have yet to leave Texas.
I second what other have said about travel here especially akadeadeye, he nailed it pretty well.
We love the Texas State Parks. Texas has about 100 state parks, historic sites, and state natural areas and most accommodate RV camping. Sixty six have water and electricity and 23 include sewer. Thirteen parks are on major lakes where you can fish without purchasing a license.
They are spread across the seven major land areas of the state. Each park is unique and beautiful. Some are remote but many are near big cities. We usually stay several days at a park and make day trips in our toad. Our favorites include Inks Lake, Bastrop, Garner, Galveston Island, Tyler, Palo Duro Canyon, McKinney Falls (in Austin) and Dinosaur Valley. We have found nightly camping rates to run $18 to $26. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department web site is very user friendly for information and reservations.
First Monday Trades Days in Canton is not to be missed. Many RVers arrive by the previous Wednesday and stay through Sunday. Many vendors pack up and leave late Sunday and almost none are there on the actual first Monday.
You can easily avoid any wildfires and stay far inland of a Gulf storm.
You need to call 800-452-9292 or email to get a Texas State Travel Guide. Great web sites for information and links are Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas Historical Commission, and Texas Commission on the Arts.
Come see us, Hugh

Hi, We are currently touring Texas right now for the first time, and loving it. We are just outside San Antonio in Boerne. Even though it is dry and they are in a drought, I wouldn't let that stop you. It is still a beatiful place. It will always be too hot, too cold, too dry, too wet, too stormy, too snowy, to not visit. If you wait for the perfect "time", you may never get to see it.

I Know! we have been in touch with friends who say that only 2 of 245ish counties aren't currently burning. So sad. Apparently the state is so rural these fires start in remote locations and there aren't enough resources to fight them all. It will be years before the wildlife comes back.
