Not sure which topic you are referring to, but as much as we Texans like to talk about our state, I'm sure we can share our knowledge again. If you could narrow down a bit, as to which part of south Texas and what kind of attractions you are interested.

We're in Terlingua now for the Chili Cook off. We will be heading to San Antonio buy this weekend.

My DW likes history, we both like the sights and sounds of a city. But Cowboy stuff would be our preference for this trip.

Thanks

Have you tried Lajitas, Big Bend National Park, or Big Bend Ranch State Park yet? All are ez day trips from Terlingua...

Don't be in a hurry. Visit Judge Roy Bean in Langtry, Texas. The Gage Hotel in Marathon, Texas. Get a steak there, or at Jett's Grill at the Hotel Paisano in Marfa, Texas. Drink lots of wine and then go see the Marfa Lights. If you don't see the lights you didn't have enough wine. Take Highway 90 through the Devil's River area. Then, head to the Texas Hill Country, Bandera, Texas. Cowboy capital of the world is what they claim to be. Eat lunch at the OST. Then, most anywhere you choose to go. If you like tourist shopping for cutsie stuff, visit Fredericksburg. Lots to see and do around San Antonio. We are packed with history. Pick up some books and check it out. Welcome, and.....Remember the Alamo!!

Unfortunately it seems OK to forget Goliad. When my wife and I visited there were a couple of other people there. And the presidio is in far finer shape than the Alamo, most of which is simply gone. I got a chill standing in the yard in front of the chapel where the Mexicans sat Fannin down in a chair and blew his brains out.

+1 For Lajitas. Maverick Ranch RV Resort is a great place to base out of. This is the most scenic part of Texas, IMO. Camping in Big Bend is good too, but the best campground at Rio Grande Village doesn't have hookups. The one with hookups is literally a parking lot.

Whatever you do, don't miss the drive west toward Presidio, on Hwy 170. It is spectacular. There is a slot canyon just off the highway that is worthy of the easy 1/4 mi hike. In the 60's while fishing on the Rio Grand with my grandparents, we would go there for naps in the middle of the day, to get out of the heat. They didn't have AC or generators in their little Cardinal travel trailer.

I don't think they forget!, Just never studied enough history, to even know about it. Sad.

A great area of Texas, we love the State Park and Mission.

Is it worth the time and travel to go to Laredo, TX?

No. Can't go across the border, or should I say you should not go across. We used to go across fairly often to shop and dine. Not any more. There are just too many "incidents", many of which don't get widely reported. Laredo is one of, if not the busiest inland ports of entry from Mexico. By my guess there are approximately 752,431 eighteen wheelers. I stay away from it as often as possible.

On the other hand, if you want a Mexico hit and your travels take you to the Rio Grande Valley, Progreso is your spot. I still hear that it is not a "hot spot" for the bad guys and numerous people go across to shop and dine. Nuevo Progreso is across the border from Progreso, Texas.

I agree. There's really nothing that would make me deviate from my path to go to Laredo.
