The cowboy is an icon of American history, and nowhere is cowboy culture stronger than it is in Texas. For decades through the 1800s, and even into the 20th century, the vast, open chapparal (shrubby landscape) of the USA's second-largest state was an outdoor home for those who made their living on the cattle trail. Even today, cowboy culture persists in Texas. Hats, boots and chaps are appropriate daily attire, rodeos litter the year's events calendar and dude ranches offer visitors a chance to experience a real home on the range. Whether you want a full-on cattle ranch immersion, to try your hand a bit of two-stepping in an old west saloon or just want to pick out a fashionable pair of Justin boots, we've got you covered.
