More things to do, and places to go!

 

Texas is a state that is full of interesting places to visit and experience -as you may have noticed when you visited the Fly Texas, Come Fly With Me, and My Texas pages among others; but, once in a while, we become very curious about "what is outside the boundaries of the Lone Star state?!" and it is very natural that our gaze and curiosity first venture towards our neighboring states.

 

Our state is officially bordered by the following sibling states (East to West -traveling with the rising sun):

        > My trip to New Orleans

  • Arkansas (AR), with the state motto of: Regnat populus (The people rule)

  • Oklahoma (OK), with the state motto of: Labor omnia vincit (Labor conquers all things)

  • New Mexico (NM), with the state motto of: Crescit eundo (It grows as it goes)

Then we have some more very close neighbors, who do not share a border with us, such as:

  • Mississippi (MS), with the state motto of: Virtute et armis (By valor and arms)

  • Kansas (KS), with the state motto of: Ad astra per aspera (To the stars through difficulties)

  • Colorado (CO), with the state motto of: Nil sine numine (Nothing without the Deity)

  • Arizona (AZ), with the state motto of: Ditat Deus (God enriches)

 

From Fort Worth (Texas) to the Grand Canyon (Arizona) and back to Texas,

via Santa Fe (New Mexico), Blanding (Utah), and Page (Arizona) over Monument Valley

 

 

Last but not least, our state also rests on an international border to the south, and meet boundaries with an neighboring country:

All these areas present an adventurous aviation enthusiasts with marvelous and endless experiences and educational possibilities! To learn more about what each of these regions can offer, click on the corresponding location's state name to learn more about tourism in that state or country (these links will open in new windows).

 

Oh! Just incase anyone was wondering about our state's (Texas') motto, well, is it not obvious? It is simply: Friendship.
