One of my favorite things in life is traveling, I’ve been fortunate to visit places outside of the United States and seen many beautiful places not too far from home in Texas. But I’m always interested in seeing things I haven’t seen before or trying new restaurants that I’ve never visited before. Now obviously, traveling costs money and let’s be honest most people don’t have money for some extravagant vacation. Which is why I wanted to look at some places in Texas that are fun to visit but won’t destroy your bank account. 

Before we start looking at the specific places there are some things you need to remember. Vacation doesn’t have to be crazy expensive. You don’t have to eat out at a new restaurant for every meal. Also, make sure you do your research so that way you aren’t throwing money away in what many people refer to as a tourist trap. Do the things that you enjoy the most and try to save money on those things that you really don’t care about. For example, you can get a fancy hotel room, but you’re probably not going to just be sitting in the room on vacation.

Most Googled Questions in Texas

Google has become the go-to to find out anything. In fact, Google is now a verb instead of a noun. Just about every single person has access to Google and now they have an answer to every single question at their fingertips.

In one day, Google does 8.5 billion searches. That's in one day!

With that many searches you would think people would come up with some interesting questions, but no these are the questions Texans are asking Google the most.
