The Stars at Night are Big and Bright...

As a teen I had the opportunity to spend 2 weeks out of my summers in the great state of Texas.

Dallas, to be exact.

I remember the West End, the Book Depository, carriage rides, and sweltering heat. I loved the heat, and I loved spending my afternoons in the pool.

I never really thought of visiting other places in Texas, but as I got older, I realized that Texas offered so much more than Dallas.

This year is on tour. They're bringing they're bring a multi-sensory Texas-style experience on the road.

Their current stop? The Great Minnesota Get Together!

That's right friends, you can currently find Texas on Tour at the Minnesota State Fair, which runs 8/25 - 9/5.

Visitors will be able to explore Texas virtually! Have your picture taken in front of the Alamo, the Dallas skyline, Palo Duro Canyon, or Sea World! Experience a virtual kayaking trip down the Rio Grande, or discover Texas by participating in some Texas trivia!

The best part is, Texas on Tour is also entering visitors into a sweepstakes for a trip for two to visit Texas. However, you don't have to visit the Minnesota State Fair to enter - you can simply visit Texas on Tour and enter the sweepstakes online!
