Winter Texan Resources and Information

While many people vacation in Texas for only a week at a time, many of our northern neighbors have grown accustomed to spending the entire winter season in the Lone Star State.

Winter Texan Attractions
Although most Winter Texans become very ‘localized’ by remaining in one area of the state during their stay in Texas, the vast majority of them drive down in RVs or motorhomes. During this trek, most of them prefer to meander around, stopping to see various points of interest. For anyone making the trip from north to south, there are a few ‘must see’ Texas attractions along the way.

Winter Texan Towns
Each year, thousands of retirement-age visitors spend anywhere from one to six months in the Lone Star State. This group of part-time residents has come to be known as Winter Texans. Over the years, a number of small towns across Texas, who rely heavily on the business the Winter Texans bring, have begun catering to this winter crowd.

Winter Texan Activities
Winter Texans have several ways to spend their time while on a long-term vacation in Texas.

Winter Texan Season
Each year from November through March, thousands of visitors from northern states spend time in Texas. These Winter Texans are more than just tourists to the Lone Star State - many are actually part-time residents. And, over the years the number of Winter Texans has grown so large that many towns and areas now stage events and activities just for them through the winter months.

Winter Texans Find Fine Fishing In Texas
Winter Texans, spending two to four months in the Lone Star State, have developed a penchant for many saltwater sportfish often overlooked by resident Texas anglers.
