Texas Highways Extra

In the August issue of Texas Highways

Texas Highways visits iconic Texas dance halls, fills our bellies with BBQ and a myriad of selections from Fort Worth's burgeoning culinary scene and traverses our state on the trail of El Paso-born artist Tom Lea.


Come Together

Join us for a tour of Texas dance halls and the culture, community, and history they celebrate. And whatever happens, don’t forget your cowboy boots.


The Art, Spiritual Pursuit, & Culture of BBQ

In an excerpt from the new book Barbecue Crossroads: Notes and Recipes from a Southern Odyssey, Robb Walsh explores the origins and mythology of Texas barbecue.


Dining Redefined

An innovative crop of Fort Worth chefs expands the city’s culinary scene with a focus on locally sourced foods and global influences. Antelope carpaccio, Moroccan chicken salad, or ceviche, anyone?


On the Trail of Tom Lea

El Paso-born artist Tom Lea left a legacy of paintings across his home state. Follow the trail of Lea’s remarkable artworks and lasting influence on Texas, from his hometown to Fair Park in Dallas, the Odessa Post Office, and points in-between.

Texas Highways Traveler

The month of August features a reenactment of outlaw John Wesley Hardin's death in El Paso, Westfest, held in West, celebrating the area's Czech heritage, the Wines & Vines Festival in Lubbock, and the historic Jefferson Railway, which celebrates Labor Day with tours, train rides and ghost stories.
