Texas Highways magazine

Designated the “Official Travel Magazine of Texas” by the Legislature in 1975, Texas Highways has evolved into an award-wining, multimedia brand, reaching over two million Texans and savvy travelers monthly. Top writers and photographers showcase the best of Texas’ people, places, and wide-open spaces. Destinations, attractions, and business mentioned in each issue benefit from the coverage.

Generations of Texans have come to rely on Texas Highways, for good reasons: rigorously fact-checked, a focus on authentic experiences, curated coverage, non-political and positive editorial content, and lots of practical tips to get a trip started.

Frequently featured categories include state and national parks, urban centers and small towns, cultural art venues, statewide events, historical features, accommodation and dining establishments; weekend getaway adventures; photographers and their work; unique Texas products and shopping opportunities; nature tourism excursions; and scenic landscape photography.


Texas Highways produces four monthly digital newsletters that provide additional Texas travel coverage, including popular web stories, road trips, upcoming events, exclusive content, and special discounts. Find out more at Texas Highways newsletters.
