    Seeing as this is a forum for Texans, I figured we needed a thread like this. What is your favorite Texas region? Panhandle, Piney Woods, the Valley, etc?

    Being from the panhandle, I am kinda partial to it. Didn't realize how much I liked the wide open spaces till I moved to Nacogdoches. After 5 years I'm starting to get a little claustrophobic. I also like the hill country. Its beautiful country.

    Tough question, it's all good!

    I love west Texas, the wide-open spaces, beautiful sunsets, watching the thunderheads build from a couple of counties away, the drier climate. Real mountains if you go far enough west. Riding a motorcycle on a two-lane road before sunup, with the full moon over your shoulder.

    The southwestern hill country - Edwards, Kinney, and Real Counties. The West Nueces River. Rugged, remote, and less travelled than the more traditional hill country.

    The Brazos "Mountains" of Palo Pinto County - difficult to believe there is somewhere that steep, hilly, and pretty in north Texas until you have seen it.

    I've only lived here for 27 years but I've been to almost every county in that time. Never seen one that I didn't like but these are my favorites.

    I've been in Houston for fourteen years now, but I've never explored any other parts of Texas.

    If God granted me the hill country I would almost thin I was in heaven. The Piny Woods is still a good place to live.

    Hill Country / Lakes, by far.

    I like the ocean as well. I consider it an annex of Texas.

    I consider Alaska and Hawaii annexes of Texas...might be a bit of a stretch though.

    I personally enjoy the area out around Kerrville. There are some nice twisty roads out there. Unfortunately I no longer have my 911 Turbo, however I do have plenty of memories of some "spirited" drives out in that direction. :D
