Texas is a big state.
Texas is big, really big. It can take hours and hours of driving to get from one end of Texas to the other. 

To make it easier to describe Texas, for tourist information purposes, Texas is usually divided into 7 regions. 

The names of the regions can vary slightly, for instance, the Piney Woods might be called East Texas. Or Big Bend Country might be called West Texas.

For our 7 Texas Regions we are going with Gulf Coast, Piney Woods, Prairie & Lakes, Hill Country, South Texas Plains, Big Bend Country and Panhandle Plains.
