Thinking about heading to Texas in autumn 2016? Whether you are planning on embarking on tailor made holidays starting in Amarillo and ending in Las Vegas or Santa Monico, if you are heading in the direction of Texas in autumn 2016, it’s more than worth experiencing the Texas State Fair.

Held annually every year since 1886, the Texas state fair starts on the last Friday in September in Dallas, and runs on right through for a full show stopping 24 days. Until that is, even the locals have started to get weary of eating deep fried Oreos while taking in the sights, sounds and aromatic scents of the fair, from the vantage of the fair’s own dedicated gondola ride.

Of course, stereotypical USA overindulgence isn’t something which is going to be on everyone’s holiday bucket list of potential travel itineraries. However, the Texas State Fair is the most highly anticipated of state fairs in America. Even better, the fair represents a once a year opportunity to sample almost every facet of American culture.

From professional American football, to car shows, amusement park rides, rodeo events and world class entertainment line ups, the Texas State fair allows people to experience America in all its pomp and flamboyancy, just without having to visit everywhere in America to do so.

The best part? With our self drive tailor made holidays, you will have the flexibility to visit the Texas State Fair for as little or as long as you like. Moreover, if following route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica, adapting travel itineraries slightly in order to sample the State Fair can make for a truly spectacular build up to finally heading further north ready for your once in a lifetime grand canyon experience.
