It’s safe to say one of KERA‘s most popular blog posts ever was Eric Aasen’s 39 Things to Do In Texas Before You Die. People came out of the woodwork with reactions and recommendations for ventures he left off the list.
In honor of our statewide launch and Texas Independence Day, we thought it would be only appropriate to ask Aasen to share the top five. Here they are in no particular order:
- Scenic Drive in El Paso
- Texas Prison Museum in Huntsville
- Sliding down Flagpole Hill in Dallas
- The Alamo
- Texas Wildflowers in Ennis
What do you think of Eric’s list? What do you think are the essential experiences every Texan has to have? Tweet us at @TexasStandard to let us know or comment here.
