~ The Size of Texas ~



Texas is 790 miles long. The red on this map represents the area that is within 790 miles of Texas. That is to say, if you are within this red zone, you are closer to somewhere in Texas than other parts of Texas are…


Looking for a few more,
Beaumont is closer to Tampa than El Paso.
Brownsville is closer to Mexico City than DFW.
Texarkana is closer to Atlanta than El Paso.
Corpus is closer to Cuba than Denver.
Austin is closer to New Orleans than El Paso
Downtown Fort Worth to downtown Dallas is longer than the Gaza Strip is long, longer than the English channel.
Dallas to Houston is nearly the same distance as Paris to London.

  1. Texas is definitely huge, isn't it? We're close to Houston and we drove to the State Fair one year. We met people who drove "all the way from Oklahoma" to see the fair. Then we realized WE actually drove farther than them to get there! Lol! Going from one end of the state to the other is a long haul. We always laugh because you can drive for days, it seems and STILL be in Texas.

    Blessings to you,
