When I used to think of Texas, I thought of great barbecue, cowboy boots, and some awesome waterholes. The beach was not what came to my mind. But after our Texas winter retreat of full time RV living, the beach is now a great Texas memory for me. Growing up in Tennessee, if we went to the beach that usually meant Florida and I would say most people do think of beautiful beaches when you think of the sunshine state. I am going to say though, Texas has some great beach spots.
