5 Main Beach Getaways in Texas

Are you a Black Southern Belle looking for a beautiful beach getaway? Add Texas to that list of beach getaways and be pleasantly surprised this summer. Find tons of new scenery on the coast of Texas that is fun and a little closer to home.

For years Texas has been branded by the infamous Cowboy boots and hats. Before I moved to Texas, I thought everyone rode horses and traveled by dirt road. This misconception hides the beautiful beaches hiding in the Lone Star state. Texas has over 600 miles of the Gulf of Mexico riddled with tourist towns and adventures. Check out the 5 Main Beach Getaways in Texas and get ready for some more BSB travel.
