If you are serious about shopping, then trust the experts at Forbes Magazine that named Houston (#1) and Dallas (#2) as the best shopping destinations in the United States.  Texas is also known as a major leisure destination for outdoor enthusiasts throughout the year and is home to the majestic Big Bend National Park. Offering over 600 miles of coastline, 900-plus golf courses, and consistently warm temperatures you can have it all when you visit and shop Texas. 

When to Visit
Although Texas in general experiences relatively mild temperatures and sunny skies year-round, there is some degree of seasonal variation. Spring’s occasional rain showers give life to miles of beautiful blooming wildflowers including the state’s official flower the Bluebonnet. Summer sees highs of 97 degrees, while fall ushers in autumn colors and cooler temperatures typically in the upper 70’s. Anytime is a good time to visit the Lone Star State when you are coming to shop as there is approximately 90 million square feet of indoor and outdoor shopping space.

Shopping and Entertainment
When you choose Texas as your shopping destination, you can shop tax free on luxury brands like Apple, Coach, Louis Vuitton, Reebok, Rolex and more.

Deals and discounts are offered year round in this shopping metropolis, however planning a trip during special shopping periods will garner even greater deals.

One of the most popular shopping periods is Black Friday Weekend. With a savings of over 50% or more off of retail pricing, it begins on the Thanksgiving holiday that falls annually the last Thursday of November. Of course all major holidays including President’s Day weekend, Easter, Memorial Day weekend and more are recognized by shopping malls statewide with exceptional savings.

Another note is that Theme Parks reduce their hours from September through May so be sure to check your venue before planning your trip.
