Del Rio: Cowboy Carnival

Texas is one of the older states. This isn’t a problem as it has a rich history and is a cultural landmark in the south. I loved living there and one of my favorite places to live in was the city Del Rio.

Del Rio feels likes a cool cowboy movie. The mix of Spanish and southern culture here has culminated in a cool blending that is sure to make many tourists happy. this city has so much to do and one of my favorites is the museum. The food in the area is also good. You can get southern favorites like barbeque or go with delicious Mexican food that is super authentic and healthy. living there I enjoyed going to places like the winery where you can see authentic wine get processed.

The shopping areas just cover the essentials but this town I feel is for those that prefer I more laidback and simpler lifestyle. It would be a great for those looking to raise a family.
