About This Quiz

The great state of Texas is truly a phenomenon unique in the United States of America. While most of the world doesn't know what a Whataburger is, Texans crave it on the daily. No one would think to pull over to the side of the highway for family pictures, but most Texan households have their family portraits in the beautiful fields of bluebonnets that pop up for only a few weeks every year. Most Americans cower at the thought of a garden snake, but Texans show no fear against the very dangerous rattlesnakes that pop up everywhere. 

From big hair to the bigger monuments, Texas has the biggest personality of all the 50 states. For some, Texas soil runs in their blood, but others just happen to find their home in the great state itself. Whether you were born and raised in the Lone Star state or chose to make it your home, once you have completed these 30 things, you are truly a Texan. Throw on your cowboy boots and get ready for this Texas quiz the size of the great state itself!
