Texcation (Texas + vacation)

A “Texcation” (Texas + vacation) can be taken by anyone—even those living in Texas. Texas is the second largest U.S. state by both area (after Alaska) and population (after California).

“@Texaplex Q: What word would we use to say we did our vacation only in Texas? A: Texcation” was posted on Twitter by Hugo Lopez Jr on August 10, 2009. “I love #Texas hotels, because they enable our #family to have a #texcation & enable us to make our #txweekendscount #hilton #marriott #tmom” was posted on Twitter by Weekends Count Magazine: Education & Family Travel on October 18, 2013.


Wikipedia: Texas
Texas (/ˈtɛksəs/, also locally /ˈtɛksɪz/; Spanish: Texas or Tejas, pronounced [ˈtexas]) is a state in the South Central Region of the United States. It is the second largest U.S. state by both area (after Alaska) and population (after California). Texas shares borders with the states of Louisiana to the east, Arkansas to the northeast, Oklahoma to the north, New Mexico to the west, and the Mexican states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León, and Tamaulipas to the south and southwest, and has a coastline with the Gulf of Mexico to the southeast.

TexCation – Travel on budget
(...)
As the website speaks for itself, this is “TexCation”, more focused within the State of Texas. Most of the blog posts will be around Houston as that is where I am based in right now, but I do travel quite often to Dallas, Texas, and San Antonio and will be posting about those major cities as well.
