    We are the LoneStar State. We are famous for our Southern hospitality, unpredictable weather and Bluebonnet fields. Thousands of tourists migrate here every spring to watch them bloom. I've lived here my entire life and it's still a breathtaking sight! The San Jacinto Monument is 570 ft tall, the tallest of it's kind in the world. It marks the spot where Texas won its indepence from Mexico in 1836.
