Texas was once an independent republic, and that spirit is still found in the Lone Star State to this day. The state is home to over 29.1 million people and has a median household income of $64,034. This figure puts the state in 22nd place.
The state is far more than desert; most people live on grasslands, prairies, forests, and along the coastline. The rugged hills of Texas have called many to the state, and the economy of Texas is one of the strongest in the United States.
Major employers of Texas include Bell Helicopter Textron, Lockheed Martin, SpaceX, Blue Origin, Dell, Borland, Forcepoint, Texas Instruments, AT&T, Rackspace, and many more.
Texas is an economic powerhouse with plenty of things to do. South by Southwest is one of the largest live music and multimedia festivals in the state, and thousands of people flock to Austin to enjoy the food, music, fun, and parties.
