In a State where everything is "bigger and better," it shouldn't come as a surprise that Texas is the world capital of capitals. Find out just how great we are! Discover the many world capitals in Texas...


Well, sure - Austin is the undisputed capital of Texas. It wasn't always that way of course. There have been several state (and Republic) capitals down through the historical years of Texas. But there are probably more capitals in Texas than you know!

In fact, in a land that loves its bragging rights, Texas can boast of being the world capital of - well, capitals. Come on - you've seen the roadside signs and the freeway billboards. Texas is the capital of just about everything that's good, from strawberries to watermelons, from wild boars to wind energy.

Where else can boast of the best goose hunting, the largest pair of cowboy boots, the best pecan, the most flavorful peach, the home of square dancing, the tallest capital building in the Americas, the Rose Capital of the World? In Texas, you see, we've got a handle on most everything. And if it's worth something, chances are good Texans can (and do) lay claim to it.

Of course, the self-proclaimed title isn't without merit. Things are just bigger and better in Texas. Haven't we been trying to tell the world that for years? Take a look at some of the Capitals of Texas and see if you don't agree, Texas is the ultimate capital of capitals in the world!
