Ohio State Fair

Texas on Tour shared the past 10 days with some fun-loving Ohioans. We reunited with some old friends and made a lot of new ones throughout our stay. 
It was great to welcome repeat visitors back to our home away from home. One of our long time pals, Scott T. from Columbus, Ohio, stopped by Texas on Tour for the second year in a row. After he came by last year, Scott decided that he needed to see gorgeous San Antonio for himself and planned a much needed vacation to the city. "If it wasn't for seeing Texas on Tour at the Ohio State Fair, I might not have had the chance to visit San Antonio's beautiful River Walk." We're so glad Scott took us up on some travel advice and that he'll be returning to Texas for another visit this fall.
Texas on Tour also welcomed a local judge from Ohio. When we asked her the verdict, she said Texas on Tour was the best exhibit she had seen at the Ohio State Fair! In 2013, she plans to accompany her daughter to the American Bar Association's mid-year meeting in Dallas. Sounds like the perfect opportunity to mix a little bit of business with pleasure, if you ask us! The mother-daughter duo has plans to spend their vacation exploring the NorthPark Center in Dallas and the historic Fort Worth Stockyards. With her FREE Texas Travel Guide in hand, she left the tour happy and excited to plan their getaway. 
Thank you Ohio for the hospitality; you are welcome to kick up your boots in Texas whenever you'd like! We are now off to share Texas on Tour with the great state of Iowa. Get ready Hawkeye State. Texas on Tour will be at the state fair from Friday, August 10th through Sunday, August 19th. 

See ya'll there!
