Visit Texas with the Help of Google Maps
TravelTex, Texas Tourism's official Web site, is a great guide to things to see and do in the state. The site also includes a handy Google Maps based trip planner.
TravelTex features over 400 cities and thousands of activities to do for visitors to Texas. As users browse the site they can add the viewed attractions and events to their own trip planner and create a personal itinerary. Users can add events, locations, day trips and even driving tours and specify the day they wish to visit each location.
Each item added to the itinerary is also added to the user's personal trip planner Google Map. The map then provides a handy guide to all the bookmarked locations and events.
