5 Things In Texas That Are Insanely Big
KLAQ and Townsquare Media are giving away a trip to see Five Finger Death Punch. In honor of that, I'm going to do a few "top 5" lists for you here.
To get everyone feeling a little more "5-ish", here is a list of 5 things in Texas that prove the old adage; "everything is bigger in Texas".
The highest point in Texas is right up I-10 from us, a couple of hours from Van Horn, in Guadalupe Mountains National Park. The record goes specifically to Guadalupe Peak which stands 8,751 feet high. The highest point in the Franklin Mountains is 7,291 feet.
The biggest bar in Texas is in Fort Worth. Said to be the "world's largest honky tonk", Billy Bob's takes up 100,000 square feet and is absolutely the biggest watering hole in Texas.
We Texans take our football ... and our stadiums ... pretty seriously. The biggest one is Kyle Field in College Station which seats over 102,000 people. For comparison, the Sun Bowl seats 51,500 and the total population of Las Cruces is under 113,000.)
