More than Cowboys

This was the message that Texas has been trying to get across to Britons for some time. And now it seems to be paying off because last year, for the first time, Britons were the largest international visitors to the state beating the Germans into second place. There I knew a few of you would that like that last phrase. By the time 2010 ends as many as 145,000 of us will have visited the lone star state.
So how has Texas bucked (sorry, a cowboy word just crept in there!) the trend and persuaded us to go there when overall visits to the US have been down and our favourite destination, Florida, has been hit more than many?
