Summertime in Dallas is bright , vibrant and extremely hot with temperatures averaging 98 degrees F daily. Texas culture is rich, and full of history ranging from the "Wild, Wild, West" and "Authentic Cowboys" to deep Mexican roots. Its geography, climate, people, neighboring regions, and size make it far too diverse to be classified in any other way than one truly of its own -- a complex culture called "Texas". This is one of the many reasons Texas is considered "Texas-Country".
The culture of Texas can at face value be described as a meltingpot of "Southern" and "Southwestern" features, with pockets of ethnic group towns and settlements in many locations. The large geographic nature of Texas has also played a role in its culture.
It is a place of island communities from Germany, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Mexico, Africa, southern Anglo populations, and historic tribes of Native Americans. Its culture is a complex blending and separation of the cultures different people originally brought with them to Texas. Its African American community contributed to the blues through various artists, and it is the only place in world where its past musicians such as Adolph Hofner sang Western Swing Style music in Czech and German.
Food is big in the Lone-star State.
