Moving to Texas
Congratulations and welcome to the Lone Star State. Texans are friendly people. In fact, our name comes from the Caddo Indian word tejas, which means friend. We are very proud of our state - and you will be, too. There's an old saying among naturalized Texans, "I wasn't born in Texas, but at least I got here as fast as I could."
Texas' size is matched only by its diversity - people of different cultures coexist and several different industries flourish. You'll also find a variety of food, music, languages, entertainment, employment opportunities, professional sports, and outdoor activities.
