“Texas: It’s Like a Whole Other Country”

"Texas: It’s Like a Whole Other Country” has been a state tourism slogan since 1988.


6 September 1989, New York Times, “Promoting Texas: Ribs to Chili” by Anne S. Lewis, pg. C10:
AUSTIN, Tex., Sept. 5—“Come to a country where the menus are in English and the food has an accent,” an advertisement says. “Visit a country where the natives are friendly and the language barrier is easily overcome,” says another. Both trumpet, “Texas: It’s Like a Whole Other Country.”
