An Australian friend will be in Texas over the 4th of July holiday in 2012 and wonders where he can have a real American experience. As I've only ever been to Austin (great if you know people there) and Dallas (for the State Fair), I did an internet search and came up with Jefferson as a possible place. However...is it possible to get there from Dallas without a car? Actually, is it possible to get anywhere in Texas without a car?? Any other suggestions for an Australian arriving in Dallas on July 2 to have a great 4th of July experience?
