So last year was the first time I have been outside of an airport one time in Houston for a layover going to Vegas. I went to TPF and was just blown away by the culture, food, people, stuff to do and weather and probably other stuff. I have lived near Lowell, MA for 30 years and 2 years in Manchester, NH.
I'm a welder and was looking at Lockheed Martin, BAE Systems, etc. Not sure if anybody has a friend/relative or is working at these places.
Anyways where is a good place to check out because I'm going to TPF again this year and last year I checked out the Dallas Cowboys stadium while wearing my Patriots attire. The Dallas World Aquarium was like x1000 times better than the Boston Aquarium and the Reunion Tower was incredible. After TPF I'm planning on going to Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and finally back to the DFW airport. I'm going back 4/4/20.
What places should I avoid because I hear the east part is fully of hardcore Republicans, Austin is full of drugs, further South looks like something from Breaking Bad? I have no clue but I'm a single 32yr old that leans mostly in the middle. I really don't want to turn this into a "oh man stay out of our state Yankee".
