Did you know you can travel the world without ever leaving the Lone Sar State?

The Houston Chronicle has published a list of worldwide landmarks that Texas has created its own versions of. For example, in Ingram, Texas, you can visit Stonehenge II and replicas of the famed Easter Island heads.

In Paris, Texas, you can visit the Eiffel Tower, and in Stafford visitors can visit an Indian temple that calls to mind the Taj Mahal.

In Groom, in the heart of the Texas Panhandle, travelers can see the “Leaning Tower of Texas,” which is actually a water tower tilted at a jaunty angle. And Houston boasts a miniature version of China’s terra-cotta army.

And then there are all those foreign cities within Texas’s borders, such as Athens, Carthage, China, Dublin, Egypt, Italy, and Moscow.
