As a longtime Austin resident and writer for the Texas Historical Commission, Andy Rhodes knows the best ways to experience the Lone Star State. In keeping with the "everything is bigger in Texas" motif the state is famous for, Andy covers a colossal amount of sights and activities, including catching up-and-coming indie bands at Austin's South by Southwest music festival and exploring the rugged landscape of Big Bend National Park. Andy also offers unique trip strategies that help travelers plan trips according to their interests, such as Texas Food—an exploration of Southern cooking and Tex-Mex—and Overlooked Natural Wonders. With detailed information on everything from surfing and fishing the Gulf Coast to checking out museums in Dallas, Moon Texas gives travelers the tools they need to create a more personal and memorable experience.

Andy Rhodes has been living and traveling in Texas since 1994. He calls Austin home, but regularly explores the Texas Hill Country, East Texas pine forests, and Gulf Coast beaches. His favorite destination is the Big Bend region of far West Texas, where the enormous sky and rugged mountains beckon with the promise of solace, serenity, and low humidity.
Since 2002, Andy has thoroughly covered the state as editor of the Texas Historical Commission’s magazine The Medallion, offering him an opportunity to experience the Lone Star State’s compelling heritage in both colossal cities and tiny towns. In the process, he’s developed a keen appreciation for Texas’s vernacular architecture and savory barbecue.
Andy’s freelance articles have been published in Home & Away, American Cowboy, and Austin Monthly magazines, and his work has appeared in the Austin American Statesman newspaper. In 2009, Andy was named a featured author and served as a panelist at the prestigious Texas Book Festival.
Andy earned a journalism degree from Ohio’s Miami University in 1993. He lives in Austin with his wife Paula and sons Max and Daniel.
