South Texas Plains Region

The South Texas Plains, which occupy the southern tip of Texas, may be separated from the rest of the state roughly by a line drawn from Del Rio eastward to Austin and from Austin southeastward to Corpus Christi. This is a region characterized by considerable variety. Climatically, the South Texas Plains region is subhumid to dry. Topographically, it consists of the three major divisions characterizing the Coastal Plain at large: the Interior Inner Lowlands Belt, the Coastal Belt, and the Central Dissected Belt. Spanish explorers, missionaries, soldiers,  and others traveled across the grassy plains and brush country in the early 1500s and 1600s. Many wars were fought for Texas Independence upon these lands. San Antonio is the largest city in the region.
