As the saying goes, everything is bigger in Texas. So, it should come as no surprise that there are lots of big homes throughout the state that can accommodate large groups when you’re planning an event. There are far more Airbnb and Vrbo properties for big groups in Texas than most other states, which is good to know if you are planning a family reunion, corporate retreat, specialty workshop, or gathering of old friends.
