The two southwestern states are highly populated, which could be why their economy is among the fastest-growing in the globe. California and Texas were part of Mexico during colonization by the Spanish. Indeed, a tour to these states will grant you warm weather almost all year round, but you will also get to enjoy plenty of Mexican culture and food. To add to this, the two states observe Cesar Chavez as a state holiday.

Who is Cesar Chavez

Cesar Chavez was born in Yuma, Arizona, on March 31st, 1927. His parents lost their land and hence moved to Northern California as migrant farm workers. During the second world war, Cesar served in the navy for two years. When the war ended, he returned to farming and later founded the National Farm Workers' Association in 1962. In his new role, he led the struggle for better farmworkers' rights. Cesar would go for hunger strikes to highlight his campaigns and advocacy. He soon became the best-known Latino American activist due to his aggressive but nonviolent tactics. Sadly, the labor leader died in 1993 of unspecified natural causes. To pay him tribute, the states of California and Texas observe Cesar Chavez Day commemorate the day he was born.
