George W. Bush Portrait
George W. Bush, President of the United States, is a former Governor of Texas, and he still maintains a home and ranch in Crawford, Texas. Bush's portrait is hanging in the rotunda of the State Capitol Building.
Admittedly, as of this writing, the president's ratings are not as high as they could be. However, he still holds the highest office in the United States, and many people consider him to be the most powerful man in the world. If you pass by, pay your respects to Mr. Bush. If you can't agree with all of his policies, at least honor his high office.
The White House
NOTE: Sadly, Schlotzsky's Deli is either filing for bankruptcy, or looking for a buyer (to sell their assets).
This is another local favorite. This small deli restaurants make some of the best hot deli sandwiches. They've now expanded their business and make pizzas and fresh salads. What make's Schlotzsky's so special is their toasted sourdough bun. It's simply the best!
This is not too far from the city and listed as one of the oldest attraction of the area. Don’t worry, there is not much to climb, you drive almost until the top and you just have to walk the last hundred meters.
The city center is too far to have clear view, however you will have a really nice view of the Colorado river and the surrounding hills. Also, if you like it, you can also see the big houses along the river, most of them have a “boat parking”.
San Marcos is situated between Austin and San Antonio and is said to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited sites in North America. There is evidence of Native Americans living along the riverbanks from as far back as 12,000 years ago. The San Marcos River is a nationally recognised natural treasure. South West Texas University is also located there.
the honkiest tonkiest beer joint in town
A tiny little gem on Burnett Road. It doesn't get much more authentic than this. There's a bar, one pool table, a teeny weeny dance floor and an even teenier space in the corner for the band to squeeze into. It's one of a dying breed of genuine honky tonks. If you can, try and catch the rather bizzare Chicken Sh*t Sunday. You will never think of bingo in the same way again. Dale Watson is a regular here - the man! The legend! I can't rave about him enough. If you wear a coat and tie here you will probably get your head kicked in by the truck drivers in the parking lot. Put your jeans on or better yet put your shorts on.
