The Texas Ranger museum was the coolest though I enjoyed the tribute to DeepSea Divers as well as the rattlesnake art!

We visited the Ranger museum. It was interesting to view the history of the Texas Ranger organization. They have some nice displays with artifacts. How circumstances at the time really brought the organization into existence and bravery of the original Rangers. Definitely worth a visit.

This bar is worth a visit if for nothing else than to see all the animal heads on the walls. The drinks were okay!

My husband and I stopped in for a quick drink at the bar. I used to frequent the Buckhorn in my youth, when it was in its original location. It was really cool to see the inside again after all these years. We ordered beers...More
