This week on The Texas Bucket List we visit places that have had a hand in shaping history in more ways than one.
First we visit Presidio La Bahia in Goliad to explore the grounds where men died defending the great state of Texas from Santa Anna’s troops. You can even stay the night at La Bahia, just as long as you aren’t afraid of the ghosts of soldiers past. It’s a place that every Texan should visit and listen close to hear the cry of war in the breeze – Remember Goliad!
Next we grab a bite at Gold N Crisp in La Grange, well-known for their mouthwatering fried chicken but also sporting a wholesome and delicious cheeseburger. You’d better hurry to cross this one off of your list, because the owners – who served food for the infamous Chicken Ranch – are looking to retire. Grab your burger before it’s too late – and don’t forget a drumstick or two!
After we finish our last juicy bite, we stop in Bryan to jam out to country singer Austin English’s “Crazy.”
For our final stop we visit the Hand Collection of Dr. Adrian Flatt, M.D. in Dallas at the Baylor University Medical Center. From presidents to football players, the hands of people that have made some of the greatest contributions to society are preserved forever in his personal collection. We have to give a hand to Dr. Flatt, because this is an exhibit that you’ve just got to add to your list.
