This week on The Texas Bucket List, we travel out on the range, munch at a modern saloon, and freshen up at a barber shop with some animalistic observers.
Because mom’s always saying we need one, we get presentable at the Trophy Barber Shop in Baytown under the watchful eyes of the taxidermied wall residents that make this barber shop a hunter’s hair salon dream come true.
For lunch we grab some grub at the Phoenix Saloon in New Braunfels and this 1871 bar boasts bragging rights and the claim to fame for creating chili powder, and their chili burger is worth the trip to the Comal River city.
Next singer Kimberly Dunn performs her country song “High Horse” at the Grand Stafford in Bryan.
Our last stop transports us back in time at the Hueco Tanks State Park & Historic Site in El Paso. You’ll want to take a road trip not just for the rolling West Texas views but the hundreds of years’ worth of history harbored in these hillsides. From 1800s graffiti to ancient water god drawings, Hueco Tanks still serves as the hot place to stop as you travel west across the Lone Star State.
