We had a lovely bike ride along the river and came across the Stevie Ray Vaughan Statue. Even though it was blistering hot, we enjoyed the route, it would be more enjoyable in slightly cooler temperatures. recommend it for all cycling enthusiasts

I was so excited to be able to see the Statue of Stevie Ray Vaughan! It was a real surprise to see it and hear the stories of his prominence in Austin and Austin's love for him and his music,

Quirky and a bit difficult to get to because of the parking you'll appreciate it after you're there. The waterfront park where it's located is beautiful with great views of Austin and lots of activity on the waterfront. Definitely a must see in Austin.

For fans, this is almost hallowed ground. It's a great statue and the backdrop of maybe half the photos taken in Austin! Good place to sit and people watch. Easy to get to just west of South First Street bridge.

Grabbed a photo here for fun while on a run. Stop by if you are a fan - just a photo spot and good time to remember to switch up your playlist to include more Stevie.

Nice place to stop for a pic while biking along Ladybird Lake. Easy to access, clean, well-maintained area.

We actually happened on this during a bike trip around Lady Bird Lake. I'm not a huge fan, so I'm sure it would have been a different experience for me if I had been. However, this status is very well done. Make sure to check...More
