  • While walking along the river, you will come upon a huge statue of the late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan. You will want to take a few photos to show you were there and paid homage to the Bluesman.  more »
  • Stevie Ray Vaughn statue, sits, about the middle, of the river walk. Very nice statue, and a lot of room, to take pictures, with the statue, if so desired.  more »
  • We actually didn't know what the statue was when we visited. There's no sign of what it is in front of the statue. The view behind the statue is great and the part is a great place for taking a walk. ...  more »

  • It’s a statue. The faces always look a bit creepy to me. The location is great and the view of downtown Austin is phenomenal.
  • Pretty cool there wasn't any tourists around when I saw it, just a lot of runners.
  • Stevie Ray Vaughn. Awesome.
  • Still remember where I was when I heard he died!
  • Quintessential Austin. This iconic statue on The Hike and Bike trail near the S 1st bridge stands tall and proud enduring Austin is bathed in his omnipresent rock and roll glow. Take a picture during a pretty day, but please don't get run over by the hikers or bikers. Seriously.

Where to stay in Austin

Austin bills itself as the "Live Music Capital of the World," so it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of its hotels sell out long before the city's popular festivals. If you wish to stay near downtown's live music scene, look for package deals and book your accommodations well in advance. If downtown clubs and bars aren't your priority, consider hotels located just outside the central part of town, in comfortable areas where you won't need a car to get to most of the city's major cultural sites.
