1. Try some boot scoot'n at the Broken Spoke. No ferns or Perrier water around this honky-tonk. As James M. White, owner of the Spoke, likes to say: "This is the real deal!"
    Since 1964, legendary greats, such as George Strait, Willie Nelson and Earnest Tubbs (to name only a few) have tipped their hats from the Spoke's stage.
    Here's where you'll find the best Chicken Fried Steak, the coldest beer and great live music. Grab your best gal and come have some fun at the Broken Spoke.

  4. The magnificent Texas State Capitol was built in 1888 using "sunset red" granite queried just 50 miles from the site. The capitol was paid for with an exchange of land in the Texas panhandle. As Texas Capitol Visitors Center Tour Coordinator, Elizabeth Garzone, quips, "everything is bigger in Texas including the building's height which is actually 15 feet taller than the U.S. Capitol."
    Sign up at the Treasurer's Business Office on the first floor for a free 45-minute tour of the capitol.
