Tourism

Adding to all of these unmatched features, Alice is also a great place for tourism. The city is spotted with retailers of all kinds, an eclectic mix of restaurants and plenty of comfortable places for lodging. Recreation is a major draw, as are the local museums and historical sites.

The South Texas Museum features exhibits on the history and traditions of the region, while the Tejano R.O.O.T.S. Hall of Fame Museum celebrates the area’s rich Tejano culture. The museum honors various Tejano artists, musicians and other figures in entertainment. Another museum of note is the Third Coast Squadron Museum. While it is still in the midst of establishing its collection of artifacts and memorabilia, the museum welcomes special private group tours.

Alice also features two statues—one of Jose de Escandon, the man who explored and settled the South Texas region, and the other of Lucien Flournoy, an active member of the community. And don’t forget to stop by the world’s tallest cement water tower, as designated by the Guinness Book of Records in 1976. Visitors can view the 165-foot tower, built in 1926-1927, in downtown Alice.
