Delicious pies within walking distance!! About $6/slice and totally worth it. Open until 11pm on Friday and Saturday. Sometimes live music playing outside or across the street. Tip* It usually looks like there is a line going out the door, but that is only because it is pretty small inside. Line moves super fast. Plenty of outdoor seating.

Taco stand -- delicious and authentic tacos for about $1.50 each. If you are lucky, the Elotes man sometimes pops up with his stand here. If you see the man making Elotes outside - he is a local legend and worth the wait in line!

The Museum, located within the former Texas School Book Depository building, chronicles the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. Incredibly interesting and showcases the life and legacy of JFK. Good idea to book a reservation online beforehand - it isn't very big and the line can get long if you go without a ticket.
