This is what Austin is about. One cannot visit Austin without seeing Stevie Ray. His music and free spirit personify the creative and free spirit of Austin Texas. Take a stroll and enjoy the great weather!

I've stopped at Stevie's spot several times because it's just perfectly placed! The lake and city in the background! Nicely done!

I like Stevie Ray Vaughan and his music. It was cool to see the statue. The beauty of the trail is the better attraction for me anyways.

I am not a die hard fan of Stevie Ray Vaughan but visiting the beautiful Riverside Park on a sunny March day in Austin and viewing the statue honoring his musical legacy is a must see!
