Things to See


Whitehead Museum : Located in old part of town of Del Rio with interesting exhibits of Del Rio past. The "research room" has been a source for many of the dive sites that you may be going on.


The Val Verde Winery: For the wine lover this is a small family owned winery that has been around since 1883.


Seminole Canyon State Park and Historic Site : This is my favorite park near Lake Amistad with hikes to the lake where the Pecos River and Rio Grande River join. Also they have very nice guided tours to the Seminole Canyon rock art.
Devils River State Natural Area : For water sports for the non-diver, hiking, biking and nature watching this is the very nice place.
