Shortest highway in Texas runs through this cemetery and is measured in feet, not miles. Numerous heroes are buried here and this is a MUST SEE!

Visiting the Texas State Cemetery was a welcome respite during a fast paced vacation. Walking through the grounds, looking at the beautiful stones and monuments (911 Memorial was powerful) was like revisiting history. Looking over the soldier field was a poignant visual of the losses.

Yes parking is available inside the cemetery but it gets crowded sometimes. Best to Park outside and walk in. Get to see more that way. Well worth the walk.
