1. See ancient pictographs: Semicole Canyon State Historical Park is located in the valley of Fate Bell Shelter and contains some of North America's oldest pictographs, some believed to be painted over 8,000 years ago and considered by many experts to be among the most important rock art finds in the New World.
2. Do some wine tasting: Visit the oldest winery in Texas, the Val Verde Winery which was started in 1883 by Frank Qualia, an Italian immigrant, and is still operated by the Qualia family. This small Winery is a very pleasant stop for every one. People who taste their wines come back for a second visit.
3. Go fishing or bird watching: The Lake Amistad Resort and Marina offer fifty-six and fifty foot houseboats for rent at this Amistad National Recreation Area concession. The wildlife birds and the scenic surroundings are outstanding. The fishing is wonderful also; and if one is unlucky at fishing, one can go for a walk on its hiking trails.
4. Attend a parade: The Fiesta De Amistad is a bi-national fiesta which starts from Del Rio to Ciudad Acuna, reportedly the only parade in the world that starts in one country and ends in another. The cowboys and charros are the highlights of the parade, along with the numerous floats.
5. Visit an open air museum: The Whitehead Memorial Museum opened in 1962 when the Whiteheads, who were an influential local ranching family, purchased the old Perry Mercantile building and donated it to the City of Del Rio. This is an open-air museum.
