Seeing the statue as you drive by is so cool but being able to go and stand at his feet and look up at him is amazing. If you like history at all or just like really cool things I recommend stopping at the visitor center and getting a look at the interesting facts associated with the statue and Huntsville.
If you want to see the biggest ever statue of Sam Houston, stop here! It's so huge you can hardly get it all into the same photo! The area around the statue is well-cared for and clean. Many, many tourists are here to see the statue. It is a good place to stop and appreciate the history of Sam Houston and the state of Texas.
