Val Verde Winery Del Rio is the proud home of the only Texas winery to survive the prohibition. The Winery is located on 100 Qualia Drive. This classic winery has a selection that varies from season to season.
Amistad Dam was dedicated in 1969 by Richard M. Nixon, former president of the United States of America, and Diaz Ordaz, former president of Mexico. Although its main goal is flood control, this beautiful dam also serves as an entry point into Mexico. Truly a must see while in the Del Rio area the dam and entry point can be located 14 miles away from Del Rio by taking Highway 90 West.
Amistad Lake was named the best bass fishing lake by ESPN after an especially amazing fishing season. Depending on the season will depend on which sport is ideal. Several highly recommended activities are: Scuba Diving (this manmade lake is one of the clearest in the United States), picnics, fishing, and sailing. Simply take Highway 90 West away from Del Rio until you spot signs for either Governor's Landing or The Diablo East Cliffs.
Laughlin Air Force Base houses a beautiful collection of planes as well as the future Air Force Pilots of the United States. Every year on Labor Day Laughlin hosts an air show complete with the Thunderbirds as well as an enlarged collection of both retired and active planes. Take Highway 90 East toward San Antonio and this intriguing attraction will be on your left.
Ciudad Acuna, Del Rio's sister city, is just across the border. Here you can visit the Hispanic way of life and perhaps pick up a souvenir or two. Many interesting shops, churchs, and restaurants border the main streets, and as the sun sets a thriving night life starts. Please remember your passports when crossing the border and exercise caution. Acuna can be found by following Spur 239 away from San Antonio.
The Whitehead Museum houses various events, exhibits, and some unofficial records. Depending on the season you can see reenactments, plays, presentations and festivals. Located on South Main Street admission for the Whitehead Museum is very reasonable.
Originally the town's firehouse, city hall, and jail, The Firehouse is now the local hub for the arts. If you have some time there are painting, pottery, knitting and various other classes that are continually offered. A gallery also resides here that often presents local art as well as nationally known artists. They are also participants in the city's First Friday Art Walk: a collection of businesses who collectively present various artists as well as wine and refreshments. This attraction is located on West Garfield Street.
The Paul Poag Theater presents performances by the community theater group (The Upstagers) as well as various talent shows, films and presentations. They are located on South Main Street.
