It's cool to see in passing or if you happen to be in the area but it is nothing to go out of your way for. It does sit across from an amazing cafe so I recommend you visit that place!

It’s a good place to stop, aside from the statue, there’s a nice coffee shop beside the statue so I guess we can appreciate it better by sipping a nice coffee al fresco!

Busy road with nowhere to park to take a picture. Family let me out to take pictures and quickly go back into the car.

It’s a statue of Willie Nelson. There’s a plaque explaining why Willie? Stop on your way to see the bats on Congress Avenue bridge but don’t make any more effort than that.

Not much to say but it’s a nice statue. It’s on the corner and you can’t miss it. There is a plaque on the wall behind it. Read it but didn’t find it very informative about the man himself.

Austin and Willie Nelson go together. This statue is very well done and should be seen if in the area.

We included this on our self-created roadside attraction tour of Austin (murals, statues, etc.), and ended up just doing a slow drive-by since there wasn't any parking in the immediate area and ultimately it didn't look like it was worth stopping for. Was still worth...More

I really liked it. I read somewhere people think it doesn't look much like him, but we are talking about a man with a career than spans 60+ years. How can any work of art provide a realistic image when our looks change dramatically in...More

I'm a huge Willie fan & was disappointed in the statue. A nice statue, but it didn't look like him. My experience at the Moody Theater was fantastic though & I will definitely be going back. Maybe the statue will grow on me.

Interesting statue in Austin that allows for a great photo op but they had started hating it off getting ready for a concert tonight. But we were still able to see him!
