Jump to: navigation, search

Alvin is in the Gulf Coast of Texas. Home of the Pitcher Nolan Ryan. It's about 20 miles southeast of Houston, at the intersections of SH-35 and SH-6.

Get in[edit]

SH-35 business cuts right through down town. From I-45, exit Telephone Rd. and go south until you see Alvin.

Get around[edit]

Car. Only car. This is near-rural Texas!

See[edit]

  • Nolan Ryan fans be sure to catch the statue of him. The Mcdonalds on highway 35 at the south end of Alvin is replete with Nolan Ryan garb.

Do[edit]

Buy[edit]

Eat[edit]

Pecans fallen from the trees. They're addictive!

  • La Tapatia (At SH-35 business and E. House.). A small taqueria chain with affordable Mexican food with a nice environment! $5.

Drink[edit]

Brazoria county is recently a "wet" county. Previously, it was "damp" which meant you could only buy beer with low alcohol content. The availability is still somewhat lacking, so consider going to Galveston County for a better selection.
