The fascinating Buckhorn Hall of Horns is a block from the River Walk and a few blocks from the Alamo. The antler ceiling entrance opens into a tall saloon room; the museums wrap around and continue on the second floor. A hostess assured us that visitors can still stroll the exhibits with drink in hand. Since our last visit, the collection has incorporated the Texas Ranger Museum but the wax figures depicting historical scenes have been retired.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 05/24/2015]
Just next to Oz Lane, there's of course the Tin Man. Have yet to see Lion and Dorothy, maybe they're further down the Lane? We didn't get a good look.[Chris and Meli, 05/24/2015]

- Richland, Missouri - Cave Restaurant
Restaurant in a Cave. Called the number 573-765-4554 and it was out of service! Nice experience in 2012. Was hoping to take a friend in June.[Linda Sutphin, 05/24/2015]
The Cave Restaurant was always seasonal, but it apparently never reopened in 2015. The restaurant has gone out of business before, but the cave is still there, so we'll have to hope that new owners may come in and reopen the restaurant in the future.

My Dad and I came here together while staying in Bryson City. I will warn you, if you plan on going through the tunnel, bring a flashlight! We had nothing but the beams of our phones, which only cast the faintest light on the ground. That tunnel is dark, creepy, and much, much longer that it looks from the outside.
I would also suggest bringing a camera, as there are some stunning views on the curvy drive along the road. There are parking areas so you can stop to take pictures.[Kaity P., 05/23/2015]
