Every small town has its quirks, especially in the Lone Star State. College Station, a town outside of Houston, is home to an alleyway with pavement coated in beer and soda bottle caps you wouldn't dare walk barefoot on. The alleyway is a totally unique spot to visit near Houston if you're in the area and it is beloved by college students, Aggie grads, tourists, collectors, and more. 

Bottle Cap Alley is home to decades of discarded beer and soda bottle caps, and, while its origin story is not known, it's likely due to countless customers from nearby restaurants.

Now that drinking outside is banned in Aggieland, it's become tougher and tougher to keep Bottle Cap Alley alive in the same way that former visitors used to.

Though, thanks to its popularity, people still find a way!

Texans are the type to keep traditions alive, and there's no doubt in our minds that this tradition has many more years of existence.

If you plan on visiting any time soon, disposing of any bottle caps here is highly encouraged.

Students at Texas A&M University, the college nearby, are often taking grad photos, or photos for any special occasion here.

It's certainly a rare and unique photo op!

Don't forget to bring comfortable, protective shoes while walking along the bottle caps. Cowboy boots are popular gear here.

Bottle Cap Alley is deemed a "Local Flavor" after a quick Google search and can be found at 306 University Drive. 

You'll want to keep this address handy while searching for it, it is in an alleyway, after all.

You'll know you've found it when you find the big Bottle Cap Alley sign and the thousands upon thousands of old caps.
