"South Side isn't so bad after all"

If you find yourself on the South Central side of Houston, there is plenty to do if you can make your way to the Old Spanish Trail.
The OST (as the locals call it) extends from near I-45 on the east side to Main street on the west side. I used to do some work at a recording studio at Almeda and OST so I became familiar with all the food joints up and down this major road. And once you go west far enough and hit main street, you have even more choices of things to do and ways to spend your money.
The commuter rail makes stops near the OST so getting downtown is a breeze. And, if you are at the Reliant Center watching a football game and you decide to stay in the area, the OST has plenty more to offer.
OST or Old Spanish Trail is a good starting point for those on the south side trying to stretch out their day. Follow it to Main and there is no limit to what you can find to kill a Sunday afternoon.
