Long before the Urban Cowboy '80s, Texans were doing the two-step, Schottische, and Cotton-Eyed Joe. They're still doing those famous Texas dances—along with line dancing and moving to a little hip-hop and rock, too. If you're still young enough to boot scoot and want to see how real San Antonio "kikkers" dance, you've got to go to Cowboys. This Texas-sized hall sees some of the biggest names in Nashville and Texas country music on weekends. Cowboys also has a hot house band, an indoor rodeo arena with a mean mechanical bull, free dance lessons, and DJs. Cowboy hats are optional, but boots are a good idea—you don’t want anyone to step on your toes while you're learning to dance Texas-style. The San Antonio location of Cowboys is on NE Loop 410, which is a bit of a drive from downtown, so visitors might opt for a taxi or a limo. I've even seen young people pull up in stretch Hummers here, too.
