Attractions in Buda

Buda’s motto is “breathe easy here,” and the city provides the places to do just that. If antiquing is your thing, there are a handful of shops downtown with all kinds of rare collectibles at bargain prices. The city is also famous for its amount of parkland per person; fortunately these lovely green spaces also have the quality to match the quantity.

Entertainment, live music, karaoke, arcade games, and world-class racing can all be found in and around town. If you just want to enjoy some good food and drink, Buda has you covered. The following are some of the top attractions in Buda.

There’s no telling what rare items you’ll come across in this unique shop that derives its name from the year its building was constructed. Part mercantile and part museum, the store holds books, old records, kitschy election pins, action figures, hardware, and much more.
