Lots of colorful oil wells in them backyards

A town between San Antonio and Houston where the locals take their riches in a humorous way. The numerous oil wells scattered in people's backyards, in front of churches, schools or behind businesses are decorated with colorful cartoon characters!
Only in Texas!!

It's pumping... the proof!!!

Luling is the red star on map!

Luling is located about 60 miles East of San Antonio, close to I10 the main freeway between San Antonio and Houston. To be exact Luling is on highway 90 which parallels and sometimes merges with I10.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Original decorated oil wells, unique, eclectic!! A must-see!
  • Cons:Smells a bit near these pumps...
  • In a nutshell:Go see for yourselves, it's nowhere else to be seen!!!!

    À visiter quand on a un coup de pompe! Dommage que le rayonnement de la France n'ait pas atteint Luling, sinon, il y aurait forcément des Shadoks! Ce sont des professionnels et ils connaissent le travail!
