Texas Hill Country

Don your Stetson and two-step over to a Lone Star paradise

A thing of beauty is a joy forever, and there’s nothing but joy to behold in the Hill Country of Texas. This part of the Lone Star State is a nature lover’s Shangri-La, but even city slickers will find enough towns in the area to become immersed in Texas-style fun and entertainment.

Great Tastes of Texas

If you’re a fan of barbecue, you’ll be in heaven in the Hill Country, home to famed joints such as Cooper’s in Llano to City Market in Luling and Salt Lick in Driftwood. But don’t be afraid to dive into German schnitzel in Fredericksburg and Los Gallos Taco House in New Braunfels.

Cool off on a Hot Day

Take a break from the Texas heat with a dip in Krause Springs, located west of Austin in Spicewood. The 115-acre recreation site is privately owned but open to the public, as it has been since 1955. Explore the 32 springs, many of which feed a manmade pool, or stroll through the butterfly gardens.

Of course, Austin, the capital city of the Lone Star State, shouldn’t be missed. The home of the University of Texas, this metropolis is renowned for its music, great food and overall freewheeling culture.

To the southwest lies Bandera, and if you listen closely, you might hear the faint jingle of spurs in the so-called Cowboy Capital of the World.

Music legends live on in Luckenbach, the tiny town where “everybody’s somebody” and where a trading post was established in 1849. Country music icon Willie Nelson brings thousands to Luckenbach for his Fourth of July Picnic every year.
