Spending Christmas with my mom in Kerrville, I got to reminiscing about all of the times I’ve been to the Texas Hill Country, my favorite part of my home state.
I grew up in Texas and lived there for almost 20 years. It’s a big state and I’ve been in just about every corner of it (except down by Big Bend National Park and that’s on my list for 2018)! Listening to live music at the South by Southwest festival in Austin. In San Antonio, eating Mexican food and drinking margaritas on the Riverwalk, getting splashed by whales at Seaworld, and touring the Alamo. Visiting the Houston Underground and the Dallas World Trade Center.
While these cities and sites are definitely worth visiting, I’m a small town country girl at heart. I’m so glad my mom lives in Kerrville, in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. The Hill Country is a great alternative to the big city scene. Surrounded by the beautiful and rugged Texas countryside, with outdoor activities, live music, great food, wine country, small town vibes, historic dance halls, and the Guadalupe river, going there is tons of fun. Here are a few of my favorite things to do in the Texas Hill Country.
