At this time of year, we often reflect on what it is we want to accomplish and do in the days and months ahead. We look to opportunities for travel and new experiences, promising ourselves to make good on the chances we let slip through our fingers in the past. Why not take the opportunity to make 2017 the year that you finally “get away from it all” and travel through the Texas Hill Country? Instead of daydreaming and bookmarking websites that will forever remain as “favorites” on your browser instead of favorite family memories or solo road-trip fun, we’ve got a list of a few unique spots to travel to this coming year that will help you clear your mind, clear out of your vacation rut, and get you into the hills – the Texas Hill Country that is! And then you can scratch one more (or five more) thing off of your 2017 bucket list.
2017 Bucket List: 5 Texas Hill Country Trips
1. San Antonio in Spring

If you’re looking to experience a little bit of everything, why not check out San Antonio in the springtime? Not only is the infamous Riverwalk the most romantic, colorful, and beautiful place to stroll or take a boat ride, but the downtown core is loaded with touristy things to do, it’s easy to get around (walk, cab, or trolley) and the weather is perfect. Market Square is a great place to tour, your food choices are fantastic, and there’s also the opportunity to catch a Spurs game (they have plenty of home games in the later part of March/early part of April). If you like concerts, the AT&T Center plays host to several genres (check their schedule prior to planning your visit), and there are a number of hotel options ranging from economy to luxurious, providing all the amenities you could possibly need.
