Craving Some Comfort in the Texas Hill Country

By  | 

Infamous for its bountiful fishing, hunting, and camping opportunities, Comfort has become a Texas Hill Country playground for outdoorsy people. Situated along the Guadalupe River, this quaint town is at the center of some of the most picturesque, scenic road trip routes, not to mention a little bit of Hill Country history that may amaze you!

Those that come to Comfort can do so via Boerne, Bandera, and Kerrville, passing by some one-of-a-kind scenery in the process. After a day of road-tripping and perhaps taking the opportunity to grab some unique selfies that can only be taken in the Texas Hill Country, those of you that are Bed & Breakfast aficionados may be craving a soft bed and a great place to lay your head. Comfort has a great assortment of accommodation you might like, and if you’re doing research ahead of time, you can visit bedandbreakfast.com for more information on local establishments.

After a restful night at a Bed & Breakfast, you’re all rested up to start off on a local wine tour. Bending Branch, Singing Water Vineyards, and Sister Creek are three wonderful wineries in the immediate vicinity of Comfort, and if you’re looking to plan a larger and longer tasting trip, visit texaswinetrails.com to plan your best route.

And for the history buffs in the area, the Treue Der Union Monument can be found in Comfort, commemorating those who died at the 1862 Nueces Massacre. Dedicated in 1866, this German-named monument (which means “loyalty to the Union”) marks the final resting place for many of the 34 people which were killed in this Civil War confrontation. It’s recognized as only the sixth mass grave burial site to be able to fly the U.S. flag at half-staff in perpetuity. Unquestionably bound to be an emotional visit, if you make the stop, prepare to be moved. Similar to the town of Comfort, the monument stands tall and reflects its history with dignity.
