Marble Falls Takes the Guesswork Out of Wildflower Hunting

By  | 

No matter what the groundhog predicted on February 2, one thing is for certain: In the coming months, the wildflowers in Texas will be in full bloom and people will be visiting the Texas Hill Country in droves to admire and photograph them. While there are several perennially popular Texas Hill Country spots to view the bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrushes, and buttercups that dot the landscape in early spring, there is one central Texas town that has taken the guesswork out of hunting for and enjoying one of the most breathtaking displays of Texas wildflowers in the state.

The town of Marble Falls, which is located less than 50 miles from Austin and 85 miles from San Antonio, boasts a spectacular crop of Texas wildflowers every year. With a backdrop of rural Texas Hill Country, coupled with quaint, small-town charm, Marble Falls is a year-round tourist destination but especially so in the spring. With a bustling downtown area, complete with delicious dining options and shopping, Marble Falls offers its visitors and locals alike a slice of Texas charm like none other.

One of the challenges of wildflower viewing in the Texas Hill Country is the task of, not only finding the best display of blooms but also finding a spot where you can safely get out of your car and walk among these flowers. To help visitors and locals in search of the best displays of Texas wildflowers, the Marble Falls/Lake LBJ Chamber of Commerce has taken on the task of displaying a popular, continually-updated wildflower map every year at their visitor center. There, visitors and locals document where they’ve seen these special displays of wildflowers and the map serves as an invaluable resource for planning your wildflower adventure in Marble Falls.
