Visit Menard This Fall for a Spectacular Treat

By  | 

There’s no better time of the year than right now to visit Menard, Texas. Fall is in the air, and this little town in the Lone Star State has some of the best pumpkin picking farms and fall pumpkin patches around. Take the whole family to pick out the perfect pumpkin to make into this year’s jack-o-lantern.

And, this part of the Texas Hill Country is known for having some of the most amazing scenic views. Crisp, juicy apples are just right for the picking in the Menard orchards. You can pick your own right off the tree or buy them already put into baskets.

Menard, Texas is a city located on the banks of the San Saba River. This means there is some of the best fishing around. The river is full of catfish, panfish, and bass just begging for a baited hook to be thrown down. Look into The Whispering Water Ranch and Resort and Pascall Shuttle Trip beside the San Saba River Adventures. They help tourists find all the good places to fish.

There’s also an abundance of wildlife in the area and it’s the best season to hunt for quail, turkey, dove, and deer. There are over 400,000 acres available to hunters. Hunters are encouraged to visit Schwartz Exotic Game Ranch, Hat Creek Cabins, Predator 1 Outdoors, Umbrella Ranch, and Whispering Water Ranch and Resort for helpful hints and any other information you may need.
