Perhaps the most iconic attraction in Lampasas is its display of numerous murals throughout downtown. These public artworks dramatically transformed the formerly bare walls of businesses in the area. Many stop for a photo opportunity with these displays, and a visit to a few or all 13 of the murals should be included on your itinerary of Lampasas attractions to see in the area.

2. Hancock Springs Free-Flow Swim Area

Though some Lampasas attractions, such as a dip in Hancock Springs swim area, are just for the summer, you’ll still want to make plans to fit them into your schedule somehow. This could include a later visit to this area of the northern Hill Country. While other swimming pools may reach 90 degrees or warmer in the hot Texas summers, Hancock Springs’s pool remains at a consistently cool 69 degrees all year long. It’s the only free-flowing sulfur spring pool in operation, and it’s been an attraction since 1911. If you intend to visit, this pool only operates during the summer on Thursdays through Sundays.

3. Hanna Springs Sculpture Garden

For a trip to a museum while also getting a chance to see the outdoors, check out the Hanna Springs Sculpture Garden. This annual public art display changes each year, and it’s a great chance to expose your family to works of art without dragging them to a “boring” museum. The artwork ranges from quirky to thoughtful, but it always impresses visitors. Check it out in Campbell Park, near downtown Lampasas.
