Schumacher’s Crossing is one of the best places to swim in the hot summers of the Texas Hill Country. It is known for its crystal clear, clean water, because there are no large cities or urban areas upstream. It is often pretty crowded on the weekends because it is known for being one of the best swimming spots in the Hill Country. Schumacher’s Crossing is a great place to cool off and get some great pictures with the delightful waterfalls in the backdrop.

Crider’s Rodeo and Dancehall is a great place to go on a Saturday night! There is a rodeo every Saturday night in the summer, and a dance to go along with it. Look out over the Guadalupe River and listen to some fine Texas tunes as you two step the night away around the ancient oak centered on the dance floor.
