Grab a sweet or savory kolache at any of the bakeries throughout Hill Country. Hop on down to San Antone and grab an amazing taco. If you want something smoky, meander through those hills and stop at one of the many amazing BBQ joints. When you’re all done eating everything you can, wash it all down with a wine from a local winery or a beer from one of the many breweries.
