Saying you’re spending your summer vacation in the Texas Hill Country is sure to have some side effects. You might witness envy (some of your neighbors could turn a greenish color), and your Instagram account just might suddenly gain double its followers due to recent posts including #TexasHillCountryTime or #YouHateUsCauseYouAintUs. Why? Because you’ll be spending time in the heart of Texas!

The Texas Hill Country is a lot of things, but dull isn’t one of them. Offering adventures for outdoors people, art and literature locales and events for the intellectual, and accommodations that suit everyone from the thrill seeker to the romantic, it’s tough to find a better place to spend a summer vacation. And, honestly, why would you look elsewhere? The bi-ways, FM roads, and the many small towns that fan out west of San Antonio make up this beautiful region where you’ll find some diamonds-in-the-rough when it comes to places to visit, things to do, and sights to see. You’ll also find winding rivers, shimmering lakes, and fields billowing with native plants. That’s not to mention the age-old trees that have seen the transformation of the rustic German towns that dot the landscape. Fredericksburg, Boerne, New Braunfels, and Kerrville are just a few of the great places you can visit that can easily find you spending entire days of your vacation wishing this was more of a permanent move.

Grab yourself a beer (or your beverage of choice), turn up the tunes, and make a splash in your summer vacation by tubing in the crystal-clear, spring-fed rivers of the Texas Hill Country. One of the most stunning spots for tubing is on the Frio River, where a number of outfitters can get you geared up and floating your cares away in no time! Other settings to soak up some sun include the Comal, Guadalupe, San Marcos, and Blanco rivers, where you can experience the beauty of the region.
