Thirteen miles north of Boerne, the village of Sisterdale nests in the valley along Sister Creek. Here are five road trip worthy reasons to program Sisterdale into the GPS.

1. Tie the Knot at the Sisterdale Dancehall and Opera House

Many couples looking for a quiet country wedding venue will find that the Sisterdale Dancehall and Opera House provides a romantic solution. Branches of century-old oaks knit together a leafy rooftop along the banks of West Sister Creek creating a sacred spot for exchanging vows. After the ceremony, follow the twinkle of glittering lights to the weathered dancehall. Dancing merry-makers have been polishing the 300-year old long leaf pine floors to perfection since the 1800s. High wood-beamed ceilings and the multi-colored rusted tin roof evoke parties of the past and encourage guests to contribute their own happy memories to the nostalgia. The dancehall also books family reunions, corporate retreats, and other special occasions.

2. Stay Overnight in a Vintage Airstream

Bunk up at the Moon Pie Motel at the Sisterdale General Store which offers a family (of up to four) the chance to bed down in a vintage Airstream travel trailer. Looking for something a bit more romantic? Try the Moon Pie Mini a small new trailer that sleeps just two people. With groceries and other supplies available at the general store and a winery next door, guests have all the ingredients for a fun-filled Hill Country campout.

3. Kayak the Cool Guadalupe

Summer is the perfect time of year to spend sluicing through the refreshing waters of  Guadalupe River. Soak in the scenery and relax from the heat paddling the day away. The Sisterdale General Store offers kayaking trips that include rentals and drop-off and pick-up services. Trips are around 7.5 miles, but arrangements can be made to lengthen the cruise for an extra fee.

4. Get Discovered at the Sisterdale Saloon

Aspiring musicians looking for their big break might give the Sisterdale Saloon a try. A house guitar invites visitors to pluck out a tune and belt out a song or two. Shuffleboard, pool tables, and an outdoor fire pit complete the entertainment package. Local beer and wine beckon thirsty patrons. With Luckenbach just a stone’s throw away, who knows who could be hanging around this watering hole scouting for fresh talent.
