Wine tours, dance halls, and great barbecue: if that’s not a recipe for honeymoon success, we need to edit that. Live music can be heard throughout the Texas Hill Country on any given weekend, as well as throughout the week in special hot spots. Twirling around a Texas dance hall sure can’t be beat, and topping that off with a night of barbecue is top notch. Follow that up with a relaxing wine tour the next day, and perhaps a night in to relax while you sip on the vintages you purchased, and you’ll be raving about your honeymoon for years to come.

History, Antiques, and a Hike Down Memory Lane

Speckled throughout the Hill Country are some fantastic museums and heritage sites, as well as top-of-the-line antique stores and events. If your honeymoon is coordinated by a third-party, perhaps drop a little whisper in their ear that you want to combine your celebratory time with an annual antique show or event, a great flea-marketing experience, or a tour of history points on the Texas Hill Country map. Perhaps add some great outdoors to your concept with a hiking experience in state parks or state natural areas featuring historic details such as fossil or dinosaur findings and tracks. Your options for an actual trip down memory lane for your Hill Country honeymoon are endless.

If you and your mate have always dreamed of living “the cowboy life,” what better place for it than the Texas Hill Country? Visit the “Cowboy Capital of the World” in Bandera, offering a sampling of the cowboy life on one of several dude or guest ranches. Guests can enjoy trail rides, real rodeo action, and chuck wagon meals! And when you’re ready to whoop it up with a crowd, the two of you can step out on the dance floor and two-step the night away in one of the local honky-tonks, decked out in your best Texan western wear. It’s a wonderful way to share the experience, remain intimate, and plan for the future ahead when you acknowledge each other’s passions and forge a strong partnership from the outset. All the best!
