If you love art, check out the evening Fourth Friday Llano Art Walk held on even-numbered months. The next event happens in August, which has the theme of White Linen Night. Dress in your coolest summer linen and enjoy sipping on cool beverages, shopping at area stores, and browsing through works from local artists. Because this event only lasts from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., plan to arrive early to the historic downtown square. Since the last of these events occurs in August, make this one of your must-do Llano activities.

Though located just 20 miles outside of Llano, Fall Creek Vineyards feels like an isolated bit of California wine country. Make reservations for tours of the vineyards and winery, or stop by for one of two tastings. This vineyard is close to Llano, so you can count the tastings as tours among the many Llano activities you can enjoy before the end of summer.
