Exploring the heart of the Texas Hill Country should be on everyone’s bucket list. There’s no lack of things to see and do in this majestic part of our great state!

The tiny towns and two-lane roads, which drift out west of Austin, make up the heart of the Texas Hill Country. There are unexpected gems everywhere you look, some which many native Texans have yet to discover. The country sides are full of winding rivers, waterfalls, and creeks that flow through the bald cypress trees. Don’t miss out on seeing the beauty of glistening lakes cupped in limestone canyons, and the many rustic German towns with such fine names as Fredericksburg, New Braunfels, Boerne, and Kerrville just to name a few.

Here are some places which should be added to your Texas Hill Country bucket list:

1. Wrap your lips around some genuine Texas Hill Country BBQ.

In Texas, barbecue is more of a religion than a meal — and we take it very seriously. Eating authentic Texas BBQ is a definite must, and the Texas Hill Country is not lacking in places to choose from. Don’t forget the beans, coleslaw, cornbread, and all the sides. No matter where you travel in this beautiful part of Texas, you’ll come across some wonderful places, many which have been around for decades. Make sure you’re hungry when you go inside. These Texan folks love to spoil their customers and have them leave with smiles on their faces and their bellies full.

2. Stop and smell the wildflowers.

Normally, all highways, freeways, and roads serve a practical purpose: primarily to get you from point A to point B. However, in the the Hill Country, that’s not always the case. Driving through this part of Texas you’ll view the most beautiful wildflowers, vistas, rolling hills, large wide open pastures, lakes, and unusual and often mysterious pieces of nature which has been around for centuries.
