This time of the year, with a constant stream of house guests and the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, nothing is more anticipated than a quiet, couples weekend away.

Located less than 50 miles from Austin and 85 miles from San Antonio, Marble Falls is centrally located and makes for an easy and scenic getaway in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.

Depending on what you’re in the mood for, the dining options in Marble Falls range from fun and casual to fine dining. Rae’s RBar and Grill, located in the heart of the historic main street district, offers Texas Ranch Style food, with a New Mexican flare, while local favorites Bill’s Burgers and Darci’s Deli serve up stick-to-your-ribs burgers and sandwiches to power you through a day of shopping on Marble Fall’s delightful Main Street.

For an evening meal out, consider trying a new face on the Marble Falls restaurant scene: Del Rio Comida Deluxe, a new 5-star rated restaurant in the heart of Marble Falls’ historic district. Don’t let the name fool you, this isn’t your typical greasy taco joint.

Marble Falls is home to a number of award-winning wineries. Among them, Perissos Vineyard and Winery in nearby Burnet offers 100 percent Texas-grown and handcrafted wines. This small, family-run vineyard and boutique winery is located amidst acres of vines in the Texas Hill Country.

Also on your list of vineyards to visit should be Torr Na Lochs Vineyard and Winery. The name Torr Na Lochs translates loosely from Gaelic to “hill over lakes,” which is fitting, as this winery sits high above the Colorado River valley, overlooking Inks and Buchanan Lakes, offering sweeping views of the Texas Hill Country.

If you need intense relaxation, a trip to the spa might be number one on your to-do list. Hush Luxury, located in nearby Cottonwood, and Sana Vida, located in Marble Falls, both offer a tranquil sanctuary where you can restore, heal, learn, and open your mind to all possibilities.
