May is a great month to celebrate anything, but first and foremost is Mom! Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8, and what better way to celebrate with her than to spend a day together in the Texas Hill Country!

A Sunday Drive

The wildflowers are at their most colorful at this time of year, and a Sunday drive through Burnet, Fredericksburg, Johnson City, Lampasas, Llano, and San Saba will take you through vineyards, orchards of peaches and pecans, and small German-settled towns with everything from old fashioned general stores to funky little roadhouses! Cruise calmly along as Indian paintbrushes, bluebonnets, daisies, and more dot the countryside.

Speaking of Vineyards

Several great wineries peddle their award-winning wine wares in the Texas Hill Country, and if you didn’t know this… where have you been?! The Hill Country is now known as the second largest AVA (American Viticulture Area) in the country, and with 46 stunning wineries (yes, some even look like you would imagine from the movies!), Mom can not only be celebrated just one day of the year, but 46 of them if you like! (just kidding, all 365 works best.) A wine tour, tastings and several special events can be taken in on Mother’s Day in the Texas Hill Country, so why not visit www.texaswinetrail.com to learn more and maybe plot your route!

Easily one of the best places to find anything from barbecue joints (mmm… beef brisket, and pork ribs) to chicken fried steak, home-cooking, Cajun cooking, and some great Greek, can be found in the Texas Hill Country. Mom will love a meal cooked over mesquite coals for up to 10 hours (just about the amount of time she was in labor with you…remember?!) not to mention homemade pickles, macaroni and potato salad, and just maybe she’ll top it off with a Shiner beer. The gang’s all here in the Hill Country, making sure Mom has a ball!
