With the temperature on the rise after this mild Texas winter, it’s time to start planning the best spring break yet. And what better place to spend it than the Texas Hill Country?
Fredericksburg: Complete with gorgeous scenery, wineries, and shopping, it is a great place to take a small road trip to. Best known for being the wine country of Texas, there are many wineries and even a few breweries that are a must to visit. If spring break only consists of a weekend and you’re unable to take the week off, this is a destination to keep in mind!
Rio Frio Fest: This is your place for floating and foot tapping. Filled with artists that are dominating the red dirt sector of the country music genre. Big names include: Cody Johnson, Cory Morrow, and William Clark Green–all names we know and love. These three have been around and played their fair share of smaller gigs that have helped propel them to the top. Take on the Frio River and Concan a few months early this March to test the waters.
Wimberley Zipline: Nestled between San Antonio and Austin lies the town of Wimberley, which is also home to a fifteen mile long zipline. This is a great way to suit the inner adrenaline junky as one soars over the canyons and creeks that make the hill country as unique as it is.
San Antonio: Home of the Alamo, haunted hotels, and the River Walk, San Antonio is sure to have a little bit of entertainment for everyone. Not only are the tourist attractions a must see, but there are also many other world-class attractions. The San Antonio Zoo is historically one of the best zoos in the nation and Fiesta Texas will satisfy all those roller coaster cravings.
Dripping Springs: A cute little town that is definitely a hidden gem with a reputation for incredible stargazing. This is a sure way to spend quality time with your friends or family on the camp ground underneath the big and bright stars that make Texas skies one of a kind.
Austin: Whether you’re a history buff, an outdoorsman, or a food junkie (or anything in between), Austin will have something for you. Rainey Street is famous for laidback bars and a strong food truck game. The Barton Creek Greenbelt is almost 13 miles of hiking along a natural creek and you can enter at a trailhead minutes from downtown Austin. And, of course, you can always tour the Capitol, explore the Bullock Texas State History Museum, and look on at the Governor’s Mansion.
