Top 5 Things To Do in Texas Hill Country

The Texas Hill Country is unlike any other region in the United States. Majestic rivers, charming towns, high-end wineries, and plenty of outdoor activities give visitors and residents a near-endless list of things to see and do. It’s the perfect place for the entire family to call home.

We’ve traveled throughout the Texas Hill Country and compiled a few of our favorite aspects of this region below –

Tubing, Canoeing, and More in the Guadalupe River State Park

Nothing quite compares to a leisurely trip down the Guadalupe River in Guadalupe River State Park. “The Guad” offers countless possibilities for outdoor exploration and fun in Texas’s beautiful natural landscape. You also have several different ways to travel the waterway.

Tubing is one of the most popular activities for visitors to the state park. If you’re interested in something more adventurous, you might enjoy canoeing, kayaking, or paddleboarding. Rafting is another great way to traverse the Guadalupe River and create memories that are sure to last a lifetime.

Enjoy Some of America’s Finest Winery Experiences

Are you looking for a break from the kids and an experience to satisfy your more refined tastes? Consider taking a trip to any of the fine wine destinations in the Texas Hill Country. This region is known for having some of the finest wineries in the nation.

Dry Comal Creek Vineyards is a must-visit attraction if you’re ever in the New Braunfels, TX, area. As an award-winning company, Dry Comal Creek Vineyards produces world-class wine matched only by its picture-perfect setting. Another excellent winery option is Winery on the Gruene in the historic district of New Braunfels.

Visit Comal Springs and Landa Park

Comal Springs is one of the top tourist destinations in the Texas Hill Country. The springs are the largest in the state and American Southwest, covering over 4,000 feet beneath a breathtaking limestone bluff. Indigenous tribes used Comal Springs as a camping site for thousands of years, so keep an eye out for ancient artifacts and burial mounds.

Landa Park is home to Comal Springs and many other attractions, including the William & Dolores Schumann Arboretum, Landa Lake, and a miniature train. The park also has volleyball and tennis courts, a mini-golf course, an 18-hole golf course, and hiking trails.

Explore the Incredible Natural Bridge Caverns

Fun in the sun is great, but there’s so much more for the whole family to see and do in the shade. We’re not talking about taking a long nap or picnicking under a majestic oak tree (although you can do that, too). We’re talking about exploring the otherworldly Natural Bridge Caverns.

Natural Bridge Caverns takes you underground to tour incredible rock formations and a 60-foot natural limestone bridge. You’ll feel like a true spelunker as you navigate shadowy, mysterious corridors on the Hidden Passages Tour.

Unique Shopping and Great Food

If you’re into shopping and thrifting, you’ll love the numerous boutique stores and flea markets that dot the Texas Hill Country. Trade Days in Fredericksburg, TX, happens monthly and features hundreds of vendors. Don’t forget to stop by the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture and the Downtown Antique Mall.

Finding places to eat is no problem in the Texas Hill Country. From gorging in Lockhart (the BBQ Capital of Texas) to sampling German cuisine at Wurstfest, the region is a paradise for foodies and hungry travelers.
