Take a Road Trip Through the Texas Hill Country

Summer is the perfect time to hop in the car and discover the sights and sounds of the Texas Hill Country. From fields of Texas bluebonnets, to one-of-a-kind Fredericksburg wineries - Texans know how to embrace the good life. Here's our guide to the perfect roadtrip through Texas.  When you road trip, getting there becomes a huge part of the vacation experience. Though you could hop on the interstate and head straight to the Texas Hill Country, there's never been a better time to take the scenic route. Plan to tack an hour or two onto your drive to La Cantera and see the landmarks that you have yet to cross off your Texas road trip bucket list. 

From Houston

If you live in Houston, you probably know that the quickest way to arrive in San Antonio is to hop on I-10 East. What you may not know is that you can meander through several small towns that only add about 30 minutes to the trip—stops not included. 

pastries at a bakery

Hruska's Store & Bakery

Find this bakery in small town Ellinger, just off Highway 71. This is actually an authentic Czech bakery, so you'll be able to try unique sweet and savory treats like kolaches.

stained glass windows in a church

The Painted Churches

The towns of Dubina, High Hill, Ammannsville, and Praha each have their own painted church. See one or make a point to see all three elaborately painted interiors. 

old wooden barn

Winedale Historical Complex

Step back into the nineteenth century through Winedale's five homes, a one-room schoolhouse, a rare four-square barn, and more, each decorated for the period.

antique store

Junk Gypsy Store

Junk Gypsy rose to fame via HGTV, and has since put tiny Round Top, Texas, on the map. Shop antiques, cowboy boots, unique wearables, and more.

From Austin

Spend just under two hours cruising down I-35 and you'll find yourself in the Hill Country in no time. But if you make a day of the trip, you'll have all the time you need to see lakes, parks, museums, and more—some of which don't even require a detour.

Canyon Lake

Taking a dip is only one of many things you can do on this detour. Take in the views at the overlook or swing by Comal Park for a picnic.

Natural Bridge Caverns

Explore the world below Texas at Natural Bridge Caverns. Tour the caverns, learn to pan for gold, or make your way through an outdoor maze.

Blue Hole Regional Park

The Blue Hole Swimming Area is the central fixture of this regional park. Go for a hike on the trails, then cool off in the Guadalupe River. 

From Dallas

Dallas and San Antonio are separated by just a four-hour stretch of I-35. Though you can get to the city without leaving the interstate, there's also something to be said for taking a detour or two.

Hidden Falls Adventure Park

Snag a pass and go for a ride at Hidden Falls Adventure Park, which offers meandering and exciting trails for dirt bikes, full size 4x4's, ATVs, and UTVs.

Magnolia Market at the Silos

Swing through Waco for a stop at their Magnolia Market and a pastry at their Baking Co. You may even find inspiration for a post-vacation home makeover. 

Around the Hill Country

The Texas Hill Country gives new meaning to "life's a highway." Enrich your getaway to La Cantera by exploring the sights and sounds that make the Hill Country so unique. Wineries, rolling hills, ranches, and more set this piece of Texas apart from other rural areas. Amid all the relaxing, be sure you also make time to venture off the resort to explore. 

Texas Wildflowers

Texas is home to more than 5,000 species of wildflowers, and thanks to Lady Bird Johnson and the launch of the Highway Beautification Act, you can take in the splendor of these blooms from the comforts of your car. Try Farm Road 1323 in the spring for some of the state’s best wildflowers. 

Discover Texas Wine

Over 50 unique wineries got their start scattered throughout the region’s scenic countryside. Here, you can sip everything from Italian varietals to Rhone-style wines.
