Expect the laid-back, embrace the offbeat, and prepare for a different kind of luxury vacation in the Texas hill country. Flat plains give way here to wooded canyons, spring-fed rivers and the occasional cave. Along these hills, the more traditional Texas culture bows to the eclectic, from the unique German settlement of Fredericksburg to Marble Falls, the center of the Highlands Lakes area. Try a Texas-flavored getaway and enjoy smoky barbecue, sunshine on the lake or river, championship golf and soothing spa treatments tucked away in the hills.
A trip to the historic town of Fredericksburg is a must. Known for its fantastic shopping and dining, Fredericksburg is also the gateway to the Texas wine country and several great wineries in the area offer tours and tastings.
Floating the scenic Guadalupe River is popular here; visitors and locals will spend a few hours on innertubes being pushed by the slow-moving current. Also try canoeing and kayaking. For the best currents, head to Kerrville Schreiner Park.
In summer, Crider's Rodeo and Dance Hall is a must. A local institution for nearly 100 years, Crider's features an evening rodeo then dancing to live, authentic "Texas" music. Put on your best hat and boots and two-step under the Texas stars.
Stop by the local watering hole and one-stop shop the Hunt Store. Over time, this quaint store has become a favorite of residents and visitors. Order a burger, sit at a picnic table and soak up the Texas sun.
Make like a true Texan and saddle up. There are ample opportunities and outfitters available for a day of horseback trail riding or simple lessons. Talk to your concierge for a preferred recommendation.
You'll have golfing privileges at Riverhill Country Club, a famed private club with an 18-hole course designed by Byron Nelson and Joe Finger. After a round, adjourn to the historic mansion and enjoy a cocktail.
