Texas Hill Country

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.

Fresh Things To Do

Featured Activity

  • Wining in the Hills

    Newcomers to Texas Hill Country don't always know about the wineries, but there are more than 30 dotting the lovely hills, prompting Southern Living to speculate whether the fast-growing wine region might become the next Napa Valley. We recommend taking a rolling drive through the area's famous bluebonnets to discover eclectic wineries housed in a 100-year-old barn, a stone chateau, an Italian villa and other unique spaces that add personality to the beautiful surroundings. Here are a few of our favorites:

    Becker Vineyards. With a host of Gold, Silver and Bronze awards at wine festivals from San Antonio to San Francisco, and recognition from Food & Wine, Becker Vineyards is one of the top producers in the region, and they create a variety of wines. We recommend a visit in May or June, when the three-acre lavender field behind the winery is in bloom.

    Fall Creek Vineyards. Fall Creek is the oldest winery in the area, and it has won a number of its own awards as well as praise from Wine Spectator. We particularly recommend sampling the Meritus. As a bonus, the winery is located near the edge of Lake Buchanan, where you can launch a boat cruise to gorgeous Fall Creek Falls Lake.

    Flat Creek Estate. In addition to great handcrafted wines, Flat Creek offers space - 20 acres of vines on 80 acres of land, and a stunning tasting room with a soaring ceiling. This is a place to stay a while, enjoy a good meal and let the staff recommend pairings. They offer rustic, wood-fired Tuscan cuisine six days a week, and special brunch and three-course menus on weekends.
