The Basics

The Texas Hill Country offers a choose-your-adventure style of itinerary, depending on your interests. There are tours especially for wine lovers, taking you right into the heart of wine production in and around Fredericksburg, home of 50 wineries. If beer is more your style, spend an afternoon sampling craft brews in San Antonio. Take a day or two to explore San Antonio on a pass that includes various activities, including the Witte Museum, San Antonio Zoo, and San Antonio Museum of Art.

President Lyndon B. Johnson was born in Stonewall, a Hill Country town near Johnson City, and his sprawling estate is open for tours that provide insight into his life and presidency. Fold your tour into one that also gives you a sample of the area’s German roots, plus a stop in Luckenbach—made famous by singer Waylon Jennings.

Domingo was a great guide, very knowledgeable. We were looking forward to the wine tasting, but it did not happen. Great tour though, not quite as advertised. Plenty of time at the stops to look and see.

Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch Tour with Wine Tasting Stop
We loved this tour. Domingo was our guide and he was great. He was on time for pick up and we were pleasantly surprised that the tour was in a van versus a bus. We were able to meet new people! We never felt rushed at any of the stops. My favorite was Luchenbach, but all of the hill country is beautiful!! We would definitely like to do this again some time.

How to Get There

When to Get There

You can explore the Hill Country year-round, as it benefits from temperate weather most of the year. Summer months are the hottest, and snow is possible in winter. Spring starts as early as February, with peak tourism months in March and April, and is a lovely time to see the wildflowers, which sprawl across fields and even along roadsides.

Is Your Dance Card Full?

The Texas Hill Country is home to some of the oldest dance halls in Texas. You can find one of them in Luckenbach, right next to the tiny post office and bar. The oldest is considered to be Gruene Hall, located in the quaint Hill Country town of Gruene (pronounced “green”).
