The Hill  Country of Texas

Bandera,     Kerrville and Fredericksburg

Often described as mystical, the Hill Country of Texas is a geographic area encompassing some 10,000 square miles of rugged beauty along the Balcones Escarpment in south-central Texas.

Known for its massive limestone and granite outcroppings; clear, spring-fed streams and rivers running through verdant valleys; brilliant displays of wildflowers in the spring and abundant white-tail deer; Texas-size cattle, goat and sheep ranches; and small towns founded by European immigrants in the mid-1800's, the Hill Country of Texas has provided an oasis of comfort and renewal for generations of Texans.

Centrally located in the very heart of the Hill Country are the towns of Bandera, Kerrville and Fredericksburg, which make them great bases from which to explore all of the wonders of the Hill Country of Texas. The proprietors of dude ranches, romantic bed & breakfasts, rustic cabins, luxurious country inns and modern hotels/motels will welcome you with Texan hospitality.

Major air gateways to the Hill Country of Texas are the international airports in San Antonio and Austin, while Interstate Highways 10 and 35 provide convenient access for cross-country motorists.
