Texas Hill Country

To our family, the Texas Hill Country comes down to rivers and rodeos (and Groupon coupons), but your family might like peach-picking (in Stonewall) or banjo music or steam punk festivals or airshows or horseback riding or fishing or bird/bat watching or fossil hunting or caving or camping.

In case you didn’t already know–and I didn’t until just a few years ago, despite growing up in Houston–the Texas Hill Country really is accessible from Houston, and you don’t have to drop $200 to $300 to go to Seaworld, Six Flags or Schlitterbahn for your kids to have a good time. Load up your CD players with Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash, grab your kids (and their Kindles of course), and go explore the while the rivers are still there!
