Hill Country. . . the heart of the Lone Star State. Although many
people are surprised there are hills in Texas, it has been a favorite
spot and often well-kept secret of Texans since the pioneer days.
Tree-shaded rivers wind beneath limestone bluffs, water rushes over the
rocks to form small waterfalls, lakes with lake vistas are around every
corner, and woodland wildlife such as deer and endangered songbirds
blend in the environment. There is no question why the Texas Hill
Country is listed in the Most Scenic Drives in America by Reader's Digest.
The Texas Hill Country offers activities and interests for everyone. If you enjoy water sports, there is water, watereverywhere.
If you like to fish, use watercrafts, swim, waterski, camp on or near a
river or lake, wakeboard, or even scuba dive, it is all available.
There are over 10 state parks with locations along the lakes or rivers.
The region is in the eastern portion of the Edwards Plateau with the
boundaries of the Balcones Fault on the east and the Llano uplift to
the west and north. The hills consist primarily of limestone and the
terrain is often punctuated by a large number of limestone boulders and
cliffs. There are several caves in the area.
The Colorado River and several of its tributaries, including the Llano and Pedernales Rivers, cross the region west to east.
Historically, the area has been influenced by Spanish and Central
Europeans (German, Swiss, Austrian, and Czech), which has flavored the
area's food, beer, architecture, and music. Especially noticeable are
the German towns of New Braunsfel and Fredricksburg.
Recently, much attention has been given to the Texas Hill Country Wineries.
The area is considered the second wine destination in the nation, with
award-winning wines being produced. Wine tasting is available at all of
the wineries, and you will often have the experience of enjoying
artists, musicians, crafters, and chefs as well.
The Texas Hill Country offers unparalleled diversity from beautiful
wildflowers in the spring, lake fishing at its best, hiking trails,
tubing down a river, to enjoying a picnic. The weather is mild much of
the time which allows for a long season for exploring the Texas Hill
