DINING & SHOPPING
Each town in the Highland Lakes has its own unique shops and restaurants. You can go antiquing or shopping for the latest fashions then stop for a bite of barbecue, Tex-Mex, burgers, or whatever tempts your tastebuds. The region also has thriving vineyards as well as a long list of breweries and even a few distilleries.
ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
Go boot scootin’ across the Highland Lakes and listen to music from new and legendary Texas artists. The Highland Lakes also has a plethora of art galleries and installments to browse as well as live theater and silver screen showings. You’ll never run out of entertainment options.
The Highland Lakes is known for its golf courses — the traditional kind as well as the disc variety. Or, you can take the family bowling, to the skate park, and even practice your aim at a shooting range. Find more in our Where to Play guide.
VISIT THE PAST
