Plan a Highland Lakes visit with 101 Fun Things

Read about what you need to know to build a campfire in the Highland Lakes when you pick up the newest issue of 101 Fun Things to do in the Highland Lakes magazine. The 2021 fall/winter edition is now on newsstands and countertops, in visitor centers locally and across the state, and online in a digital flipbook with 84 pages of 101 fun things to do when you visit Burnet, Llano, and Blanco counties.

Other features are a “visit” to the Texas Butterfly Ranch, a three-hour decent into the depths of Longhorn Caverns, and a wine-tasting road trip.

This issue has all you need to know to “Fire It Up” at a firepit in a local, state, or national park in Central Texas complete with instructions on the safest way to extinguish the flames. We also have the original s’mores recipe as developed by the Girls Scouts sometime around 1925. Flip to the back pages for a family-friendly (but still scary) campfire story as told by professional storyteller Donna Ingham of Spicewood.

For those who want to visit the Texas Butterfly Ranch, if you are in the Highland Lakes, you are standing in it. Find out just exactly what that means and why fall is prime time for migrating monarchs.

Travel reporter Dakota Morrissiey dons a lighted hard hat and knee pads to take the Wild Cave Tour at Longhorn Cavern State Park. Know before you go what it takes to spend three hours in the only abrasion-formed cave system in the United States.

On the other end of the tourism spectrum, 101 reporter Brigid Cooley spends a weekend wine tasting at three of the many wineries in the area. There’s more to explore, but you can get a sample of what you’ll find when you pick up your copy of 101 Fun Things to do in the Highland Lakes magazine.

You’ll also get a comprehensive list of events throughout the fall and winter months, including Christmas lights displays, holiday parades, snow days, and more.

Look for our red magazine racks and places like restaurants, chambers of commerce, hotels, retail stores, and more to pick up your free copy.
