Hill Country



This picturesque village is now a resort and retirement area and an artist enclave. It is characterized by cool, shady pools beneath towering cypress trees, cascades on the Blanco River, sparkling Cypress Creek, majestic hills and an abundance of white-tailed deer. Bed-and-breakfasts, vacation resorts and youth camps dot the area where outdoor recreation is the prime pasttime.
