Far enough from DFW to feel like small-town Texas but close enough to draw on the Metroplex’s economic vitality, Granbury offers a slate of enticing options for tourists.

“There is everything you could want in a weekend getaway—great food, wonderful little shops around the town square, theater, and the lake. … You just get a warm welcome and feel cozy.” —Deby Sebastian, Granbury

Activities range from shopping and dining in the Victorian-era downtown to water-skiing on Lake Granbury. Throw in a show at the 1886 Granbury Opera House, a round of golf, and local winery tastings—and you may need to extend your stay at one of the town’s 20-some bed and breakfasts.

For more information, contact the Granbury Convention & Visitors Bureau 800/950-2212.
