Fun to walk around the historic district. Several choices of places to eat. Food was good and well priced. Plenty of parking in lots nearby. Easy to get to from Highway 71.

Boring and nothing was open. Shabby buildings.Had they been open we might have visited. But we really weren't there for that purpose.

Loved the super step back in time feel of this area. Very clean & neat. Unique shops, old time drug store with a soda fountain & ice cream bar, good food stops, & friendly folks.

There Tues afternoon after Memorial Day and the historic downtown was totally dead. Numerous shops empty or going out of business. Numerous other shops closed at 3pm even though there signs indicated they should be open at that time on a Tuesday. The visitor center is worth a visit. It is new and has a nice museum on Bastrop history.... More

We weren't there for Bastrop excitement, just a conference and dining. With a 4 year old in tow, we had a great time at the park and a short visit at the local library.

Many old buildings in this small town and quite a few that time forgot. We stopped in an ice cream shop/pharmacy and a couple other old timey places.
