Lovely downtown area with great shops and restaurants right on the Colorado river. It is the most historical small town in Texas.

I loved all the little shops around the downtown area. There are plenty of different places to explore and plenty more places to take a break for refreshments,lunch or dinner! Great to explore alone or with friends. There are several great eat places and more places to sit and relax to watch life pass by also!

Main Street Historic District is only 2 blocks long, but packed with wonderful shops featuring creations by local artists, and restaurants to tempt the most discerning of tastebuds! I take all our visitors to Main Street. I highly recommend a visit...you'll love it.

It's great to take some time and walk the downtown area and visit all the specialty shops and have lunch in one of the many great little restaurants. The downtown area has done a great job in keeping things rolling in our little town.

Loved this little river town & their patriotic pride. You can enjoy eating, shopping, learning about their history or just sitting by the river and relaxing.

The Museum is very nice and had lunch at Anita's and it was wonderful. The stores offer a variety of things by local artist as well as the usual. Wine stores are available also. The old homes are beautiful and well maintained.
