Wonderfully neat little town!

Bastrop is one of those little towns you''ll want to return to again and again. Wonderful places to visit/shop/eat.

The town is very beautiful, the people are friendly and welcoming. Most of the building will have a historic sign on them give you all the info you need. Well done Bastrop, you have a great town, we really enjoyed our visit.

Looking for a quaint place to stroll and shop? Well, Bastrop TX is the place to go; shops, eateries, bars, opera house, and so much more. So, if you want a day trip or a weekend adventure this is the place to go.

A couple girlfriends and I spent nearly 4 hours here on a pleasant day. The museum was closed to add new exhibits, but we did see the original fire truck and... More

Don't get me wrong- this isn't a Fredericksburg where you are going to spend an entire day or two shopping- but over all the shops have something for everyone. High Cotton Antiques is a go-to for me to pick up quick gifts and Cripple Creek is a must stop for unique wines. Several of the stores keep up with the... More
