Bastrop is a favorite town of mine. Their downtown Main St. is an old historic area and there are excellent shops hidden in between businesses. It's great for girlfriend shopping, couple's shopping, exploring, eating, etc. I'm posting pics from some shops. The bookstore has a coffee business in the back, the mocha-zebra is great. Rock'NThreads has a cupcake bakery in it and the (rootbeer float is best, then peanutbutter chocolate). Basically all the nooks and crannies have wonderful little shops. I call it treasure shopping. Jewelry, clothes, dishes, dining, etc.
