It's obvious that great care has been taken to preserve the history in the downtown district. The building fascias, sidewalks and streets are always clean and orderly. There are so many neat little shops to visit. I do wish Lock Drug Store hadn't moved out of it's old location but hopefully the building will be purchased by someone with a... More

Typical Historic district, but with lots of restaurants. Can only comment on a coupe - The Grace Miller restaurant- very good; old town bar and restaurant - good. We found the historic district without much problem; easier to get to it, then to get out of it

Great stores and wonderful restaurants. Take the time to walk around and visit some of these fine establishments. We shopped, dined, and the men even got haircuts. Really nice chamber of commerce with lots of information about the area.

The town of Bastrop was really pretty and quaint love the winery. Go over the Colorado River Bridge 150 , the bridge is very nice and it goes into the old town. Also eat at Bastrop River Co restaurant, great outdoor dinning along the river with great views of the Bridge.

Bastrop is nestled away like a jewel to be discovered. The local folks are super friendly and the downtown district is quaint and pleasant to meander through. The town has done a good job of protecting it's heritage. This was my first visit to Bastrop but won't be my last.

This area of Bastrop, Texas was very quaint. Every person I had an experience with was friendly. There are so many historic homes and buildings, so take the time to read the historical markers and appreciate the architecture. It was a very walkable, with so many shops and restaurants to enjoy.
