The historic district is an interesting place to spend a couple hours. There are also a number of nice restaurants. We enjoyed Gracie Millers, but understand that Maxines and Paw Paws are very good as well.

A taste of 100 years of small Texas towns. A pleasant "shopping" experience. Nothing outstanding but friendly people, good food, and handicrafts/antis on sale.

I know some of the restaurants are open on Sunday but may close late afternoon. Download the app for Bastrop it has a lot of great information and hours of operation.
