Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch Tour with Wine Tasting Options

68 reviews
Making all the stops on this Texas Hill Country and LBJ Ranch tour would require renting a car, if you were planning your own trip. Avoid the hassle of car rental and driving on this tour that takes you to Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park, a Texas Hill Country winery, and the German-influenced city of Fredericksburg. Plus, with guided and free-time portions, you get the best of both worlds.

We went to Blanco State Park knowing it was a small park. We didn't expect much from the trails since they weren't very long and we didn't think we'd be getting in the water because the day was pretty chilly. Our expectations were low but we were blown away. The Caswell Nature Trail turned out to be a beauty! We crossed over the dam at the far end of the trail and had lunch at the picnic tables on the other side of the river before crossing back over and finishing out the trail. It was by far an unexpected highlight and we ended up staying much longer than we intended. Great little getaway park!

Park is adjacent to calm Blanco River and has tiny dam (Falls Dam) where kids can play in water. It has campsites and screened shelters. Autumn colors are excellent.

A rather small park but it was a nice place to stop for a picnic lunch and then a short walk looping around the river. We were there on a Sunday afternoon but we had no trouble finding a open picnic table where we stopped for lunch. This is not a hiking type park but is is a nice place to stop. Certainly not a destination type place but if you are in the area worth a couple hours to enjoy being outside. We purchased a Texas State Park pass so there were no fees to enter the park and we also followed the recommendations to have park reservations.

If you like fishing or floating in the water, you might enjoy it more than we did. There is only one long Hiking trail— it is in the shade and you feel like in the wilderness. Crossing the Blanco River was fun for the whole group( adults, young adults and one teen). There are tons of picnic tables in the shade. They are not renting out floats or kayaks at this time.

Blanco State Park was a very pleasant surprise. It was beautiful and well maintained. It was relaxing and the water delightful. When in area it is clearly worth a stop.
