We went to see a Concert at Gruene Hall and explore the town a little. We had a great time at the restaurants & the wineries. All the people we ran across were very nice. It was a fun quaint little town.

Many very nice shops to visit. It's a quaint little town not to be missed. The big antique shop on the corner has really nice items for sale. We made several purchases there.

Been coming to Gruene Hall and Gruene for over 40 years! Love this place. Gruene hall is not to be missed. Cold beer, good music and lots of history. Fun place, several great restaurants, the whole little town is postcard beautiful.

My husband and I stumbled into this area and a found a hidden gem. Adorable little specialty shops and restaurants. Unfortunately alot of shops closed by 5 or 6. Still worth a visit.

Beautiful grounds with trees, flowers and many different shops to browse through. It’s right next to the big parking lot. All the good restaurants are right nearby. All are within walking distance! A charming place!

Nice little historic district with a good antique show, and several other fun shops. Gristmill is neat restaurant - we'd already eaten when we found it, but loved visiting. Be sure and stand under the giant windchimes.
