Region: Hill Country
The Hill Country of Texas is characterized by rivers, parks, hiking and biking trails and, of course, rolling hills. Located in the heart of the state, this area reveals not just outdoor activities but also wineries, shopping and a wide variety of restaurants. Visitors to Hill Country can immerse themselves in rich history through various heritage sites and cultural venues, including theatres that offer live performances and other entertainment. Cultural events from Oktoberfest Fredericksburg, to the Kerrville Folk Festival, range in genres, providing enough variety for everyone to enjoy. Fort Concho National Historic Landmark in San Angelo and Fort Lancaster State Historic Site in Ozona are just two of over a dozen sites that designate and honor the area’s early western history. The pace of life in the Hill Country is known to be laid back and easy going, perfect for a family vacation or a romantic getaway.
When immigrants from Moravia found passage into Galveston, the Ellis Island of the South, many headed for the Texas Hill Country bringing a piece of their homeland with them.
