Spring break in Texas is the perfect time for a getaway to the beautiful Texas Hill Country! Whether you want to take in the breathtaking beauty of the outdoors or enjoy some local shopping and dining, the Hill Country has something for everyone. Here are three unique places to visit for a family-friendly spring break.
Step Back in Time in Historic Fredericksburg
If you need to step away from the hustle and bustle this spring break, Fredericksburg is the place for you. Take a step back in time at one of the many historical sites and museums in town, like the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site. This park is located in the heart of President Lyndon B. Johnson’s country home, known as the ‘Texas Whitehouse.’ We also recommend taking a stroll along Main Street to enjoy the historic buildings and local shopping. When you’ve had your fill of museums and shopping, there are plenty of restaurants and tasting rooms where you can experience some of the best local food and wine while giving your feet a break.
Enjoy a Night Under the Stars in Dripping Springs
Thanks to the city of Dripping Springs’ residents, this Texas Hill Country destination is one of the few cities in the world to have earned the title of Dark Sky Community from the International Dark Sky Association. You can see stars in Dripping Springs that are nearly impossible to see in other cities. Reserve a campsite at the Recreation Plantation and pack up the tents, sleeping bags and telescopes to experience stargazing like nowhere else in Texas.
Go for a Dip in Wimberley
Spring break marks the beginning of longer days and warmer weather. If you’re ready to relax by the water with a good book, we recommend a visit to Blue Hole Regional Park in Wimberley. This popular Texas Hill Country destination offers more than just swimming. Explore over 4 miles of trails, enjoy a picnic lunch under the community pavilion or let the kids play on one of the available sport courts. Wimberley is the perfect place to visit for a family-friendly spring break.
