Fixer Upper Experience

The popular TV show Fixer Upper is filmed just 35 minutes away from us.  We have maps and inside information that will direct you to the Magnolia store and supply you with addresses of some of the projects that have been featured on the show.  You will be able to visit the Harp Design store along with many others featured on the show. Then there are two great Mexican restaurants for lunch, either La Fiesta or Chuy’s Mexican Cantina.

Texas Hill Country

This is an amazing day trip we’ve taken many times, and we are always ready to go back.  You can catch an early lunch at Cooper’s BBQ in Llano, which stays in the top 5 best BBQ joints in Texas.  From there hike up Enchanted Rock, then take the beautiful drive into Fredericksburg.  Do some shopping, tour the many wineries, visit Wildseed Farm and have dinner at The Blue Bonnet Café in Marble Falls on your way back to complete your day.  This trip covers a lot of ground and can be completed in a day without traveling the same roads for over half the trip.

Outdoor Movie Theater

Gatesville has one of the last outdoor movie theaters, and is a great experience.  Bring your chairs and watch a movie under the stars or stay inside your car.  Admission and concessions are very reasonable.

Fort Hood Museums

Fort Hood Museums are less than an hour drive and are well done.

Wine Tours & More

Central Texas is becoming famous for its wine and whiskey distilleries.
