Feb 4, 2013 - Touring Texas Hill Country
Located on the southern edge of Texas, San Antonio makes a great stepping off point to see the rest of the big, sprawling Lone Star state. A great way of moving out and about from San Antonio, and traveling through Texas is with a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Bus Charters San Antonio. Travel through Texas in style and comfort as your friendly, reliable charter bus driver takes you and your group where you need to go in your charter bus.
Texas Hill Country was first settled by Germans and East Europeans in the late 19th century. As you travel through Hill Country in your charter bus, don’t be surprised to hear older folks speaking German in Fredericksburg, Boerne and New Braunfels. Today, Texas Hill Country is a scenic wonderland of rolling terrain, giving charter bus visitors the opportunity to explore the countryside and its small towns. Enjoy floating down cool rivers, or strolling quaint Main streets in search of bargains, antiques or curiosities. Charter bus visitors can even partake of outdoor activities such as hiking, biking or horse riding.
Vineyards have become a Hill Country speciality, and a firm favorite with charter bus visitors. Take a charter bus and follow the Wine and Wildflower Trail in April or the Harvest Wine Trail in August to sample some of the award-winning vintages produced by more than 20 regional wineries. During San Antonio’s New World Wine & Food Festival in November, many wineries pair their best wines with multi-course feasts, making it easy to explain why the Texas wine industry is fast gaining a solid reputation amongst wine connoisseurs.
Traditional folk and country music are musical traditions that run deep in the heart of Texas Hill Country. Take you charter bus and stop at the town of Luckenbach on the weekend, buy a brew in the old post office inside a barn, and find a spot under the spreading oak trees for listening to whoever drops in to sing and play their guitar. For a taste of old time Texas, visit the wood floored Gruene Hall, where famous Texas musicians play in what is said to be the oldest still-operating dance hall in Texas. On weekend evenings at the Hilltop Café near Fredericksburg, lucky charter bus visitors can catch original members of Asleep at the wheel, Johnny Nicholas on guitar, or Floyd Domino banging out hot boogies on the piano.
For charter bus visitors wanting to do a little shopping, picturesque Hill Country is like a magical mystery charter bus tour, you never know what treasures you’ll find among its boutiques, antiques shops and galleries. Jewelry, quilts, ceramics, paintings and even handmade furniture by local artists are all charter bus favorites, along with homemade jams, jellies, bread and other edibles.
