Generations of Houstonians have experienced the allure of Bandera: the hills, the river, the cowboys, the stars, the music and dancing — the mystique of the “Cowboy Capital of the World.” Located just northwest of San Antonio, Bandera is nestled in the Texas Hill Country, arguably the most beautiful region of the state and a reasonable drive from Houston.
In Bandera County, you can be a “dude” at one of our ranches, saddle up to the locals on Main Street, dip an oar (or a toe) into the Medina River or bite into a freshly picked apple. Browse the Frontier Times Museum or pick up some Western duds. Hike through Lost Maples or lean your “hawg” into a curve in the hills. Grab a cold one, prop your feet up and let nature entertain you where our deer and antelope still play!
Whoop it up at a rodeo, maybe “bust a mutton” or catch a wild hog; there are festivals and parades galore. As the stars light up the sky, break out your boots and dance the night away. You’ll find good ol’ Texas music around every corner most nights.
Every season is a good season to be in Bandera, where the fun never sets. And Bandera-style fun will make you forget about the city. Escape to Bandera.
