OLD TIME SUMMER FUN IN THE COWBOYCAPITAL

Head to the River or Lake: Folks up north pack a winter survival kit, blankets, water, food, etc., just in case their car caught in a winter storm. Here we pack a summer fun kit in the car, towels, river shoes, sun screen, bathing suit, and ice chest just in case we decide to “jump in” and cool off. There are riverside roadside parks to enjoy. And of course you can go tubing, kayaking or enjoy boating on Medina Lake.

Get Star Struck: Sit out under the stars and explore the universe and marvel at nature’s very own light show. Lost Maples State Natural Area is designated an official dark sky area. There is no man-made light to detract from nature’s brilliant light. You’ll be amazed at how truly big and bright the stars shine.

You Scream, We scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream: Treat yourself to an old fashioned ice cream cone, sundae, float, shake or decadent banana split or tryout the Apple Store’s apple ice cream. Don’t forget to top it off with the apple cider sauce for an extra special treat.

Checkout the Weekly Farmer’s Markets: There’s nothing better than fresh from the garden fruits and vegetables and homemade jams and jellies or free-range eggs. You might even learn a few new tips on how to prepare and savor old time favorites. The weekly calendar posts times and locations.

Giddy-Up Go: Grab your cowboy hat, saddle up your stead, sit tall in the saddle and explore the Hill Country the cowboy way. With just a little imagination you’ll think you have stepped back in time.

Take at a Scenic Drive:Whether it is two-wheeled or four wheeled you’ll be thrilled by the hills and dips and twists and turns along the way and awe struck by the panoramic beauty.

Get Lost in History: Visit one of our area museums. Take a walk with the dinosaurs, dig for dinosaur bones, and see over 100 full body mounts of animals from all regions of the globe displayed in hand-painted dioramas depicting their natural habitat at the Bandera Natural History Museum. Visit the Stalls of Fame depicting Bandera’s rodeo stars, the Texas Heroes Hall of Honor and curiosities from around the world at the Frontier Times Museum. Catch a glimpse of life of by-gone eras at the Town Mountain Miniatures. Track the evolution of motorcycles at the Lone Star Motorcycle Museum.

Whoop and Holler: Cheer on our favorite cowboy and cowgirl at the many summer rodeos.
