Bandera is the "Cowboy Capital of the World". Historical markers at the Western Heritage Plaza in downtown Bandera give proof of the claim and also Bandera's role in the Great Western Cattle Trail. A visit to the Frontier Times Museum further explains our heritage. Today a variety of dude ranches surround the town offering visitors a taste of the cowboy lifestyle. You are apt to see horses sharing the road with Harleys, pickups, and sports cars. Bandera's honky tonks offer nightly country western music.
