THE TEXAS HILL COUNTRY EXPERIENCE

March 10 – 13, 2023

Come join us as we visit the Hill Country of Texas like Western explorers! We will start in Boerne, a German settled enclave nestled by the Cibolo Creek with a historic Main Street, one of the top 25 in the USA! Then a drive towards Fredericksburg to some of the top wineries with a special group of tastings that has been set up especially for us. On the way to Fredericksburg, we will view the Texas Bluebonnets at the peak of their season – a sea of beautiful blue flowers everywhere! We will also take in Gruene, with its storied past and a true Texas dancehall. Get those boots ready to hit the floor! While in the area, we will try out the famed Texas Barbeque at Black Board BBQ and drink Black Rifle Coffee in the morning! Shopping is fantastic in Boerne, so bring a little extra $$$ along. See you there!
