The most festive Texas Hill Country town, Johnson City (and LBJs childhood home) celebrates its 31st annual Lights Spectacular. The town is a blaze of beautiful Christmas lights and cheer. See the lights at City Hall, the Pedernales Co-Op, and residential and business lights. Horse Drawn Carriage rides (additional cost), Tractor Pulled Hayrides (donation), tour LBJ’s boyhood home (check dates and availability), downtown merchants and vendors, art galleries- and great restaurants and bars. Grab a hot chocolate to-go and top it off with a shot of Moonshine (additional fee) to walk around the square and see the lights!
Fall Creek is the oldest winery in the Texas Hill Country. While the estate vineyard is in Tow, the Fall Creek Winery in Driftwood also offers views of the grapes walking up to their tasting room AND a homey tasting room feeling. They do offer 100% Texas grown-grapes from several estate and farmer-owner vineyards. If you are looking for truly premium 100% Texas wine, this is a must-go for your Texas wine-tasting experience. This is the best way to get an authentic taste of the different varietals in Texas. You won’t be disappointed! Their tasting room is a beautiful estate that was previously someone’s home before Fall Creek renovated and made it there while still keeping the charm and comfort. Their tasting room features tables on the enclosed patio (great for a nice Texas sunshine day) overlooking a pool and a beautifully manicured lawn with blooming flowers in the spring. Many tables are also set up inside the estate to offer a more intimate setting.
An Iconic Texas Restaurant, The Salt Lick Serves Some Of The Best Barbecue In The World. Picture this: the most massive BBQ pit you’ve ever seen that’s full of ribs, brisket, sausage links, and more delectable types of meat, all smoking to perfection with a roaring fire burning underneath. Plus, visit the Salt Lick Cellars next door for a local beer or wine OR BYOB!
Please note that Salt Lick does not offer reservations. Our recommendation: Decide on your order in advance and call for pick up on the morning of your tour. You can then pick up “to-go” and eat at picnic tables outside, frequent live music, and BYOB, but you can purchase local beer and wine from the cellars on the property.
