Shopping Centre
“The Hill Country Galleria is a large walking mall but has lots of convenient parking both on-street as well as parking garages that are strategically located within the shopping area. It is most easily accessed from our location by taking Bee Cave Parkway to the right off of Bee Cave Rd. and then turning left into the shopping mall. The main entry is from Highway 71 and is also easy access. Hill Country has many good restaurants and lots of shopping. Many very nice brand name stores are located in this center. Additionally it includes a Whole Food grocery store, Dick’s sporting goods and Barnes and Noble. There is a Cinemark Theatre there with all the current movies showing. Tuesday matinee is their bargain rate.”
