“In the summer, the thing to do is float on the river and cool off in the river. The Guadalupe is closest but the Comal is also fun and not too far.”

Harbour / Marina
“Boat ramp #19 is the boat ramp at the main marina (near Baja BBQ Shack). From here, one of our favorite things to do is to paddle out to the small island straight ahead from the boat launch. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy your own (semi) private island. ”

“Local dive bar with tons of history! Old dancehall has been renovated and they get incredible bands to play there. They do have sandwiches and the bar is cash only, but they have an ATM inside. *Texas Monthly Best Honky Tonks - August 2019”
