Texas Hill Country Wineries

Every wine connoisseur’s bucket list should include a trip to the Texas Hill Country region, voted one of the top 10 wine destinations by Wine Enthusiast Magazine in 2014. Home to some of the state’s best wineries, Hill Country is a key place for first-time vineyard visitors as well as winery veterans. In fact, the Texas Hill Country American viticultural area is the second-largest in the nation, covering an area of more than 9 million acres. 

Surf's Up in the Lone Star State

With more than 600 miles of coastline, Texas hosts endless possibilities when it comes to relaxing beach getaways. With its mild weather year-round, every season is beach season in the Lone Star State. Dolphin-watching excursions, deep-sea fishing, bird-watching and relaxing strolls on the beach are just a few of the activities found along Texas’ Gulf Coast.
