Summer makes some of you nostalgic for those good old days when life was simple. Summer meant grilling with your family, long hot nights sitting on the front porch listening to the radio, drive in movies and big cars with fins. If you love classic cars, barbeque and drive-in movies, I’ve got the place for you. The Blair House Inn is a beautiful Texas bed and breakfast in Wimberley, a Hill Country jewel.

San Marcos,Texas, is home to Dick’s Classic Garage which is a part of the Central Texas Museum of Automotive History. Founded in 1980, the museum is dedicated to the preservation and display of the history of the automobile. This great little gem is located just 20 minutes from the Blair House Inn. Dick’s Classic Garage showcases vehicles and memorabilia from the 1930′s though the 1950′s. Considered the Golden Years of American automotive manufacturing, the Museum will take guests from the Great Depression to World War II and up to the rockin’ 1950′s. In addition, the museum has acquired and renovated vehicles that are of historic and developmental importance. The Museum’s goal is to show today’s guests and future generations the evolution of the automobile and how it has impacted society and the effect society has had on the automobile.

Summer smells of brisket and ribs smoking on the grill, potato salad and peach cobbler just like your Grandmother’s.
