2011 All American Car Show

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. The Salt Lick, one of the Texas Hill Country’s best, is just minutes from the Blair House. Indulge in your summer fantasies and order up some BBQ. If that isn’t enough sign up for our August BBQ Camp cooking school, which was featured on the food network. Learn how to bring home those smells of ore to your family and friends.

Wimberley is home to the Corral Theatre an open air movie theatre that was built in the 1940s and has been open ever since. This is truly a trip back in time; the cedar stockade walls, open lawn seating and the beautiful hill country sky are the perfect setting to lay out a blanket, kick back and enjoy a movie the way we used to. The Corral Theatre could be a nice touch to a romantic getaway, just the two of you under theTexas sky.
