Why You Need to Experience the Texas Hill Country Winter

1. Texas Hill Country Winter Weather

The “winter” weather in Texas Hill Country tends to lead to smaller crowds than the warmer seasons, which is fantastic if you love to get out and explore. Average daily temperatures typically stay in the high 50s and low 60s, so you don’t have to worry about cold temperatures! That means you can enjoy your time exploring the beautiful outdoors in Hill Country.

2. Explore the Texas Hill Country Wilderness

The mild weather throughout winter in Texas Hill Country makes it one of the best times of the year to explore the rolling hillsides and sweeping valleys. While you may want to bring a light jacket just in case, you can hike through one of the incredible state parks without getting hot and sweaty. There are also a handful of scenic drives in the area that are well worth checking out.


3. Get a Taste of Texas

Regardless of which season you visit Texas Hill Country, you need to experience our incredible culinary scene.

We also hold a special series of Christmas-themed dinners throughout the month of December that ring in the holiday season with a myriad of delicious flavors.
