Longer Day Trips.....

Luckenbach

 

Here you'll find a ramshackle tavern/general store, a blacksmith shop and an old-time dance hall. This aging Western trading post-turned-country music mecca is the stuff of myth. On any given night or weekend, musicians in cowboy hats and jeans sit around picking steel guitars, thumbing washtub basses and singing country classics. This 1.5 hour drive will certainly be memorable!

San Antonio

 Only one hour away from Samantha Farms is the San Antonio River Walk, a verdant oasis of cypress-lined paved paths, arched stone bridges and lush landscapes. It gently winds through the city center, providing millions of visitors each year with easy access to the city’s cultural hot spots, incredible restaurants, historic sites and other attractions. 

Austin = Music

If you love music, you have got to visit Austin, Texas.  Its music scene offers something for everyone. Today, Austin continues to be a vibrant center for live music.  Its official motto is “The Live Music Capital of the World.”   Hundreds of live music venues dot the city and are particularly congregated on 6th Street.  This makes for a longer day trip at 2.5 hours to drive, but it's well worth your time!
