Venture out of the city with trips to St. Mary's Church High Hill (in Schulenburg), Kreische Brewery & Monument Hill State Historic Site (in La Grange) and Wimberley Valley Winery (in Driftwood). There's lots more to do: do a tasting at Flat Creek Estate Winery, pause for some serene contemplation at Chapel Dulcinea, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and look for gifts at Cabela's.
