Nestled along the banks of the Guadalupe River, Kerrville is one of the Texas Hill Country’s best kept secrets. Rich in history with a diverse selection of things to see, do, taste and experience, Kerrville is a must-see for anyone in the Texas Hill Country.
Visitors to downtown Kerrville, Texas enjoy a unique retail shopping experience ranging from high-end merchandise shops where cowboys once purchased provisions for cattle drives headed north to old hidden treasures in a two story antique shop. Dining fare is as varied and unique as the shopping experience with menus ranging from exotic game to international cuisine to burgers and fries; offering meal options for every appetite. When visiting downtown Kerrville find time to tour the stately Schreiner Mansion built in 1879, explore a bookstore filled with rare first editions and books on Texana, relax with cocktails in an upscale-underground club that once was used for ice storage, or experience an art exhibit in a 1935 art deco building that was initially home to the Kerrville Post Office.
While strolling between the shops and galleries, if you listen closely, you can hear the water from the Guadalupe River spilling over the downtown dam. Few cities have a river running through the heart of downtown; being built on the banks of the Guadalupe River is just one of the many things that makes Kerrville a unique Texas Hill Country destination. After a day of shopping, dining, and checking out the art exhibits, relax in the gazebo located on a bluff above the river or venture across the river to newly renovated Louise Hays Park, complete with an amphitheater, a four mile long scenic river trail, and a children’s play area all nestled in the serenity of Texas Hill Country beauty.
Kerrville is a true Texas Hill Country treasure offering shops, restaurants, a flourishing arts community and outdoor recreation all in an historic downtown setting.
