Craft Your Perfect Hill Country Vacation

Treat Yourself to a Shopping Spree
The shopping experience in Kerrville is worth a trip in and of itself. Begin your shopping journey by stopping in Schreiner Goods, an upscale boutique offering carefully curated women’s clothing, accessories, jewelry, and home decor options. Each of the associates are trained as personal shoppers and stylists and they are eager to provide a tailored shopping experience for you. When you are looking for one-of-a-kind and even custom home decor and furniture, Rustic Elegance is the next stop on your shopping excursion. Pick out your favorite chandelier, dining set, office furniture, and more to freshen up your space. If you are looking for something unique, the Rustic Elegance team can help you design custom furniture that brings your vision to life. Make sure to also stop by the James Avery headquarters and store to pick out some jewelry and learn more about this iconic brand that began in Kerrville.
Tour and Sip Your Way Through the Kerrville Wine Scene
When you are in the Hill Country, sipping on local wine is a must and Kerrville’s wineries and tasting rooms are ready to pour you a glass. Head over to Kerrville Hills Winery and enjoy an afternoon of wine tasting above the Guadalupe River Valley. Tours of the facility are also available to enjoy. Visiting in the spring or summer? Expect to pair live music and a variety of events with your wine of choice. Next on your winery tour is Turtle Creek Olives & Vines in downtown Kerrville. Located in a historic Kerrville building built in 1890, this swanky tasting room will pour you a glass of private label Texas wine, as well as wine from all around the world. Pair your glass with a signature charcuterie board and make sure to explore the Italian extra virgin olive oils and wines for sale. One minute away is your next stop, Wine-O-Bout It. This spot is more than a wine store, it is a gathering space where you can nestle into a cozy seat at the wine bar and order a flight to taste a variety of wines, or shop the home-good items.
Dine on Craft Cuisine Riverside
From dining with views of the Guadalupe River, to grabbing a seat in a cozy historic building, the Kerrville culinary scene is one to write home about. Restaurants with a focus on fresh ingredients and craft cuisine elevate the dining experience in Kerrville beyond visitor expectations for a smaller town. Be sure to make a reservation at local favorite restaurants, one of them being 1011 Bistro. Enjoy fine dining with views of the sparkling Guadalupe River and surrounding rugged hills that will transport you from the hustle of everyday life to feelings of tranquility. Dine on everything from mussels to filet mignon and enjoy a delectable dessert like whiskey cake. History intersects culinary at many of our downtown eateries as visitors dine and imbibe in cozy, historical landmark buildings dating back to the 1800's. One of these eateries is Francisco's Restaurant. Located in the restored Weston Building built in 1890, enjoy seafood, pasta, and Mexican dishes while admiring the many art pieces that adorn the walls.
Carve Your Own Path Through the Guadalupe River
Round out your trip by taking in the Texas sunset on the Guadalupe River. Kerrville is home to the headwaters of the Guadalupe River so rent a paddleboard or kayak to carve your own path through its serene waters. Continue taking in the sights of untouched Hill Country landscapes with a bike ride or hike along the Kerrville River Trail. This impressive trail system spans 6 miles and is the perfect jumping-off point for exploring a variety of city parks and trailheads. Two parks worth adding to your itinerary include Kerrville-Schreiner Park and Louise Hays Park where visitors can enjoy hiking, biking, and birding.

Just as the Guadalupe River crafts its path through town, we invite you to craft your own unique getaway in Kerrville. However you decide to spend your time, we are confident that this Hill Country destination will become your new favorite vacation spot.
