World’s largest spur, delicious restaurants and beautiful views can be found along the way on your Hill Country Road Trip. Autumn in Texas is a fantastic time of year to load up the car and take a leisurely road trip to the Texas Hill Country.
Recently, that’s exactly what I did! It was the perfect girls trip and of course we found lots of fun stops along the way.
We packed up our Ford Expedition, skipped the freeway and took the scenic route. Our kids were with grandparents, so we had the luxury of taking our sweet time.
I really liked how much room the 2019 Ford Expedition Limited 4X2 had. The all leather seats made for a comfy ride and we could take in the views with the panoramic vista roof. Having the driver assistance and voice activated touch screen meant my hands were on the wheel and made me feel safe on the road. Plus having an amazing navigation system to help us find hidden gems made the road trip that much more enjoyable.
Stops to make on a Hill Country Road Trip
Stop for lunch – The Koffee Kup Family Restaurant in Hico is known for it’s home cooking and most delicious pies I’ve ever had. Once you’ve filled up on lunch, be sure to stroll around the square and visit the Billy The Kid Museum and find out what really happened to the infamous Texas Outlaw.
Visit the World’s Largest Spur – Located right off Hwy 281 in Lampasas, sits the world’s largest spur. The steel sculpture is 35 feet tall and 20 feet wide. It’s free to visit and makes for a great photo opportunity.
Be Somebody in Luckenbach – Luckenbach is an absolute must visit! Walk through the general store, which was built in 1849, grab a drink and relax at one of the picnic tables while listening to the band.
Stay at a 1960’s Motor Lodge – The Stonewall motor lodge is nestled on the famous Hwy290 wine trail and is the perfect lodging for your getaway. This classic roadside motel has been fully restored while keeping the vintage vibe. The likes of Walter Cronkite, Jimmy Carter, Gregory Peck and many others have stayed at the hotel.
