Attractions in Lampasas 

If you were to construct the perfect day in the Texas Hill Country, it might go something like this: 18 holes of golf followed by a dip in a refreshing, spring-fed pool. From there, it’s off to a local winery to quench your thirst and tide you over until after you’ve shopped ‘til you drop downtown. At that point, it’s suppertime at one of the Lone Star State’s most iconic burger joints. The day comes to a close as you enjoy an outdoor performance next to a lazy river, as the sun goes down. If you think this sounds like a great way to experience the Hill Country, then you’ll want to keep these attractions in Lampasas in mind.

Along with its attractions, Lampasas is home to many great shops and eateries. Click here to see a full list of shops in Lampasas, and here for the rundown of the town’s restaurants.
