Just a quick drive from Austin, Marble Falls is situated on a chain of seven beautiful lakes, nestled between wildflower covered hills in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Marble Falls is the coolest place to be from the refreshing waters of Lake LBJ to the relaxing verandas of local wineries.

Founded in 1887, shoppers and history buffs alike will appreciate Marble Falls Main Street District where you can shop for treasures among charming antique shops, gift and clothing boutiques, as well as enjoy its many local restaurants.

A trip to town isn't complete without a visit to the 86-year old Blue Bonnet Cafe, famous for its classic cooked foods and Pie Happy Hour - choose from 14 varieties baked daily.

Festivals and fairs are as abundant as the wildflowers in Marble Falls.

Artists and art lovers canvas around the city-wide art celebrations Paint The Town Plein Air Competition and Sculpture on Main.

Pass a lazy afternoon by touring the local wineries - nine in all. Uncork a crisp Sauvignon Blanc or a chocolaty Tempranillo in a scenic setting and toast the day. Or visit one of their craft breweries and enjoy a Hill Country cold one. If you prefer someone else to do the driving, take advantage of a company that provides chauffeured tours while pouring on vineyard trivia and insights to the area en route.

If you are a nature lover, Marble Falls is lucky to be surrounded by some of the best Texas has to offer. Take a tour of a nearby cavern, a boat tour, or canoe excursion and look to the skies to catch a glimpse of a bald eagle. If birdies and other types of eagles are more your style, hit the links on one of 12 golf courses all within 20 minutes of town; many with designer names like Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, and Robert Trent Jones III.
