Plan a getaway to the remote Texas Hill Country River Region. In the winter — with less visitors to the area — guests can enjoy peaceful quiet as they kayak or canoe the crystal-clear waters of the Sabinal, Nueces or Frio rivers, surrounded by the largest trees in all of Texas. 

Take a trip to Chalk Bluff Park to fish for Guadalupe Bass, and stargaze under one of the only U.S. skies that you can still see the Milky Way. Then, cozy up by the fire at a riverfront vacation rental. The Loft at Owl Hollow offers a private saltwater pool and creek, deep swimming holes, hiking trails and you may even spot its family of wild horses. Surrounded by beautiful pecan, cypress and juniper trees, Seven Bluff Cabins allows visitors to immerse themselves in the purity of nature alongside the Seven Bluff cliff.

Venture out for a gourmet dinner at The Laurel Tree or 18-holes at the Golf Club of Texas at Concan. This championship course offers picturesque, panoramic views of the Hill Country. It’s located along the Frio River and just minutes from Garner State Park where guests can explore endless hiking trails. Hit the trails on horseback at nearby Elm Creek Stables with nothing but open skies, riverfront views and scenic chalk cliffs for miles around.
