Some day trip ideas (near Austin) to do on the cheap...

Shiner Brewery tour: I've been there once for the Ride To Shiner and never got to take the tour. Check the website for hours (heard they don't do tours on the weekend) & have a driver if you are gonna sample!

New Braunfels, Texas: JB just got back from here & said he loved it. Yes you can just got to float the river or hit up Schlitterbahn but I've heard there are other cool things there.

Blanco Real Ale tour: I heard this is also a pretty cool brewery tour that has tours on the weekend. Again, don't take my word, check their site for hours.

Lockhart, Texas: I love me some BBQ & heard they have the best BBQ here. When I've passed through it reminds me of the town in the Drew Barrymore movie "Homefries".

Enchanted Rock: I have no idea which way to go to get here but I'vd heard it's cool. Might want to skip it if it's 107 degrees!

Perdinales Falls: recommended by a listener, again I have no idea which direction to go to get here.

Blue Bell tour: I pass it all the time coming or going to Houston on 290. I bet it's pretty freaken cool if you love ice cream (great for this summer heat).

Fredericksburg, Texas: I've been there twice (once for peaches & the other time to stop & pee @ the Jeep dealership). Heard there are some pretty cool Bed & Breakfast joints there.

Natural Bridge Caverns: I see the billboard all the time & curiosity is killing me. Maybe I'll check it out this summer.

Marble Falls: I used to give this town a hard time until I visited it last winter...great time. This time I want to take advantage of the water this summer!

The Bluebell tour is fun, but check the dates and times before you go. The factory isn't open on weekends. Free ice cream comes with the tour!
