Kerrville, a one-hour drive west of San Antonio, is the seat of Kerr County and one of Texas’ most popular escape destinations.
Situated in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, Kerrville attracts visitors from all over the United States and the world. From tourists to summer campers to hunters, they all come to enjoy the natural scenic beauty that surrounds Kerrville for miles in every direction and the sparkling, spring-fed waters of the Guadalupe River.
Something about the Hill Country captures the heart of everyone who experiences it: the rugged terrain and rolling hills of the Guadalupe River Valley; clear rivers edged by towering cypress trees; a mild climate touted as one of the nation’s most ideal; an abundance of white-tailed deer, rare birds, and wildflowers; music, craftsmen, cowboys. In a phrase, there is something for everyone in this Hill Country paradise.
Kerrville boasts an array of annual activities, but its best-known events and attractions include the Texas State Arts & Crafts Fair, the Kerrville Folk Festival, the Museum of Western Art, the James Avery Craftsman headquarters, the legendary Y.O. Ranch, and the Kerrville-Schreiner Park.
So, don’t be a stranger to Kerrville! Something is always going on: festivals, arts & crafts fairs, and special events of many different kinds. And, at those times when Kerrville is quiet, it is then one can feel the hills, the river, and the wildlife as they beckon to those living in the fast lane to stop and be refreshed.
