Lake LBJ Yacht Club and Marina

Reviewed By Jimmers2014 - Horseshoe Bay, Texas

The Yacht Club is seriously dated and needs renovation. The Y-Bar has been done and it's a good place for a drink but expect slow service. The buffets are excellent - maybe the best fresh shrimp you can find.

Hill Country Community Theatre

Reviewed By Kristy J - Chickasha, Oklahoma, United States

My husband and I were staying at Horseshoe Bay Resort this weekend for a little get away from our busy life in Oklahoma. Knowing that Chickasha Community Theatre is a passion of mine, my sweetie looked up "live theaters" in the Hill Country area and found HCCT and that there was a production going on. We got tickets to "The Dixie Swim Club". It was fantastic! The actresses were perfect for the parts they were cast in. A great script obviously, but the ladies comedic timing and delivery was impeccable! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Thank you HCCT for providing wonderful entertainment for your community and visitors.

David and Quyhn and the staff are awesome! Their beers are really good and the selection is amazing. The brewery has plenty of seating, in and out, and a food truck that smelled heavenly. Top-notch facility, beers, and people. Fun environment. Parking was plentiful. They are open Fridays and Saturdays and are right off 281 in Marble Falls. A lot of thought was put into this business and proceeds go to charity. Beer purchase includes the glass. Highly recommend visiting STWB!

We got the chance to climb the observation tower and walk the trails before the tour - fun and kid friendly, and even the longest hiking path didn’t take more than 40 minutes all told. The cave tour was extensive and featured a lot more history and diverse geology than we were expecting - very much worth the time and price of admission. They have food and snacks for sale at the ticket counter, as well as a gift shop. Definitely recommend!

Horseshoe Bay Resort - Applerock Course

This three-time Silver Medal Award Winner features magnificent views and its two dramatic back-to-back par five 10th and 11th holes, which shoot down from the top of the Caprock to the blue shores of Lake LBJ below.

Reviewed By Sheryl B - Bethesda, Maryland

Decently hard, LONG course from the ladies tees. In great condition. Some claim this is the more scenic, as it has lake views, but it is comparable to Ramrock, which I preferred. Plenty of opportunities to lose balls. Nice facilities, very nice condition.

Horseshoe Bay Resort - Slick Rock Course

Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., this 18-hole championship course features five sets of tees enabling the course to change continually from day to day.

Reviewed By John C - Oakley, California

Another great find golf course is fantastic with very wide fairways and large greens very unique hole locations make sure you see the waterfall as you drive over it. This course is also another challenging course enjoyed it a little bit more than Ram Rock. They just got done redoing the greens so the course was in fantastic shape. Again the service was spectacular, also remember they only except credit cards here. I would definitely play here again

Open from open from mid-November through the end of the year, the Marble Falls Walkway of Lights is a must-see for anyone visiting the Texas Hill Country. Located at Lakeside Park, adjacent to Lake Marble Falls,the light show features over 2 million lights,and is absolutely spectacular -- a winter wonderland that will put everyone in the Christmas spirit! Highly recommended.

Horseshoe Bay Resort - Ram Rock Course

One of three Robert Trent Jones Sr., designed golf courses at Horseshoe Bay Resort, which is considered a real challenge with tight fairways, dramatic elevation changes and slick greens protected by more than 60 deep bunkers.

Reviewed By Jimmers2014 - Horseshoe Bay, Texas

One of my favorite courses in Texas - or anywhere else. Too bad the sand traps are not up to the course's standards. They are full of rocks and I'm not talking pebbles. Sand is terrible and depth is erratic so forget about an explosion shot - you never know what might happen.

There is also no clubhouse or 19th hole. Very disappointing.

Sweet Berry Farm

Reviewed By Lisa2017Stockton - Round Rock, Texas

My family discovered this farm a few years ago and it is one of our favorite places to visit. You can check on their website for weather updates, picking conditions and they keep you very informed of what is going on their Facebook page. In the spring they are open to pick strawberries, blackberries, onions, potatoes and peaches. Then in the fall you can pick your own pumpkins. It is so much fun to take the kids out there and let them hunt for their own strawberries and pumpkins. They have some delicious snacks too (strawberry popsicles and ice cream!). There are benches to have a picnic at if you want. There are goats and horses to pet, in the fall you can ride on the horses.

They have different activities you can pay for so you can do as much or as little as you want. In the spring they have - Sand Art, ride the barrel train and paint-a-pot.

In the fall there are - Hayrides, candy corn kid maze, pumpkin painting, scarecrow stuffing, face painting, pick your own flowers, sand art, barrel train ride, berry bounce and the Texas Maze. That maze is huge! It is shaped like the state of Texas. Last year you got a punch card and had to find different stations throughout the maze to hole punch.

There are so many great photo opportunities during both seasons. It is a great way to spend the day. I highly recommend visiting in both the spring and fall. I can't say enough good things about this farm.

Olio Art Gallery Horseshoe Bay

In the small but bustling city of Horseshoe Bay, Tx. there is Olio Art Gallery on the main road running through town. Untraditional in the sense of the ubiquitous Texas Hill Country art gallery, Olio is unconventional, contemporary and sophisticated. The art of Olio is pleasing, very interesting and thought provoking. Come see come sigh and rest assured you will fall in love!

Reviewed By FrostyHSB - Horseshoe Bay, Texas

A very nice gallery that has a mixture of styles and subjects. I would recommend visiting while in the area and keeping a tune for her "showings"
