Revolver Brewery

Reviewed By Takarr - Amarillo, Texas

Met up with friends for a weekend at the lake. Decided to try out revolver. It happened to be their anniversary weekend. They stayed open an extra hour as the lines were long to make sure everyone got their beer. Beer was great! Music was good. Weather was amazing. We had a fantastic time. Would definitely make this a stop if you're in the area.

Hood County Jail and Historical Museum

The museum is housed in an authentic old western jail built in 1885 and located just off the northeast corner of the town square. The museum preserved the upstairs jail cells and hanging gallows just as they were when the County used it as a jail. The main floor houses exhibits on Hood County history covering David Crockett's descendants, General Granbury's tombstone, the Colony, Jesse James, John Wilkes Booth, Bell Starr, Comanche Peak, Barnard's Trading Post, the Brown family piano, and much more. It is recommended to call museum in advance.

Granbury Visitor Center

Reviewed By texasrepublichistory - Dallas, TX

The Granbury Visitors Center is a great place to start your visit to Granbury. The staff are friendly and very informative. Lots of great advise on where to eat, shop, and stay. I always drop by the Visitors Center or Chamber of Commerce office when I visit a town. Ask about unusual things to see or places to go and that special eatery that only town folk know about.

We like to look for outdoor things to do wherever we go. This is a great place to start in Granbury. The markers along the way that tell snippets of the history of this town were nice. Gives you a chance to stop and learn a little. This trail gives you an opportunity to see a little bit of the town. I enjoyed walking past the dog park watching dogs playing. Then the baseball fields watching little ones playing. Then to the city park where any number of activities were going on. If you need to stretch your legs this is the place to do it.

Granbury City Beach

New, white sandy beach with Tiki huts, pavilion and children's water features located adjacent to the new Granbury Resort Conference Center & Boardwalk.

Reviewed By REVoigt - Winter Springs, Florida

I have to chuckle a bit when they call this an attraction; but it popped up that way as a suggested place to review when I reviewed a nearby restaurant. This "beach" is adjacent to the Hilton Garden Inn and the Convention Center so I see it often. It is an area on Lake Granbury where they brought in sand and made a beach. Not quite what I would call a beach; but I guess when your in the middle of a state as big as Texas and the closest real beach is probably a 4 hour drive or more, you will take what you can get... No waves ;)

Granbury Doll House Inc

Reviewed By Wyldranger - Wyldranger

As a guy, I brought my daughter to the Doll House at her request. I wasn't expecting that much from a free museum in a historic house, but I was actually blown away with the size and quality of exhibits. They have dolls of various brands and types going back to the 1800s. They are sorted by type and historical period and I can clearly see that the caretakers look at their work as a labor of love. I was happy to leave a donation for this museum because the world needs more places like this! Go visit, you'll be impressed.... and I don't even like dolls!

Barking Rocks Winery

Reviewed By Richard V - Houston

What a great winery. Unfortunately the tasting room is only open on Saturdays, but we were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the wines. You go to some wineries in small towns and the wines are very sweet and made from things other than grapes. Barking Rocks had great whites and reds. The young lady who helped us with our tasting session was extremely knowledgeable about their wines and very friendly. People from Dallas and Fort Worth are missing out if they don't make the short trip to Granbury to try this winery. We came up from Houston for a long weekend and were very glad we found Barking Rocks.
