Cowboy Mardi Gras

Bandera Texas -The cowboy capital of the world.

Located an hour drive North East of San Antonio, this Hill Country gem is the next stop on our hill country adventure. Medina and Sabina Rivers, and Medina Lake are located here. The lone start Motorcycle museum, lost maples state natural area, Hill Country State Natural area are also located in Bandera County. There are several nice hunting ranches, RV Parks, and other great opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors of the Texas Hill County.

The town of Bandera is the entertainment hub of Bandara County, a vast 800 square mile oasis for Hill Country fun. For those of you looking for some old west charm, this place can’t be beat. There are cowboy shows and mock gun fights on main street (most Saturdays). dude ranches and old school motels also help give this town some Texas Cowboy charm.


Cowboy Mardi Gras Feb 12-15  – We have never been, but we are going to try to make it this year. Sounds like a fun weekend.

Bandera Livestock Show is in January, making it the perfect time for a visit.
