Hmm. How far are you willing to drive? About 4 hours away, down south, is the Hill Country. There are some relaxing little B&Bs down there along rivers, especially in areas like Fredericksburg or Wimberly.

sure! the Hill Country is really close to both Austin and San Antonio, and it would be fun to spend a night eating/drinking in either.  also, Schlitterbaun is a great water park located in New Braunfels, smack dab between the two. you could spend a couple of days at a B&B a little father north just chillin’, then head into the city for some fun!

if you want something a little closer (under 3 hours) you could try a B & B in Jefferson. My mom and I went there every year growing up and stayed a couple nights. You can shop a little, take a riverboat tour, see some pretty old houses. It’s not super fancy but if you pick a nice b & b it’s fun. (We stayed at The Captain’s Castle.) But my ultimate vote is for the Hill Country also. Or just find a really nice hotel in DFW and hole up there and get spa services and rent movies and get roomservice, then venture out whenever you feel like it.

http://innonlakegranbury.com/ we stayed here recently and it was very nice and quaint and relaxing. it’s about a 1.5 hour drive from downtown dallas.

it really is as pretty as the photos, too. the rest of the town is kinda meh, but at least this place is gorgeous 🙂
