Quote:
"Delicious is our Business" … that is the motto of the Czech Stop, and they certainly deliver on their promises. Every Texan who travels back and forth between Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio is aware of the Czech Stop and most will eventually make a pit stop at the Czech Stop sometime in their lifetime. Located half way between Austin and Dallas on exit 353 of I-35, it is the perfect location for a pit stop. The Czech Stop is most simply described as a filling station with gas pumps, restrooms, soft drinks, and snacks. But this little pit stop located in West, TX offers so much more. West, TX is in the heart of the Czech community which settled in Central Texas in the late 1880’s whe...Read More

Attraction | "Interesting and Rich with Historic Significance"

We visited the LBJ Park in June 2011 in connection with a family vacation to San Antonio. On our way from San Antonio, we stopped in Fredericksburg for lunch and then drove through the Hill Country towards Austin to spend the night. We did not plan to stop as I had visited the Ranch in the past, but my history buff husband insisted we at least drive through the property. Location: Located on Highway 290 in Gillespie County between Fredericksburg and Johnson City, TX, the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historic Park ("LBJ Park", "LBJ Ranch", or "the Ranch") is a great stop when road-tripping through the Hill Country. Length of Time: Guests visiting the LBJ Ranch can spend a mini...Read More

We spent one night at the Barton Creek Resort and Spa ("Barton Creek" or "the resort") during our family vacation at the end of June 2011. We live in Dallas and drove to San Antonio to spend three nights at the Hyatt Hill Country before driving east through Fredericksburg to Austin before driving home the next morning. The purpose for staying one night at Barton Creek was to break up the drive from San Antonio to Dallas for our 16 month old daughter. We were seeking a hotel in close proximity to Austin with a comfortable, clean room. As part of our booking rate, we were also provided a free breakfast in Barton Creek’s main dining room the next morning. Location: Barton Creek is loca...Read More
