Finally Heading West and a Glimpse of the Old West

Yes, we've been going west since we left Georgia on January 8, but it seems we've been more north and south for a while. From San Marcos, we now head west, and I'm excited about what we'll discover.

While hanging out at the San Marcos library, I did some research on RoadsideAmerica, TripAdvisor, and other sites, and discovered a couple of nearby fun spots I decided to surprise Tim with as we got back on the road, heading toward Johnson City, Texas.

Our first stop was in Wimberly, where we found Pioneer Town. Based on what I'd read, I thought it was a small replica of a pioneer town, but was pleasantly surprised to discover it was so much more!

But Pioneer Town isn't just a replica. It's also a laid-back resort. They have cabins for rent, and lodges for big groups, with 10 bedrooms in each lodge. They have a resort-style swimming pool, and in warm weather, the Blanco River is available for play, too. The Boarding House in the pioneer town actually provides hotel-style rooms for rent, too. I've already told my family we should have a gathering at the 7A Resort - such fun!

Tim was sold when he heard the ice cream parlor is actually operational during summer months so that made the place even sweeter. Ha!

I hear there's a rough one on the loose though, so beware!

Pioneer Town was only our first stop that day. Tomorrow, our next adventure!
