About Blanco TX
Blanco is located on U.S. Highway 281, twelve miles south of Johnson City. With the larger cities of Austin and San Antonio just an hour away, Blanco enjoys a refreshingly slower pace. It has all the charm and friendliness of a small Texas town. Locals gather regularly at the Blanco Bowling ClubCafé for coffee and pause to chat on the town square.The Club is only one of eleven in the state with non-automated, nine-pin bowling.
The Blanco River, with its beautiful blue-green water, meanders through its southern edge. It provides not only the community’s drinking water but also its most popular tourist attraction. The river is the focal point of Blanco State Park, one of only a few state parks with camping facilities located within a city. The town’s majestic centerpiece is the old Blanco County courthouse. Built in 1885, it currently serves as a visitor’s center and community hall.

The annual Lavender Festival features local and regional lavender farms with booths selling their own lavender products and plants.You will find Blanco is the perfect place to stay to explore all that the Hill Country has to offer. Along the way, you just might discover you want to make it your weekend or permanent home!
