The best Southern Cooking with amazing hospitality! The chicken is fried while wait so you have to be patient but it is well worth it. Everything is top quality!

Bastrop State park is a great place for a hike and a good reason to head to the beautiful city of Bastrop. A large portion of the park burned in 2011. It is great to hike through the young trees and enjoy some great views and historical park buildings. Make sure to have sturdy shoes and water! You might want to grab lunch at Neighbors after your hike. The view of the Colorado river is fantastic. The food is great too!

Two step the night away! Less than 20 minutes North on 95 is the Old Coupland Dance Hall. This is a true Texas Dancehall Experience. Check their social media to find out who is on stage. They usually have live musics on Friday or Saturday nights. Check to make sure it is not Teen night. It might be a local favorite band such as the Debonaires or Kenny Orts or even The Bellamy Brothers or Tanya Tucker. You can show up early for dinner, the food is average while the atmosphere is charming. You might consider a lyft for less than $20 each way.
