Dallas, Austin and the Hill Country! Oh My!
We went for a little Christmas get away from the cold ❄️✈️ Flew in and out of Dallas:
Top Dallas Finds: (click the links to see more to help plan your trip!)
Coffee: Weekend Coffee / Bar: Midnight Rambler / (all inside our hotel) Hotel: The Joule
Rented a car 🚗 ➡️
And drove to the Hill Country!
Where we enjoyed wine/ bourbon / vodka and Olives 🍷🥃🍸
Top Hill country stops for
Wine : Lewis Wines (the 2012 Texas Tempranillo was our favorite from their tasting )
Bourbon: Garrison Brothers (the cowboy bourbon was as good as their location – wood rocking chairs to enjoy your tasting in the hills )
Vodka: Dripping Springs (they have gin too but my favorite find was their handcrafted Texas Orange 🍊)
Olives: Olive Company ( olives / olive oils / you can pair with wine and their full menu and patio overlooking their olive fields)
🚗 ➡️Next stop was Austin!
We stayed at the Hilton on the water, with complimentary parking, beautiful rooms and views! Only a 5 minute walk from 6th street and Rainey street – our favorite two places to spend our time!
On Austin’s dirty 6 (6th street) we enjoyed live music and drinks at Friends Bar – live music 7 days a week!
On Rainey street our favorite stop was the Container Bar ( wall art/ amazing drinks/ and tacos 🌮 )
🚗➡️ Then we were off to Fort Worth !
I mean when I think Texas I think RODEO 🐂
We enjoyed the Stock Yards, the shops, the cowboys 🤠 the bull riding 🤡 and the music 🎶 even some two stepping at Billy Bobs Texas
🚗➡️ Arlington to AT&T stadium to see a Cowboys Game for some live Monday Night Football 🏈
The tailgating was amazing: tacos, live music, Tvs and dancing. But you need to check out Boomer Jacks for some bar fun!
🚗➡️ Back to Dallas where we snapped some photos in front of the 30 foot eyeball across the street from the joule hotel ! Check it out HERE!
✈️ ➡️ Left back to Chicago after an amazing trip well spent!
