From our campsite it was less than a 10 minute walk to downtown Blanco, where we had a pretty good sandwich at Redbud Cafe Market & Pub and some tasty and very inexpensive Mexican food at Hacienda El Charro.
Redbud Cafe is located in the town square which also has a couple more restaurants, some antique and other shops, and a nearby bowling alley. We didn't find much else to see or do in Blanco but according to the Blanco Chamber of Commerce website there are some art galleries, lavender farms, and museums to visit.
As mentioned earlier, there are some fantastic golf courses nearby - use this golf map to find them and read our reviews.
If you want to spend some more time camping, Guadalupe River State Park and Pedernales State Park are not that far away and both are outstanding parks.
Why not zip down to Canyon Lake and go fishing, swimming, or rent a boat and enjoy this scenic lake with clear emerald green water. Read our review of Canyon Lake to learn why we like this lake and what there is to see and do.
You'll have fun feeding the Llama at Blanco State Park, but if you really want to get up close and personal with a wide variety of animals, then visit the nearby Exotic Ranch Zoo. There are over 500 animals and more than 80 speciies, a number of which are endangered, waiting for you to pet and feed them. Read about our fun tour with Exotic Ranch Zoo.
