This authentic Western town, surrounded by working and guest ranches, bills itself as the "Cowboy Capital of the World." Rodeos are held at least twice weekly from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Western re-enactments are held most Saturday afternoons at the Bandera County Visitor Center.
The area offers horseback riding and swimming in resort pools or clear Hill Country lakes and rivers. Exotics ranches are available for year-round hunting. Find fishing, camping, hiking, rodeos, two 18-hole golf courses and various live music venues.
