This small city was a booming resort town in the late 19th century, known as the “Saratoga of the South.” People came here to soak in the sulfur springs, which were thought to have healing properties. W.M. Brook Park offers a riverwalk along Sulphur Creek. One-of-a-kind murals scattered throughout downtown and surrounding areas depict the county's heritage (www.visionlampasas.com).

Lampasas is on a segment of the Ports-to-Plains Highway connecting the state's heartland to its coastal ports.
