Road trips are deeply disappointing when there's a lack of scenic views. Luckily the Texas Hill Country is known for it's gorgeous landscape any way you're coming from. Willow City does not disappoint when it comes to scenery, in fact, it beats almost anywhere in Texas. There's bluebonnets, longhorns, cows, fields of greenery, and so much more.
Once you've arrived in Willow City prepare to feel more Texan than ever. On your right will be longhorns, and on your left will be fields of bluebonnets. It's what you do while you're there that'll make the trip even better. The city is known for Harry's BBQ and Beer Joint which has the tastiest BBQ ever. There's constantly live music, plenty of room to sit and eat, and a great spot to play horseshoes! Yee-freaking-haw.
Willow City is near Fredericksburg with plenty to do such as visit the stunning Enchanted Rock, and great spots to spend the night if you want to experience more of the city or surrounding areas in the morning. There's plenty to do and see while you're out and about. Why road trip anywhere else? We really couldn't tell you.

Willie Nelson is calling on President Joe Biden to make "4/20" — a day many use to celebrate the consumption of marijuana — an official national holiday.
Nelson, in collaboration with his Luck Reunion team, launched a petition to help declare the nine days spanning April 20-29 the official "High Holidays," with the last day of celebration falling on the country music star's birthday.
"We believe that recognition of the 'High Holidays' opens the door to much-needed dialogue supporting the many benefits of cannabis while helping to remove the unjustified stigmas currently surrounding this amazing plant," the team wrote to President Biden.
The petition, which asks supporters to "please puff, puff, and pass this to your friends in Congress for consideration," has a goal of getting 2,500 signatures and it has already received nearly 2,400 as of Tuesday, April 20 at 4 p.m. EST.
