Inner. Space Cavern

A fantastic limestone cave system discovered in 1963, Inner Space Cavern is an awe-inspiring chance to tour one of the best-preserved caves in Texas. Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring your camera!

Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas

Georgetown’s Town Square, surrounding the historic Williamson County Courthouse, is not only an amazing example of beautifully restored historic architecture, it’s also full of things to do! From the Williamson County Museum to numerous shops, restaurants, and activities, your time here is well-spent! Parking is free in and around the square. On the First Fridays of each month merchants stay open later for evening shopping. For maps and suggestions, start at the Georgetown Visitors Center.

Southwestern University

Southwestern University is the oldest institution of higher learning in Texas, chartered in 1840. The Roy and Lillie Cullen Building was built in 1900 and is the majestic structure right across the street from San Gabriel House B&B. Visit the Admissions Office for more information.

Spring Wildflowers

The Texas Hill Country is famous for our wildflowers: Bluebonnets, Indian Blanket, Wine Cups, and – especially here in Georgetown – Red Poppies! Thanks to the Texas Department of Transportation, you’ll see wildflowers in the spring blanketing the roadways, but if you really want to find the best places for the best photos, the Texas Wildflower Report on Facebook provides maps of when and where to go.
