Destination guide

Hitch your wagon to Kerrville's (lone) star

Amid the rolling terrain of the Texas Hill Country, Kerrville is known for its vibrant wild-west history, its charming downtown, and a wealth of waterfront parks along the banks of the Guadalupe River. A small town with a thriving arts scene, Kerrville hosts a bounty of annual festivals, including the Texas State Arts & Crafts Fair and the Kerrville Folk Festival. A central Kerrville vacation rental will put you within easy reach of the Museum of Western Art, Kerrville Hills Winery, and the Stonehenge II sculpture.

Things to do

Kerrville – everybody must get Stonehenged

No visit to Kerrville would be complete without a visit to the strange, iconic Stonehenge II, a (somewhat smaller) reproduction of the British original, with a couple of Easter Island heads thrown in just to be safe. At the Museum of Western Art, you can peruse a rotating collection of works by regional artists, as well as an art library and a number of permanent exhibits. After you've gotten your culture fix, head over to the Riverside Nature Center, a sprawling arboretum and botanical garden with more than 300 species of trees, flowers, and native plants.


A different kind of live stream in Kerrville

The broad Guadalupe River is one of Kerrville's main attractions, and it's a major destination for rafting, fly-fishing, and canoeing. Kerrville boasts a number of riverfront parks, but the 517-acre Kerrville-Schreiner Park is one of the most popular. Here, you'll find hiking trails and campsites within a scenic, wooded area, and you can spot local wildlife like deer, rabbits, and several bird species. If your timing is right, the Kerrville Folk Festival is always worth checking out. The 18-day concert features local, national, and international musicians, and past performers have included Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, and Mary Chapin Carpenter.


The heat is on this summer in Kerrville

Kerrville has a humid subtropical climate, which means hot, muggy summers, generally cool winters, and plenty of sunlight in every season. Spring and fall are warm and wet, with average highs in the upper 70s in April and September. Summer highs reach the mid-90s in June, July, and August, while winters peak around 61ºF in December and January.

Natural features

Head for the hill country in Kerrville

Nestled beside the Guadalupe River, Kerrville lies amid the low peaks and rocky outcroppings of the Texas Hill Country, a unique ecosystem that marks the easternmost edge of the American Southwest. The region features granite escarpments, rugged hills, and low-lying scrubland, and you can spot deer, rabbits, and foxes, as well as a variety of migratory birds. Since the Guadalupe River is always close at hand, a Kerrville vacation rental would make a great base of operations for your next boating, fishing, or rafting trip.
