Destination guide

Marble Falls is the heart of Texas

With the rolling Texan plains on one side and the snaking Colorado River on the other, countless wineries and vineyards in the hills, and the waters of Lyndon B Johnson Lake beckoning to the west, Marble Falls might just have everything you need for that family trip to the Lone Star State. You can immerse yourself in old rancher history, cast the nets on fishing expeditions, go wild swimming in natural springs, horseback through the cypress forests, or just relax and watch the world go by from your Marble Falls vacation rentals.

Things to do

Waterfalls and Texan wonders in Marble Falls

Crack out the hiking boots and camera and be sure to leave behind your cozy Marble Falls vacation rentals to see the beauty of the Texan backcountry. You can delve into the Colorado Bend State Park, where crashing waterfalls and plunge pools line the cliffs. Or, you can take a dip in the wild Krause Springs, where cypress trees loom overhead. Alternatively, try to chase the heritage of the Lone Star State. For that there's the Falls on the Colorado Museum with its old grist mills and bison bones, and local wineries like Flat Creek.


Find your explorer feet in Marble Falls

Whether you're slinging the fishing rod on the waters of nearby reservoirs, pontoon boating under the hot Texan sun, or saddling up the horses for a riding outing like the ranchers of old across the bush-peppered plains of Burnet County, you can rest assured that Marble Falls will help you discover that inner adventurer. There are more relaxing pursuits, too – think lazing on lakeside pebble beaches, berry picking in rustic farms, taking guided tours of the Lone Star wine country, or unwinding in a nearby spa for well-deserved pampering.


Spring blooms and fall living in Marble Falls

Ask any locals of Marble Falls and they'll tell you – the best times of year in this waterside town on the Colorado River are spring and fall. With temperatures in the 70s and 80s, and much drier air than during the height of the summer, you're bound to have the perfect conditions for swimming in the springs and plunge pools. What's more, there tend to be fewer people about then, which means you can have the most luxurious pads and coveted Marble Falls vacation rentals on Lake Lyndon B Johnson all for yourself.

Natural features

Marble Falls offers creeks and canyons

Marble Falls sits in the valley of the Colorado River as it meanders southwards to meet the Gulf of Mexico. It's surrounded by low ridges of carved stone – just look up to Granite Mountain on the horizon. Water is the main natural draw though. People come to rent Marble Falls vacation rentals on the banks of Lake Lyndon B Johnson to have swimming coves and boating jetties on their doorstep. Others stay along the river to the east and west, where the Inks Lake State Park and the Colorado Bend State Park have waterfalls and campgrounds.
