|About||Hiking, antiquing, kayaking, listening to music, shopping in an historic district and eating barbecue: that's Llano! Come visit for a weekend and you may|
The Llano Chamber of Commerce manages the Llano Visitor Center for the city of Llano; we are the welcome center to visitors to our town. Llano is the center of all the happenings in the Texas Hill Country, a little more than an hour to Austin and just two hours to San Antonio. Known since the early 1950s as The Deer Capital of Texas, the density of deer in the Llano Basin is the highest in the nation. In 1981 the 67th legislature designated Llano as the Bluebonnet Capital of Texas, an honor we share with neighboring Burnet County. Wildflowers start to bloom in early March with Bluebonnets, then transition to Indian Paintbrushes, Indian Blankets, Pink Primrose, Wine cups, Mexican Hats and more. We are also known unofficially as the BBQ Capital of Texas, Cooper’s BBQ, Inman’s BBQ and Laird’s BBQ offer some of the best mouthwatering BBQ you will find anywhere, in fact, Cooper’s keeps a van at the Llano Airport for folks that regularly fly in just to eat there.
Llano is located on the pristine, spring fed Llano River with the Roy Inks Bridge connecting the northern and southern sides of the town. There are two lakes, one located just west of the bridge at Badu Park, the other located a mile and a half up river in Llano’s Robinson Park. These shallow lakes are perfect for swimming, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Texas Parks and wildlife release trout twice a year in Grenwelge Park that make for excellent fly fishing opportunities.
Drop by the Llano Visitor Center and Chamber of Commerce located at 100 Train Station Drive in the Depot, we would love to meet you and talk a little more about our little piece of heaven.
