Spicewood is a Texas town nestled along Lake Travis with ziplining, BBQ and it's even the home of Country Music Legend Willie Nelson. Need I say more…
You will undoubtedly want to kickstart your day with a cup of coffee from Cuvee Coffee, one of the most respected specialty roasters in America that is hidden behind a metal gate marked inconspicuously with a “C”. If you find it, then you can join them for a “cupping” and get a tour from the guys roasting the beans.
If you like wine more than coffee, then head to Spicewood Vineyards for a tour and tasting. This quaint winery was founded 20 years ago and continues its tradition of crafting delicious wines in the Hill Country.
Unfortunately Willie Nelson’s “Luck, Texas” ranch isn’t open to the public, just the occasional fan reunions each year — but you can still crank up the tunes as you cruise around town and search for the red-headed stranger.
Cypress Valley Canopy Tours
To indulge in the adventurous side of Spicewood, cruise through the air on a Zipline tour at Cypress Valley Canopy Tours! You’ll feel like Superman soaring over the hills and trees.
Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area
Hit the trails with your mountain bike at Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area on the banks of Lake Travis where there’s no shortage of intense rides and scenic views!
If the weather is right, take a dip in Krause Springs, a hidden-oasis swimming hole complete with rope swing, sunbathing rocks, waterfalls and a hidden grotto. This might just be heaven on earth!
After a day like this, you will be starving. So indulge in the “spicy” BBQ (or any BBQ) from Opie’s Barbecue. The sweet and spicy ribs are killer, as is the brisket, sausage, chicken, banana pudding, spicy creamed corn…you get the picture….everything is good.
Poodie's Hilltop Roadhouse
To cap off your day with some live music or to eat one of the best burgers in Texas, head to Poodie’s Hilltop Roadhouse. Poodie was Willie Nelson’s longtime stage manager and, before passing, was the proprietor behind one of the best burgers in Texas. Enjoy a burger, a cold one and an incredible view at Poodies.
