    Burnet

    Spring is the perfect time

    Attractions in the Burnet area include the Highland Lakes, Longhorn Cavern, Inks Lake State Park, the Historic Burnet Square, the Highland Lakes Air Museum and many more.

    Spring is the perfect time to explore Burnet, named “Bluebonnet Capital of Texas” by the 67th Texas Legislature. And if you bring your family on the second weekend in April, you’ll find yourself in the middle of the biggest event on the full calendar of fun.

    Held every April, the Annual Bluebonnet Festival offers contests, games, activities for all ages, parades, exhibits, arts and crafts. There’s even a spectacular air show featuring the World War II planes of the Highland Lakes Squadron of the Commemorative Air Force.

    Watch the Burnet Gunfighters to see how the West was “really” won, or take a ride on the Hill Country Flyer, brought to the area by the Austin Steam Train Association.

    While visiting, enjoy “Art in the Park” by Hamilton Creek, or visit historical Fort Croghan.

    Take a leisurely drive through the flower-strewn hills to Inks Lake State Park, Canyon of the Eagles (with its famed Vanishing Texas River Cruise), or explore Longhorn Caverns.

    Discover the Lakes, Hills and History in its springtime finest!
