Bandera Travel Guide

Howdy Bandera! Texas cowboy tradition is alive and well in this western town, as this is the cowboy capital of the world, complete with Dude Ranches, Honky Tonks, and Saloons and all less than an hour away from San Antonio.

Things to Do in Bandera

The Frontier Times Museum is a good place to start and catch up on what made Bandera so important to the preservation of Texan cowboy traditions. Silver Spur Ranch has hayrides, animals, horse rides, and long horn cattle where you might learn some cowboy rope tricks too. Check out Dixie Dude Ranch, the oldest dude ranch in Texas, while in town, too. Bandera County has more than 200 different bird species, look out for them at the Natural Area and Bandera City Park. Rodeos, scenic walks, drives, and horse back trails are also popular here with tourists and locals alike. There's always something going on at the Honky Tonks. With live music and artists mingling, you'll get your inner cowboy/girl on with no trouble at all.
