Not everyone is a fan of the outdoors, no matter how beautiful and serene it may be, which can seem to be a challenge when trying to plan out a vacation, especially when visiting a place like Dripping Springs in Texas, where hiking, biking, even swimming is popular most of the year. Fortunately, however, there are plenty of things you can do indoors as well and this guide to some of our favorite indoor activities will bring you a new appreciation of how much Texas has to offer and how much fun you can have when you choose to stay home and explore the indoor amenities our I Love Dripping Springs vacation escapes provide. And even if you do love to do of all the outdoor activities that will bring you a greater understanding of what makes our state so beautiful, the occasional rainy day will encourage you to take the fun times indoors with these indoor activities in Dripping Springs!

Texas Hill Country Olive Co. 2530 W Fitzhugh Road in Dripping Springs
Back in the dark ages, our cooking oil usage was often nothing more than store-brand vegetable oils that came in giant bottles. We didn’t understand that oil COULD be healthy, and that by adding natural herbs and spices, we could change the taste of an entire meal. Today, of course, we all understand the health benefits to olive oil, and Texas Hill Country Olive Company actually offers a tasting room in which you can try all their flavors before you buy! Offering tours of the orchards that may be saved for another day, a shop filled with their award-winning oils, vinegars, and even skincare items, and an online website that will allow you to continue purchasing your favorites without having to fly to Dripping Springs every time you run out of their jalapeño infused olive oil.

Explore the Comforts of Your I Love Dripping Springs Sanctuary
Some of your most memorable moments won’t happen on the roads of Dripping Springs, rather, they will take place inside the comfortable spaces you chose to make your own during your Texas trip! Take a nap on a rainy afternoon, lulled into a refreshing sleep by the smell of fresh fallen rain, the sound of the drops hitting the roof, and maybe the sounds of laughter on state-of-the-art televisions playing softly in the background.

Bake cookies in fully equipped kitchens, play board games while gathered around large dining room tables, and soak in sumptuous tubs that are deep and embracing, perhaps while you read, sip, and let soft music prepare you for a night’s sleep so deep and recharging, you will awaken the next morning ready to face a new day of indoor activities and adventures.
