Luckenbach Day Trip

HomeAttractionsLuckenbach Day Trip

Like many of us, you grew up listening to the music of the country greats. Today’s superstars are filled with talent, but the old school geniuses—Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, and Merle Haggard—really knew how to get us in the feels with their songs, and chances are you are right now humming the tune to Luckenbach, Texas and becoming excited about getting the opportunity to visit the subject of that song! Luckenbach, Texas, located just about 50 miles away from Dripping Springs, is the smallest town in Texas, but the adventures you enjoy there will hold a big spot in your heart!

Don’t Blink in Luckenbach!

Don’t blink or you will miss the many charms of this small town! All the biggest names in the country music world know and love Luckenbach, and during your visit, you too will fall in love with a place that used to be the site of 4th of July picnics thrown by none other than the redheaded stranger himself! Compare the charms of the Luckenbach Dance Hall to the other historic dance hall of Gruene Hall, and as you sip on cold beers, practice your two step, and bask in the ambience of this historic spot, chances are if you listen closely, you can hear the echoes of laughter and good times from those who have gone before you! Take a selfie in front of the original post office, shaded by an ancient oak; it’s a space that harkens back to the days when all the gossip of the day was shared within its shelter. Once the center of town, the post office was active until 1971, when Luckenbach’s residents had all but deserted it. Today the town is no longer incorporated, but the travelers who visit on a daily basis keep it alive. Pick up souvenirs at the general store, enjoy real Texas barbecue at the Luckenbach Feed Lot, and take a cute picture at the Luckenbach Kissing Booth, forever memorializing your time spent in this immortal town. Music is always playing in Luckenbach, both day and night, but if you come at night, be sure to bring your dancing boots and enjoy a historic night in the Luckenbach Dance Hall!
