With the busy lifestyles we lead in real life, perhaps the most important part of our vacation experience is the ability to sit back and relax. We have no appointments that need to be kept, no alarm clocks rudely awakening us each morning, and no chores that absolutely need to be completed. A vacation, by its very definition, is a time to relax and recharge and during your upcoming journey to Dripping Springs, we at I Love Dripping Springs fervently want you to spend as much time relaxing as you need! We want you to sleep in as late as you can, to read as long as you want, and to sit outside at night, sipping your favorite cocktail and feeling the night breezes cool your skin every night of your stay. This guide to the top 5 most relaxing Dripping Springs attractions in our Hill Country hometown will give you the peace you seek, and the relaxation you crave!
Dripping Springs Farmers Market, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at 9 AM
What is it about a Farmers Market that just seems to slow our pulses and increase our rate of delight? Shopping on a more harmonic level, meandering up and down the aisles on a beautiful Texas day, and purchasing fresh produce for our families while picking up a few souvenirs for ourselves creates an experience that is practically Zen for those who participate. Take your time, walk at your own pace, and explore the wares of every vendor, and because there are two Farmers Market days in our year-round event, if you don’t see everything the first time, come back again on Saturday!
Fishing at Milton Reimer’s Ranch Park, 23610 Hamilton Pool Road
The best part about fishing is the understanding that you don’t have to catch anything to enjoy the experience! Oh, it definitely helps increase your joy when you do, especially knowing that you can enjoy your catch grilled on the barbecue of your I Love Dripping Springs haven of comfort and relaxation, but it is the time you spend on the banks of the Pedernales River (that runs through the park) that will speak to your soul. Feeling the sun kiss your shoulders, letting the music of the waters play a lullaby, and enjoying the raw beauty of the Texas landscape that surrounds you; all of this takes first place to the fish that you may or may not catch!
It’s Spa Time With These Relaxing Dripping Springs Attractions
We go into the spas that can be found in and around Dripping Springs in greater detail in our “Top 5 Spas in Dripping Springs” series, but as a few hours being spoiled offers the ultimate in relaxation opportunities, you know we had to impart at least a few words on its merits! The spas of Dripping Springs want to spoil you as you partake in a facial at Face to Face Spa in Dripping Springs, a massage at Serasana in nearby Austin, or any of the rejuvenation services provided by Regenerate, also located right here in Dripping Springs. You will soon understand that pampering your body also provides much needed relaxation for your brain!
Wine Tasting for the Win
It’s impossible to feel anything other than relaxed when you are sitting outside at any of our local wineries, tasting grapes, and perhaps (depending on the timing and location of your visit) listening to live music. Dripping Springs is providing competition to the famous wineries of Napa, with Bell Springs Winery (3700 Bell Springs Road) perhaps being our most loved spot! Offering a variety of tasting experiences, including walk-in ones that require no reservations and live entertainment on the weekends, when you find your new favorite wine, you won’t have to buy out the shop, just remember to visit their website upon your return home and purchase all you need to be delivered to your doorstep!
