The New York Times recommends Texas Hill Country as a lush, colorful, region “evocative of Tuscany or the South of France” with its Old World style, German-style beer gardens, food, music, and festivals.  We also recommend the high-quality lifestyle, great schools, recreation, and neighborly communities for raising a family, retiring, and vacationing.
