i must confess…i must digress – to 2010. a quick trip down to Austin and a short drive over to Gruene for a little over 24 hour trip. you ask why go to all that trouble for so little time? 2 reasons – 1) because the place is so darn authentic – it felt like a longer escape 2) HELLO…LYLE LOVETT!!!
good news – Jet Blue flies direct from Boston to Austin. we stayed in a charming B&B – Gruene Homestead Inn – where we had our own little cottage & it included a delicious breakfast the next day. if you ever have the chance to go to Gruene – DO IT! you will not be sorry you did. to learn more about historic Gruene and all its charm go to gruenetexas.com
TRIP TIP – make time to shop at the gruene general store. there is absolutely something there for any and everybody!
