I didn’t live in Bandera, Texas and not enjoy it. I enjoyed it so much that my family and I truly consider that place home. Of course I wasn’t born and raised there, but if you are ever looking to be happy in an amazing small town – move to Bandera.

When it comes to this list of the top 5 things to do in Bandera, I struggled. You see, to really experience and be overtaken by this place you need years. More than likely though, you will only be passing through for a nice little visit. So here are the things I recommend you partake in.
