Bastrop Texas is an interesting little town southeast of Austin. We headed there with our Austin family to check things out. We found a place to park and found a nice map of the town on a large display board. This let us kind of make some plans for our adventure.
We enjoyed the visitor center that also had a museum as well. The history of Bastrop is a tale of the old West that is fun to learn. The town is proud of its heritage and rightly so.
We enjoyed the 602 Brewery and Restaurant for a beer and a delicious meal. (read our review of the 602 Brewery here) After our meal we walked around the Main Street looking at the stores and shops. We also took a driving tour that led us to several historic homes in and around the downtown area.
All in all we really enjoyed seeing Bastrop. There seem to be a lot of activities planned during the spring and summer months. There are over 30 festivals planned each year. The 900 acre Lake Bastrop has a plethora of recreational opportunities. This town is proud of its heritage and is most welcoming to visitors. Put Bastrop on your list of Central Texas places to visit.
