Jul 08, 2021 | Round Top Road Trip

Think the list of things to do in Round Top begins and ends with our world-famous antiques shows? Think again, y’all. Our tiny town is teeming with great activity all year long, and the summer season is no exception. From primo spots to enjoy meals on the patio, to great places to indulge in a little retail therapy, summer’s pretty sweet ‘round here. Wanna learn more? We’ve pulled together a partial list of our favorite things to do in Round Top during these warm weather months. Read up, get to plannin’ — and then make your way out to see us!

Sip on Somethin’ Amazing
When the temperatures climb, hydration’s important. Lucky thing we’ve got all sorts of stellar places to stop off for a cold one. A margarita from Mandito’s is sure to hit the spot, and you can’t go wrong with a cold brew from Teague’s Tavern, Round Top Brewing or Popi Burger. If wine’s more your style, Prost on Block 29 and Lulu’s offer a fantastic variety — and there are a number of wonderful wineries around!

Soak Up Some A/C at Our Incredible Retail Shops
A little air conditioning goes a long way in Texas. (And if you can enjoy it amid a shopping spree? All the better!) The truth is, with new businesses making their way to town all the time — and existing ones always growing and changing — no two shopping trips are ever alike. Townsend Provisions, CURATE by StashHumble Donkey Studio and the many great stores at Round Top Village are a few of our favorite shopping stops!

Keep Cool by the Pool
Is there anything better than the sweet respite of a crystal-clear swimming pool? (Answer: Nope!) There are a few lovely places to dip your feet in and relax right here in Round Top! Hotel Lulu’s stunning setup gives you a place to kick back in the heart of town! Goodnight Round Top’s new dipping pool is a welcome retreat surrounded by nature, while the Frenchie’s luxurious offerings include both an outdoor pool and hot tub.

That’s just the start of all the things there are to do in Round Top! Our wonderful lodging options offer great opportunities to enjoy evenings under big Texas skies, for instance — and many feature firepits and fabulous porches perfect for gathering together with friends. Planning a road trip up our way this summer? We look forward to seeing you! And we’re glad to answer any questions you might have. Feel free to reach out!
