Blanco, Tx - On April 14, 2010 from 11:00am to 1:00pm, Uptown Blanco Arts and Entertainment will host the unveiling of the new Texas Hill Country Trail Region brochure, the final publication in a series of ten Texas heritage travel guides. Uptown Blanco Arts and Entertainment is an arts, entertainment and dining complex located in downtown Blanco, a city featured in the new brochure.
The guides are the premier publications of the Texas Heritage Trails Program (THTP), the Texas historical Commission’s (THC) award-winning heritage tourism initiative. The program encourages travelers to venture out and rediscover the state’s historic and cultural wonders.
“We are excited to showcase Blanco during the brochure launch,” said Ann Branson, Executive Director of the Texas Hill Country Trail Region. “Blanco is one of the real places of Texas, and spring is a time of beauty throughout the Texas Hill Country Region. We anticipate the trademark bright colors of Texas Wildflowers to blanket the surrounding hills and provide a scenic backdrop for the event.”
The Texas Hill Country Trail Region includes 19 counties: Atascosa, Bandera, Bexar, Blanco, Burnet, Comal, Frio, Gillespie, Hays, Kendall, Kerr, Lampasas, Llano, Medina, Real, Travis, Uvalde, Williamson and Zavala. The new travel guide will feature the region’s rich culture and mystique from flourishing vineyards and delectable cuisines to charming small towns with a compelling blend of diversity in heritage and history.
