Introducing You to Two Small Towns with Texas Charm!

I want to introduce you to two small towns with Texas Charm!

Texas has everything. World class cities, southern hospitality, amazing nature reserves, and history. One of my favorite travel themes in Texas is that of the small, hometown, downtown! Texas is full of small town gems, and I would like to share two of them with you! Don’t worry, there will be more!

First, Georgetown, Texas, just an hour north of Austin off I-35.

These facades are so pretty! Did you know that in the late 1800s they actually ordered these facades from a catalog???

It really took me back to a time before my time!

Confession: I spent so much time in Blooms! It really took me back to my childhood with its candy, soda pops, and crazy gifts!

Hey Boomers, recognize these????? and taking our pop bottles back to the grocery for a dime?

Oh Henry! Sugar Daddies! Black Cows!

  3. I so love small towns and I haven’t spent much time in Texas. Would love to check these towns out and pick up some Charleston Chews. 🙂

  4. Wow look at all those sodas! Very cute small towns for sure. I have yet to go to Texas.

  5. These Texas towns do look quite charming. While I love visiting big cities, I also find that small towns are not to be missed. I’ve been itching to travel in Texas, so thanks for putting these spots on my radar!
