I'm on my way Saturday to Caprock Canyons SP near Quitaque and will probably spend a day up around Palo Duro Canyon as well. Palo Duro has the musical performance during the summer. And I know that in July it wasn't very warm when I overnighted there 2 years ago.

New Braunfels is a nice place to visit in the hill country, located in between San Antonio and Austin. Gruene is here and is nice; there is lots to do in Gruene with the shops and restaurants. There is also Schliterbahn if you care for the water sports.

You can't forget the big bend area and Davis Mountain area, I have not been to big bend but might go there next spring this spring and summer are already booked.
I have been to Palo Duro several times but never got to see the play. There is a lot of state camping spots in the canyon but they are all Water and Electric only. If you go to Palo Duro you need to take a 45 mile trip east of Amarillo on I-40 to Groom to see the largest cross in the western hemisphere it is 190 foot tall. Then just about west of Amarillo is the Cadillac Ranch no not that type of ranch, there are 10 Cadillacs buried to their dash in a field if you go take a can or two of spray paint and have fun.

Then head up to Canyon Lake. A number of RV parks and COE campgrounds up here, and the lake truly is beautiful. The Dinosaur Tracks Museum is on the south side of the lake, River Road is a gorgeous car, motorcycle, or bicycle drive along the Guadalupe River, and both New Braunfels and Canyon Lake are close to http://www.naturalbridgecaverns.com/.

We just visited the LBJ ranch and the house is now open for a tour and it is wonderful.

We stayed at Miller Creek in Johnson City and enjoyed it.

Pecan St Brewery in JC is very nice.

Did not enjoy the wineries, very expensive and not so much to our liking.

We really like Austin, especially the Saxon Pub and the Continental Club.

The Pacific War museum in Fredericksburg is worthwhile.

There is more to Texas than the Hill Country, granted there is a lot to see there. Try The Big Thicket/Piney Woods area. Well, the Big Thicket is an amazing botanical wonderland. Located in an area where different ecological systems converge, the visitor can view everything from swamps and moss draped trees to Pine Forests.
