Anyone in the Austin / Waco, TX area looking for a quaint getaway or quick road trip to somewhere not too far from home will find that Salado has a lot to offer! A group of us went to Salado Wine Festival this past weekend and were intrigued that such a small town could be filled with so much to do. With many little shops and an old town feel, Salado feels somewhat like a smaller Fredricksburg, TX. Very quaint and B&B ish. I definitely want to go back and explore a little more since we were mainly there for the wine festival and didn’t venture around too much outside of that.
From their website: “The Village of Salado is the best small town in Texas! With several bed and breakfasts and only a short drive up I35, between Waco and Austin, Texas, Salado has something for everyone. Main Street and vicinity is a lively marketplace with over 60 shops and artists galleries. Whether you’re in the mood for fine art, antiques, pottery, crafts, collectibles, Americana, southwest or south-of-the-border decor, handcrafted furniture, trendy or exclusive fashions, gourmet foods and wines or a weekend get-a-way, you’ll find that special something.”

My road trip snack was much needed, but in the end I still think the wine got the best of me! We did eat lunch there (I had a pulled pork taco). There were 20 wineries at the event and I’m pretty sure we tried at least two wine tastings at each vendor. You can read more about the festival here: Salado Wine Festival
And finally below are my purchases from the event. ALL SO GOOD!
