Planning a walkabout

I take solo trips every once in a while; just weekend getaways with a tent. I've lived the past 6 years in L.A. and was familiar with the surroundings and where I wanted to visit, but I just moved to Austin TX. I have no idea what is around me.

So, its time to get away. From Austin, I need suggestions in a 4-ish hour radius. I prefer solitude with the option of interaction, so suggesting a theme park or a state fair might not work for me. Connection with nature and roughing it are fine ideas. I like the option of heading into a tiny little town for a beer if I want social input, but I'm just looking for a flood of ideas at this point.

Hey, Curtis, first of all Welcome to Texas

There are so many great places around your area so get ready for some real fun and super scenery.

When we lived West of Lampasas, one of our favorite spots to recreate was Colorado Bend State Park and there are so many places that surround that area for all types of people.

Hiking trails galore and waterfalls extrodinare. There is also Gorman Falls and Gorman Cave - - - some of this is available with tour guides but most all of it can be done just by yourself if you want to.

I personally think it is the finest kickback/walkabout in Texas.

Here is their website - - - Enjoy Texas

P.S. don't know if you are a fisherman or not, but they have a Spring White Bass spawning run that is something to behold.
