Dixie Dude Ranch, Bandera TX

I had the good fortune to spend a few days here in April, 2024. I randomly picked it as a result of a search for Texas locations within the path of the April 8th total solar eclipse. It seemed to meet all my criteria for an authentic Texas ranch experience as an aside to the eclipse event, and I went ahead and made a reservation. The reservation was in itself a miracle, since they were technically full and had been for a couple of years. Anyway, suffice it to say that the eclipse was a bust since we had heavy cloud cover on that day, but it didn’t seem to matter in the grand scheme of things, because the entire experience was one that I wouldn’t have missed for anything. Great place, great people, great food. Loved every minute. More info here : https://dixieduderanch.com/
