Amistad National Recreation Area, the Judge Roy Bean Visitors' Center and Botanical Garden, Seminole Canyon State Park, and the Briscoe-Garner Museum, along with ghost towns, ancient rock art, sweeping vistas, and unique flora and fauna, are just a few of the reasons that so many travelers make this distinctive section of the Lone Star State their preferred destination.

Visitor's Guide to Southwest Texas is chock-full of helpful maps, engaging descriptions of points of interest, colorful photography, and pro tips on where to stay, what to do, and how to get there. There's even a trivia quiz to keep travelers entertained and informed while en route. This first-ever guide to the Texas 'Hill Country-Desert Trail' is your indispensable travel companion for unforgettable discoveries in the wide open spaces"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
