Brenham is located halfway between Houston and Austin amidst the central Texas rolling hills countryside. The town is home to the Texas favorite, Blue Bell Ice Cream which you will find the locals are loyal to and serve exclusively. Brenham is also a spring destination for annual photos in the fields of bluebonnets.
The downtown area is renovated and well maintained. You are sure to find a treasure in one of the shops around the square, or try a unique dish at one of the many restaurants. There is always something to do in this small town. It hosts many festivals, parades, and outdoor concerts year round.
One of my favorite Brenham festivals is The Texas Arts and Music Festival every year in October. This festival showcases Texas artists and musicians. You will be able to witness art being created as new murals are painted on the buildings of historic downtown Brenham.
