Tapatio Springs Resort Weekend + A Giveaway!

A few weeks ago Alex, Turner and I headed south to Boerne, TX to spend the weekend at Tapatio Springs, a hill country resort and spa.  It was a great getaway and only a short 2 hour drive from Austin. It was just what we needed for a short family vacation.  We spent most of our time in the pool, and if we weren't in the pool we were hanging out outside. It's nestled in the TX Hill Country so it's quiet and you are surrounded by trees.

Tapatio Springs’ new $1 million pool and bar area features an expanded pool deck, curved-tube water slide, hot tub, fire pits, shuffleboard courts and an outdoor bar with flat-screen televisions. Turner went down that slide over 100 times by himself. To say he was obsessed is an understatement.

The best PB&J we've ever had....double stacked with local TX strawberry jam!

After we showered and relaxed a bit in our room, we headed to the resort's restaurant, La Cascada.  The food and ambience were amazing, but Turner was a stinker. He did NOT want to sit still, so we had no shame in trying to entertain him with our phones. We enjoyed steak, chicken, cheese grits, brussel sprouts and an amazing cheese plate!


Prior to going to Tapatio Springs, we found out George Strait was the co-owner so we jammed out to his music the entire drive.  When we arrived at the resort, Turner kept asking where George Strait was...I was hoping we would see him too! Sadly, he wasn't there that weekend, but we did get to stare at this great wall covered in George Strait memorabilia. After dinner we headed out to the patio to enjoy live music, and Turner went crazy running around in the grass. It's like he'd never seen a field before.

Sunday morning we headed back to the restaurant for breakfast, and had a lovely view of the golf course while sitting on the patio. Maybe the only good thing about an early rising toddler is that we had the patio all to ourselves. Alex and I didn't get a chance to golf, but they have an amazing course!

After breakfast we headed back to the pool for a few more hours before hitting the road. While Alex and Turner swam, I checked out the Puresol Spa, which had an amazing therapeutic Salt Cave. I spent 30 minutes by myself napping inside...just what this mom in her first trimester needed.  

It was a short and sweet mini vacation, and I highly recommend checking it out! Great for families, romantic getaways, a girls weekend and more. It's much more affordable than other resorts in Texas, and the quaint town of Boerne is only a ten minute drive away. Boerne has a historic downtown and a ton of antique shops (my favorite kind of shopping)!

Now to the best part. I'm very excited to be hosting a GIVEAWAY of a 1 Night Stay for 4 (including complimentary meals) and 4 tickets to Six Flags Fiesta Texas to one lucky winner! Please enter using the Rafflecopter entry form below. Good luck!

Great review of Tapatio Springs! My husband golfs and we've been for various tournaments as well as whenever I'm close I drag whoever I'm with for a tour and a a meal. I'm from NE Ohio and a lover of Texas and after a decade we are FINALLY truly within grasp of retiring to that area in particular :)
