You’ve heard tall tales that a good Tex-Mex meal is the stuff of legends, and now that you’ve traveled to Burnet, Texas, you know it to be true. There’s just something about the commitment to quality in the savory strips of pork that have been cooked all day to create your carnitas tacos that warms you to the bone—and makes you yearn for a long lost abuela out there, readily available to whip up home-cooked meals. Alas, you have no abuela, but you’ll still feel like part of the family when you’re welcomed into one of the comfortable hotels in Burnet.
Not in the mood to feast on enchiladas and chile rellenos? Meander down to the Highland Lakes to enjoy a picnic with queso dip and chips instead. Will you enjoy your salted treasures on the shores of Inks Lake, Lake Buchanan, or Lake Lyndon B. Johnson? Whichever lake you choose to gaze upon, you’ll be treated to views of pristine waters. Conjure up the famed outdoorsman John Muir’s sage words, “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” Ah, yes. Rekindling your love of the great outdoors and replenishing your soul can be as simple as skipping stones on Lake Buchanan or sitting underneath the shade of a tree and reading your favorite book of poetry. Once dusk has crept its way onto the sandy bank where you rest, pack up your things and head to one of the Burnet hotels where you can lay your head for a night’s repose.
Heed the call of the Lone Star State and traverse the area comfortably by reserving your pick of Burnet rental cars.

You can even choose to forego Burnet motels for an evening in favor of one of the eclectic Austin hotels available through Travelocity—because spontaneity is something experienced travelers like you can’t do without.
