Burnet Association of Merchants
Welcome to Wonderful Burnet!
Burnet is a small Central Texas town waiting for you to come and shop, dine and play. Nestled in the hill country near Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, Lake LBJ and Lake Marble Falls, it is handy to a state park with great camping, boating, fishing and hiking. You can also explore the caves at the Longhorn Caves facility.
Burnet is also fast becoming the antique center for the hill country. There are shops of all kinds for you to wander through and hunt for unusual treasures, such as specialty shops for the ladies, and outfitters store and pickup truck stores for the men. Shopping for everyone.
Great dining with home cooking, barbque, Chinese and Mexican restaurants all ready to serve you along with pizza and a great buffet, great steaks, and specialty burgers facilities. We also have yogurt and homemade ice cream. There are plans for a fine dining facility located in a three restaurant complex including the relocated historical Craddock house in the works. Wine bottling and tasting is coming to the historic downtown courthouse square in the near future.
We also have local parks including one on Delaware Creek available for picnics, fishing, musical events and relaxing. A bed and breakfast, name brand motels as well as small town motels are available for your overnight stays.
Fort Croghan is a trip back it time to see the fort and historical items from the past.
The Blue Bonnet Festival, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce the second week of April, is great fun event with shopping, eating and a parade all located around the Courthouse square.
Every December a local Baptist church enacts the Town of Bethlehem production with local residents playing the parts of the town people of Bethlehem. Attendance is in the thousands.
The Burnet Association of Merchants also sponsors five events during the year including City Wide Garage and Antique shows in May and November and an Art Festival in September.
