Marble Falls, Texas
Lake Marble Falls, Lake LBJ, Horseshoe Bay are all accessible from the Marble Falls area. Known for its vast waterways and lakes, this area is referred to as the Highland Lakes.
Marble Falls is in the Highland Lakes area of the Texas Hill Country.
I finally got out to Marble Falls and snapped some photos for the website. I've been out this way before and fell in love with the historic downtown portion of the town. Main Street is located west of Hwy 281.
Cruise up and down both sides of Historic Main Street for furniture, antiques, home accessories, and more.
I've never had a problem with parking. There's angled parking on both sides of Main as well as parking down the middle of the street. My son couldn't get over this original use of space.
Marble Falls Restaurants
There are a few restaurants on the water's edge of Lake Marble Falls (aka: Colorado River). You'll find the River City Grille on the west side of hwy 281 on the north side of the lake. I've never eaten there, so I can't give you the thumbs up or down. Let me know if you have feedback and I'll update the website and enter you to win a free myTexas Hill Country T-Shirt.
Marble Falls Lodging
Looking to spend the night? There's a quaint bed and breakfast less than a block off of Main. The Wallace Guest House (circa 1907, phone: 830.798.9808) sports the required white picket fence and is overcome with foliage.
As you leave Main Street and head north on hwy 281 you'll hit Java Bean on your left -- a great little coffee house to sit and relax during the day. If you see the Wal-Mart, you've gone to far. Marble Falls is belabored with car dealerships along the highway which detract from its small town charm, but they need an industry to support the town, and I guess car sales it is.
After leaving Marble Falls, heading north, keep an eye out for the Pottery Ranch. This will show up on your left side and frankly, I don't think you can miss it. Pull in if you're looking for large pots or Texas stars. I checked out the prices and they were really good! I got there at 5:05PM and they had closed at 5:00PM so I was forced to wander the outside lot and didn't get but a peak inside where they had cowboy/Texan furniture and home accessories.
