Local Color and Culture

Kudos for Bastrop!

The city of Austin gets most of the attention in this part of Central Texas, but there are a lot of really great small towns nearby, each with its own attraction and culture.  Today, Bastrop, southeast of Austin, gets some important, and well-deserved, recognition:

Honoring history brings Bastrop national award

(Austin American-Statesman, 02/03/10)

“City leaders have worked to keep it that way, reviving several city blocks of century-old buildings partly through grants for investors and with a yearly festival called Yesterfest that celebrates the original cultures that first settled Bastrop.  Today, the National Trust for Historic Preservation will recognize the city as one of a dozen that the organization lists this year as a “distinctive destination,” where travelers can find unique sites and diversity.  ‘They have a very vibrant small downtown,’ the national organization’s regional director Jonathan Poston said. ‘And the jury was very impressed with the festival.'”

Bastrop offers a small town atmosphere on the Colorado River, with a large centrally located park and River Walk, and a revitalized downtown area.  Bastrop State Park is just minutes away in a beautiful pine forest, and Buescher State Park is just around the corner, too.
