With all the great Brenham attractions to choose from, a weekend at the Bed and Breakfast is an easy decision!  If looking for  things to do while in Brenham, look no further.  We have compiled for you a list of some of the best Brenham attractions to include during your time in our beautiful part of the world.  Some of the attractions are seasonal and some are not.  Be sure to give us a call to book and we can tell you what’s going on while you will be staying with us at the ranch!

This list is in no particular order of priority nor is it comprehensive.  When you call,  we may have other offerings to add to your list to choose from as things are always evolving.

The Round Top Antiques Fairs:  Though still called the Round Top Antiques Fairs as homage to the original fairs started over 35 years ago, the antiques fairs are spread out over many miles and through many little towns, including Brenham.  The Antique Fairs are held twice a year, Spring and Fall and last for approximately a three week period.  You will find everything from Flea Market Fare to high end European.  Come with comfortable shoes, layered clothing (you never know what the weather will be doing) and cash plus credit cards.  If the treasures you find are too large to tote, many of the vendors ship!

Wineries/Breweries:  For those who enjoy alcoholic beverages and for those who have never done a winery tour/tasting, we have 4 active boutique wineries and a micro-brewery that are open to the public.  Each is unique and special in its’ own way and lots of fun to visit:  Texas Star Winery, Saddlehorn Winery,  Pleasant Hill Winery,  Windy Winery and Brenham Brewery.

Arts/Culture:  Brenham is also home to Unity Theatre and O’Donnell Performaning Arts Center, two wonderful establishments that offer live theatre….some of which rivals New York Broadway but in a more intimate setting.  There are also several art galleries with rotating mediums and displays that are sure to intrigue any visitor.

Historical:  Built in the 1800’s, Brenham is known for its’ historical downtown district where you can do a self-guided tour of the amazing original architecture of our downtown buildings along with an enjoyable shopping adventure stopping in some of the quaint shops now housed in these historical buildings.   Be sure to pick up a map from the Visitor’s Center located in The Simon Theatre in downtown Brenham that gives you the route to walk along with interesting details of each building, what type of merchants were housed there and information on the builder/proprietor.

Brenham is also known as the Birthplace of Texas and there is a boatload of history to entice you to step into the past.  Just check out the Visitors Center for all kinds of brochures and options, which range from tours, re-enactments, museums to archeological treasures.

There are so many Brenham attractions to choose from during your stay.  This list is just a precursor to what’s in store and just waiting for you to come up for a stay!  What are you waiting for?  Book your room now and let’s start planning your weekend getaway to Brenham Texas!
