Burnet

Burnet- Nestled at the edge of the spectacular Texas Hill Country about 50 miles northwest of Austin, amidst the beautiful Highland Lakes, is the historic community of Burnet. Burnet was originally established in the mid 1800s as a fort on the Texas frontier. Modern Burnet has kept with its pioneering routes while also adapting to the modern age. Today Burnet is considered the jewel of the Highland Lakes.

Throughout the year, the City of Burnet offers a vast array of events and activities for all ages. From the spring splash of bluebonnets and wildflowers to the fall festival of arts on the Arts and Crafts Trail, from the winter wonderland of the spectacular Christmas musical light display to the summer frontier shoot-outs and vintage steam train tours, Burnet is alive with sights and sounds that make it one of the Hill Country's most popular destination spots in the state of Texas.
