Welcome to Bandera
It's not always easy to find real, live cowboys in Texas, but the pickin's are ripe in Bandera, which brands itself the Cowboy Capital of the World. There are certainly lots of dude ranches around, and rodeos and horseback riding are everywhere you look. Another great reason to come to Bandera? Drinking beer and dancing in one of its many hole-in-the-wall cowboy bars and honky-tonk clubs, where you'll find friendly locals, good live music and a rich atmosphere. Giddy up!
