Central Texas

“I must say as to what I have seen of Texas it is the garden spot of the world. The best land and the best prospects for health I ever saw, and I do believe it is a fortune to any man to come here. There is a world of country here to settle.” – Davy Crockett, Alamo defender, 1836.

Central Texas is a region in Texas surrounding Austin and roughly bordered by Brady to Kerrville to La Grange to Waco.
