Seniors Find Fun in Kyle, TX

If you’re searching for senior living in the area, you might be wondering what there is to do. We’ve outlined some of the top ways seniors are having fun in Kyle, TX.

Exploring food and wine

Kyle is located between Austin and San Antonio on I-35 and is known as The Pie Capital of Texas. It’s earned that name for good reason; a visit to the famous Texas Pie Company will prove it. You can try staples like Southern pecan, chocolate fudge, Dutch apple, or savory treats like their ham and cheddar quiche. You’re sure to find something delicious to satisfy your sweet (or savory) tooth.

Now that you’ve got dessert covered, head over to Milt’s Pit BBQ for lunch. You’ll find the best Texas brisket and homemade sides in Hays County!

In addition to delicious eats, you’ll also find several great wineries to explore in the nearby Hill Country. At Driftwood Estate Winery & Vineyard you can appreciate the views as well as the wine made with Texas grapes. If you’re looking for the perfect overnight stay, head to the Fall Creek Country Inn after a few glasses of Lescalo Chenin Blanc at the vineyard.

Finally, be sure to head over to The Dutchman Family Winery in Driftwood, recognized by HGTV as one of the country’s most beautiful wineries. You’ll enjoy varieties of Vermentino, Sangiovese, and Dolcetto in a beautiful, Tuscan-style villa.

Checking out the scenery

You could snap a photo of a Great Blue Heron or catch (and release) a Largemouth Bass at Lake Kyle. There are numerous plant and animal species to spot at this local park and recreation area. You could also head out for a stroll at City Square Park and stay for a local event like the Lion’s Club Fajita Fiesta.

After a day at the park, head over to Evo Entertainment to grab some popcorn (or a meal from the full menu) and catch a flick.
