Hico Happenings

To start off my year right, I took a quick road trip to a small town called Hico, which is about an hour away from my hometown.
I made banana nut muffins the night before and packed a bag with a few more snacks to eat on the road and made hot chocolate in the morning to take with me.

I’m more of a scenic type of girl so I take back roads until I reach my destination.
Many of you may have never even heard of Hico, I’ll admit I didn’t know it was even a town in Texas until I stumbled upon it last year while making my way to San Antonio. At the time I was not able to explore it the way I wanted to and I knew someday I would visit again.

When I finally arrived in Hico, I made my way to the Koffee Kup which is one of Hico’s landmark restaurants.

Each meal is served with fresh rolls and cornbread and everything is homemade and from scratch.

Next I visited Opera House Antiques which was the towns former Opera house dated back to 1895!

Afterwards, I walked through downtown and saw this cute shop called, Hico Popcorn Works.

There are so many options to choose from and best of all, you are able to sample them all! In addition to popcorn, the shop also sold homemade fudge.

While walking through the town, I realized that most of it is untouched with it’s old charm and vintage advertisements still painted on the side of the brick walls of buildings.

If you are looking for a quick and quiet getaway with tons of antiquing, Hico is the town for you!
