Luckenbach, Texas

Luckenbach, Texas General Store and Post Office

Willie and Waylon once wailed about Luckenbach, Texas, – in fact, they put this place on the map.  Well now we can say we’ve been there!  It’s not much when nothing’s going on in the ‘town’… in fact, they sell a bumper sticker in the General Store / Post Office reporting the population at the last census was three – that’s right, three.  But people come from far and wide for the music and the party in the dance hall.  We picked up a flyer and see there’s music playing this weekend – we might just have to come back, for as the lyrics to the famed song say, “Out in Luckenbach, Texas ain’t nobody feelin’ no pain.”  That sounds like a great Saturday!

The next time you find yourself near San Antonio or Austin, we recommend that you take a little detour to Luckenbach. It’s easy to see why there’s a song written about this very unique place.
