Now that you’ve got the lowdown on just what the Bee Cave Buzz is about, it’s time to start planning your trip. Below are a few sample itineraries to help you plan your visit.

One-Day Getaway Itinerary

Start your day with a short drive to Hamilton Pool Reserve just 20 minutes west of Bee Cave. Created when the dome of an underground river collapsed due to massive erosion thousands of years ago, Hamilton Pool’s underground grotto is well worth hiking and exploring before taking a cool dip in the natural pool and sunbathing on the shore. Reservations are recommended as time slots for visits often fill up weeks in advance.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head to the Hill Country Galleria in the heart of Bee Cave to satisfy your hunger and urge to shop. A sophisticated lifestyle center featuring major brand-name shops, a diverse array of restaurants, Whole Foods Market, and a movie theater, Hill Country Galleria is a unique experience in and of itself. The Galleria hosts over 150 family-oriented events each year, including the Lone Star Farmers Market on Sundays.

Finish off your day in Bee Cave with dinner on the rooftop terrace of Meridian 98 in the Sonesta Bee Cave Hotel. Meridian 98 is the ideal spot to take in a captivating Hill Country sunset while enjoying Texas-style tapas and inspired specialty cocktails.
