The Medina Lake community of Lakehills, TX, is only 12-miles from Bandera, the cowboy capital of the world, and is a wonderful destination to explore this exciting region. Head straight for Bandera if you have a hankering for an authentic Texas experience. Do not be surprised to see horses tied to hitching posts downtown and if you are greeted by the locals like a long lost friend. A stay in Lakehills would not be complete without visiting a ranch and embracing your inner cowboy or girl. The Dixie Dude Ranch offers spectacular trail riding options on loyal and surefooted horses. Do not leaving without trying some real home-cooked food.
