Nestled about 29 miles northeast of Austin in Williamson County, the City of Taylor offers a cozy small-town atmosphere with a reputation for live music, artisan crafts, and delicious barbeque. The past decade has brought tremendous growth to Taylor, and with it has come many new and exciting experiences for visitors.
If live music is your fancy, you can catch some of the best musicians on one of Taylor’s stages every weekend. For the hungry traveler, Taylor claims a few of the best barbeque spots on the infamous Texas BBQ Trail. Louie Mueller Barbecue has been serving BBQ in Taylor since 1949 and is recognized as a good place to start the BBQ trail.
You can soak up the sun at one of the abundant outdoor spaces such as the City’s five major parks, a hike and bike trail, fishing pier, basketball and tennis courts, two pools, splash pads, and even a state-of-the-art skate park. Or if a leisurely stroll is more your speed, explore the beautiful buildings on an architectural walking tour through the historic downtown area.
