If you just want a day to hang out in town, you could just lounge around at O.P. Schnabel Park. There’s a couple pavilions with picnic tables to sit in (or, if you’re looking to have an event there, you can rent one), and there’s also different trailheads for you to explore. The park is surrounded by Oak Trees and Mountain Laurels, so it’s a great place to de-stress.

Food scene

If you want to relax at a winery, stop by the Helotes Creek Winery. Go and have a drink with friends, or go to do a wine tasting or a sip-and-shop; reviews rave about the affordable prices, friendly owners, laid-back and inviting atmosphere, and of course, about the wine - namely the Malbec and the Blackberry Wine.

Don’t be fooled by the name - this place isn’t a store. Better known as Floore’s, it’s actually a dance hall and cafe, and since it was opened in 1942 by John T. Floore, it’s hosted music legends such as Willie Nelson (who was partners with John T. Floore and mentions Floore’s in his song, “Shotgun Willie”), Patsy Cline, Bob Dylan, Elvis, BB King, and more. There’s a lot of musical history here, so if you get a chance to see an artist perform here, do it! Floore’s is also well known for the tamales, homemade bread, and other Texas-style cafe food.
