Four Things to Do: Round Top

Stroll the squares: Round Top historically has benefited from forward-thinking patrons such as Ima Hogg, Faith Bybee and Hazel Ledbetter among others. The authenticity of Henkel Square and Bybee Square—with their stores and galleries—exists because those women celebrated the past by saving buildings. Today, the Massey family and the Rausch family uphold the local tradition of preserving tradition.

Rub elbows with champions: The Cubettes of Round Top-Carmine High School secured a state volleyball crown in 2015—their sixth in school history. RTCHS teams have qualified for the state volleyball tournament 14 times in school history.

Savor burgers and brews: The Round Top Rifle Hall offers sustenance and thirst-quenching every Monday evening. It’s a great burger—and a good deal.

Parade your patriotism: Even if Round Top’s Fourth of July parade it weren’t the longest-continually running parade west of the Mississippi, it would top the list. It’s patriotic and well, it’s fun to watch and be in. Get there early for a prime location, or introduce yourself to someone with a prime location and visit.

Almost everyone has a things to do list. While grocery shopping and picking up the laundry are undeniably necessary, they’re not nearly as fun as exploring the Roundtopolis. While the Round Top Antiques Shows are larger than life, they’re just the beginning of the discoveries waiting to be made in the region.

Use our suggestions to get going on your own personal adventure. Check out our ideas for Brenham, Burton, Carmine,  Fayetteville, Giddings and La Grange.
