Day Trip to Bellville 🏰 (FULL EPISODE) S10 E1

Published

on

SUMMARY: Belleville, Texas, situated off the beaten path, an hour west of Houston, is a community of rural Texans driven by agriculture and grit. The rich soil in the area has sustained generations of family farms. Belleville is located in the region where Texas began, containing some of the oldest towns and settlements. The lush countryside houses colorful characters, striving communities and an enduring reverence for the Lone Star State’s storied past. Visitors to this offbeat town can have a unique and memorable experience with historic museums, artisan craftsmen, small businesses, and a medieval-themed castle.

This town between Houston and Austin may seem small and unexceptional, but it holds some of our oldest stories. This is the land where Texas began! And more than just that, it’s a place filled with passionate folks who have BIG talents.

While you’re in town, be sure you stop by this giant bust statue to say “Howdy” to the Father of Texas!

To learn the story of how Texas began, you’ll have to go a little ways outside of town to San Felipe, where Austin established his “Old 300” colony. If you’re wondering why you’ve never heard of this very important town, it’s because the settlers were forced to abandon the town, burning it to the ground to escape Santa Ana’s pursuits. This museum does an incredible job of telling this story.

The same man who owns Newman’s Bakery has created this dream kingdom where you can feel like royalty for an afternoon. He opens up his towering home for tours, and it’s a great place to bring out your inner kid. Ring the tower bells, have a sword fight or fling cannon balls from a giant trebuchet (aka catapult) into the lake!

This blacksmith shop is an incredible testament to owner Cowboy’s passion for crafting knives — and playing with fire! Each knife lining the shelves of his shop has been hand-crafted over a flame and the detailed designs were carved in by hand.

However you slice it, this family-owned market serves up some GOOD meat and it’s a carnivore’s paradise. In addition to 28 varieties of hand-stuffed, house-made sausages, they also have a huge selection of jerkies, briskets, bacon and more. Stop in at the cafe for a baked potato piled high with handmade pecan-smoked Chipotle Sausage, and after lunch, head to the meat counter to purchase even more meat.

Since you’re in the land where Texas began, it’s only fitting that you have Texas’s favorite treat as a snack. Aside from ruling an epic kingdom, Newman also bakes a mean kolache.

The Hills is the most old-fashioned joint in town, and since 1952, it’s been the place to park your ride and grab a classic burger and shake. Not much has changed since the sock-hop days, and in this black-and-white diner that’s a great thing! Don’t skip out on the onion rings — they’re enormous!

Texas Longhorns vs. Michigan Wolverines voted the Best Non-Conference Game of 2024

Published

www.youtube.com – Locked On Longhorns – 2024-07-12 08:30:06

For the second straight season, the Texas Longhorns will travel on the road to face off against a blue blood program, in what feels like a statement game for the Longhorns. In 2023, Texas was facing an Alabama team at the end of a dynasty led by Nick Saban. Now they face off against a Michigan team coming off a national championship and 3 consecutive conference championships. A win could propel the Longhorns, while a loss could be the step back no one anticipated #HookEm

#1 Wide Receiver in the Country, Dakorien Moore chooses the Oregon Ducks over the Texas Longhorns

Published

on

www.youtube.com – Locked On Longhorns – 2024-07-05 11:35:28

Dakorien Moore is one of the best prospects in the state of Texas, the #1 wide receiver in the country, and a player that the University of Texas could not afford to miss on. Instead, that is exactly what happened. In 2023, Dakorien committed to LSU, but many Texas fans thought this was temporary. Yesterday, he said no to Texas for the second time, and this time it feels final. Where does Texas go from here? #HookEm
