The picturesque small town of Smithville proclaims itself to be the “Heart of the Megalopolis,” being conveniently situated between Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and Bryan/College Station. (Austin is just 40 miles to the northwest). Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is just a short drive away, as are the new Formula One race track and gorgeous Buescher and Bastrop State Parks. Smithville itself has much to offer, including a charming historic district, the annual Festival of Light celebration, and an annual five-day Jamboree.
