Luling is located just 40 miles south of Austin, and 50 miles east of San Antonio. The great outdoors is close at hand with many rivers, lakes, campgrounds, and natural caverns dotting the area. A friendly, quiet Central Texas community, Luling is renowned for its barbecue, rich oil history, decorated pump jacks, fresh produce and plants, abundant watermelons (don't miss the annual Watermelon Thump!), and Texas' first inland canoe paddling trail on the San Marcos River. The expansive San Marcos Outlet Malls are 10 minutes away, and the pleasures of the San Antonio River Walk and the State Capitol in Austin are both just an hour away. Luling is an easy commute from either city, with all the friendly advantages of a small-town Texas community. For more information, visit http://www.lulingcc.org.
