“Brenham is known for Blue Bell ice cream. If you are here on a weekday, look online to see if you can get a ticket for a tour of the factory. The tour ends with a cup of ice cream! Weekends, you may be able to shop in the factory gift shop.”

“I love the old wood floors. It's really an old Honky Tonk, where lunch and dinner are served along with beer and other spirits. They have live music (usually Country/Western) most Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The Beef Fajita Quesadillas are very good. Be sure to get the green sauce to go with them. You'll find lots of families there and dancing too. ”
