About Hico, Texas

Planning a trip to Hico should be on your bucket list. Hico is a small town in Central Texas that is home to about 1,300 folks. We have a rich rural history, with cotton and the railroad being central to our past, as well as a vibrant Western culture. Hico has a reputation for being a wonderful place to shop for antiques, but we also have a strong food scene, recreational activities, and abundant overnight accommodations. Come spend a weekend “in the country” and lose your worries as you walk along our beautifully-preserved historic streets. Here are some links that can help you plan your perfect weekend.
