Deep in Central Texas
La Grange is known to me, because I have family members living here. It is set in the rolling landscape of the Colorado River Valley. The town has a nice square and is the county seat of Fayette County. There are also some historic sites of interest here. The town once gained notoriety as the location of the "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas". Although the famed "Chicken Ranch" is gone, the story remains. This is about an hour's drive or so south from Austin and is far enough away from the threat of urbanization. If you happen to be passing through here, it might be worth a stop to at least check out the main square and Monument Hill. Expect to find friendly locals here.
