Brenham is in the heart of bluebonnet country on the Texas Bluebonnet Wine Trail. The beautiful countryside is the perfect backdrop for home-style dining at Brenham's restaurants specializing in American classics. Salad bars, sandwich shops, steakhouses and barbeque joints line the streets for hungry patrons to enjoy. If you are craving something a little less Texan, try country-French, or in historic downtown Brenham, visit a tapas fusion restaurant. Four wineries are located nearby and offer both tours and tastings. Home of Blue Bell Ice Cream, Brenham has several ice cream shops serving the hometown favorite and you can even tour the Blue Bell creamery and maybe have a sample or two.
