Llano is nationally known as the “Deer Capital of Texas.” It is home to Enchanted Rock, a huge, pink granite dome that rises 425 feet above ground in a state natural area of the same name. Residents and visitors enjoy golfing at the Llano River Golf Course & RV Resort. Other activities include fishing, camping, kayaking and canoeing on the Llano river and surrounding Highland Lakes. Llano is the official site of the annual Texas Gold Panning Championships where rockhounds pan for “Lanite” or gold in the Llano River. Each month, the Llano Country Opry plays at the historic LanTex Theater.
