Welcome to the Burnet Texas Chamber of Commerce!

Nestled at the edge of the spectacular Texas Hill Country about 50 miles northwest of Austin, amidst the beautiful Highland Lakes, is the historic community of Burnet. Established first as a fort on the Texas frontier in the mid-1800's, Burnet has maintained its pioneer roots and rural charm while adapting to the modern age. We welcome you to one of the friendliest towns in central Texas.

Burnet's Historic town square offers visitors a unique shopping and dining experience. Gift, antique, and collectible shops surround the square. There are several cafes and full-service restaurants on or within easy walking distance of the square. Motels, inns, bed and breakfasts, lakeshore cabins and Burnet's proximity to so many sights make it the ideal hub for travels into our region. So no matter what your interests you will find something to please you in Burnet!
