MUSEUMS KEEP IT INTERESTING
If you feel a bit stuffed from Culinaria Week, take a break and stroll the McNay Museum, where docents offer free public tours on first and third Sundays at 3 pm. Another idea: On the second Saturday of every month, the Land Heritage Institute (in conjunction with the Witte Museum), is open 8:30 am to 4 pm for hiking, horseback riding, biking and exploring 1,200 acres along the Medina River and over 18 miles of nature trails. The Institute is located at 1349 Neal Road, between Applewhite and Pleasanton Roads on the south bank of the Medina River, south of the Toyota Truck plant. Get out there and enjoy the Texas summer weather!
