Grab your dancing shoes and head on over to Gruene Hall, which was featured on the list of Must-See Central Texas Dance Halls by! Located only about 20 minutes away from Vintage Oaks, you can round up your friends and family and head to one of the most historic dance halls in Texas.

Gruene Hall is the oldest actively running dance hall in Texas. Build in 1876 by Henry D. Gruene, this landmark has been an icon for Texas music and dancing, having hosted acts such as George Strait, Willie Nelson, and many more.
