Giddings and Lee County - small town hospitality & easy access to the "city slicker" destinations in the region. Now, back in my rodeo days, I used to get around this area quite a bit, but these days it's a whole lot easier to just "surf" this here World Wide Web to learn more about the county. This way I can learn about pretty spots like Lake Somerville and events like the Round Top Antiques Fair.
