The Texas Brazos Trail Region is an 18-county area of Central Texas. It is part of the 10-region Heritage Trails Program of the Texas Historical Commission.

Visitors to the region can explore state parks, visit a presidential library, sample some of Texas' best BBQ, or enjoy one of the many local festivals and events. The region is filled with historic towns, unique downtown shops, museums, beautifully preserved homes, and more.
