Luling's Main Street
Luling's Main Street, a project of The City of Luling, features the restaurants, shops, services, historical sites, river and green-belt areas throughout town which provide a wide variety of food, antiques and collectibles, gifts, jewelry, clothing, artists’ wares, unusual sights, relaxing vistas, and plenty of intriguing things to do.
The year-round Farmers Market and produce stands offer a large variety of fresh seasonal produce, from our world famous watermelons in summer to one of the largest selections of pumpkins in the state each fall.
Central Texas Oil Patch Museum
Rich in history, Luling is home to the Central Texas Oil Patch Museum, located in the historic Walker Brothers building downtown. The museum pays tribute to Luling’s rich cultural heritage and the important role that oil played in the development of the area. Many oil drilling artifacts, tools, work uniforms, hats, writings and photos are available for a leisurely, self-guided tour. Spend a few minutes or hours going back to the heyday of "Black Gold" in central Texas.
The Museum is open from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm weekdays and 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday.
Located on the banks of the San Marcos River is the historic Zedler Mill, currently under renovation by the city of Luling. It is the take out point for Texas’ first inland paddling trail and is fast becoming one of Texas’ “best kept secrets” for canoers and kayakers.
Also, an afternoon can be spent on our challenging 9-hole golf course that meanders along the San Marcos River downstream from Zedler's Mill.
Pump Jack Tour
There are almost two hundred oil well pump jacks within the city limits of Luling. The Chamber of Commerce commissioned a local artist to create moveable art to decorate many of the wells along the highways. A map of the Pump Jack Tour is available at the Chamber.
