As 2020 faded in the rearview mirror (hallelujah!), many of us thought of taking a little getaway (finally!) — someplace uncrowded and slow-paced, where we could recharge in nature, enjoy some good food, see a few sights.
For me, Brownwood came to mind.
I last visited almost 10 years ago, to write a story for this magazine. Revisiting my favorite places and seeing what had changed would be an added bonus to the much-needed respite.
The town remains open and welcomes visitors, but some things are a bit different than before. As with all things these days, this trip required a bit more planning — such as reserving a day pass at the state park and ordering takeout food online at mealtimes.
