Characterized by open grassland, juniper-clad hills, and sandy areas, Hood County is highlighted by Lake Granbury on the Brazos River. Offering year-round recreational opportunities to residents and visitors, the lake has spurred development of residential communities. Western history abounds in this historic region, where Granbury’s Victorian town square offers quaint shops, galleries, antique treasures, cafes, fine dining, and theater. Built in 1886, the fabled Granbury Opera House was meticulously restored and reopened in 1975 to serve as a performing arts center for musicals, plays, and melodramas. Granbury Live offers family programming in a revitalized 1940s art deco movie theater, while the Dora Lee Langdon Cultural & Education Center specializes in fine art and musical concerts. Colorful annual celebrations and festivals range from the Chili Cook-Off and Old Fashioned 4th of July to the Country Christmas Candle Light Tour.
Recreational amenities are crowned by sparkling Lake Granbury, the star attraction for visitors to Hood County. More than 33 miles of scenic shoreline encourage boating, fishing, water skiing, canoeing, and swimming. Four parks provide boat ramps, public swimming areas, camp sites, and picnic facilities. Granbury City Beach adds another boat ramp, public swimming area, and picnic opportunities. Recent decades have seen the development of beautiful new residential villages, where beautiful homes on acre lots are surrounded by parkland with marinas and picnic areas. Country club communities provide a resort atmosphere with swimming pools, golf courses, marinas, club houses, fitness centers, and tennis courts. With its historic charm, modern services, and fine array of affordable housing, Hood County will be welcoming new residents for decades to come.
