Welcome to the City of Blanco! Our city is defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear. We take pride in maintaining a wholesome lifestyle, rich in cultural history, along with a deep commitment to the preservation of our environment and a progressive approach to local business. Blanco is located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on US Highway 281, 45 minutes southwest of Austin and 45 minutes north of San Antonio.
On April 26, 2022, the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) officially approved the City of Blanco as an International Dark Sky Community (IDSC).
