A to Z - Eye on Texas: U

 Eye on Texas seeks Utopia....Texas - it's a census designated town with approximately 200 people. It was originally called Waresville. Then the citizens found that the name Montana was taken, so they chose Utopia. Tucked in the Hill Country west of San Antonio,  it basks in the Sabinal river and scenic views.

 Enjoy Lost Maples nature area. Cypress and Pecan trees abound. Bed and Breakfasts offer a romantic getaway.
"Seven Days in Utopia" was filmed here and you can play a round of golf at the Utopia Golf Course.

Utopia is Texas Hill Country Paradise

And let's hear from the Countess - "My dear, we country dwellers must beware of being provincial. Try and let your time in London rub off on you a little more. "


  1. That's like the ultimate name for a town.

  2. What a great name. In Britain, if we chose our own names, we'd have "It's all right", "It's a dump" etc... We're a little self-deprecating over here :-)

    1. but there are probably snakes - always a drawback in Texas! bring your snowboots

  4. Hi Joanne - yes I like Annalisa's comment ... now I'm worried about my U and V posts as she's Cornish!

    Utopia does look a great place ... love the weir and its river, as too the craggy scenery .. cheers Hilary

  5. Oh, the fun you could have with this name. All the townsfolk could claim they live in a utopian society, for starters.

  6. It looks like a scenic place. Interesting name too.

  7. Utopia with SNAKES...nope, not in my 'Good Book'...I don't care if it is in Texas. I guess the Utopian's can really claim to live in 'God's Country'. Actually, them's fightn' words from the folks in Eden, Texas.

  8. I'd be surprised if "Seven Days in Utopia" was filmed anywhere else ;)

  9. Ha! Montana, Utopia...tomato, tomatoe.
    I guess Seven Days in Montana wouldn't have made such a good movie title.

  10. Aside from the snakes, Utopia looks the ultimate golfers paradise!
