A new year beckons a new adventure. January 2024 in Llano County begins with a chilly plunge in the Llano River. While winter is not the preferred time for a dip, it is the perfect time for outdoor activity. Fishing and paddling on the Llano River are great year-round activities. Get your toes tapping at the Llano Country Opry or enjoy a fun benefit for a local animal shelter.
