Local Tourism: Home of Hope Floats

My college roommates and I loved the movie Hope Floats, and watched it frequently. One if these Pepperdine pals, Kim, recently came for a visit from California so we headed to Smithville where the movie was filmed. Smithville is a short 40-minute drive from Austin, but it feels worlds away with its quiet, small-town charm.
Friendly locals pointed us in the direction of the lovely old home featured in the film, and the school where Sandra Bullock’s daughter braved bullies.
If you’re looking for a fun day trip from Austin, I highly recommend Smithville!
