Texas Historical Markers have been awarded to 35 historical buildings and sites in Hood County, so if you're one who likes to take in as much as you can, you'll probably need to take a tour or two. In 1999 alone, five Granbury Historic markers were awarded to historic properties.

Historic Tours of Granbury, a branch of the Granbury Convention and Visitors Bureau, provides guided group tours. To arrange a tour through the bureau call 1-800-950-2212. The bureau also provides tour books for those who want to explore Hood County's history on their own.

Another option is to book through Merry Heart Granbury Tours. This outfit offers tours for groups of 10 or more, but you must book 48 hours in advance. Some folks favor the Merry Heart Tours because they feature combination packages that include touring a Victorian home as well as the historical buildings that fall into Granbury's public domain.

The Granbury Carriage Company's narrated tours offer a twist. Tourists ride through Granbury's historic courthouse district in a white French Vis-a-Vis, drawn by a Percheron horse. The company also provides a bed and breakfast taxi service and one-hour special-request tours. The special-request tours are available Friday, Saturday, and Sunday only.

Elan River Cruises of Granbury don't offer tours per se, but they do provide guests a scenic look at Granbury's natural beauty. Their 27-foot luxuriant party boat can be reserved for anything from a dinner cruise to a murder mystery cruise. Some cruises launch at sunset or in the moonlight, and one cruise serves up a scrumptious breakfast brunch. There's even a "barefoot cruise" for those who want to take a dip along the way.
