Carrizo Springs, Texas

Carrizo Springs is the Dimmit County seat, located in southwestern Texas. The famous Camino Real, or Royal Road, that once connected Mexico with Spanish-controlled towns in Texas, passes near Carrizo Springs. The town name is derived from the abundant Carrizo Cane that once proliferated around freely flowing springs.

The county is home to more Texas Rangers' graves than any other place in the state, and 17 known Rangers are buried in the city's Mt. Hope Cemetery.

Deer hunters prize the Carrizo Springs area, which is noted for growing more trophy bucks per square mile than any other region in the state. Fishing is available on the nearby Espantosa Lake and Nueces River. Carrizo Spring Golf Course is a public championship nine-hole course, open daily. Annual events include Fiesta Nopalitos in the spring and Brush Country Days in the autumn.
