Texas Monthly’s Montrose Itinerary

By | October 16, 2012

This month, Texas Monthly contributor, Jordan Breal hunkered down in Montrose for a 3 days of eating, drinking, and shopping.

Her first day is one for the Montrose record books: from hip shops like Mortar  and Space  to antiquing at B.J. Oldies and Old Blue House Antiques  – she even worked in local hangout Agora  and, of course, award-winning fare at Underbelly and a brew at Hay Merchant.

But Beal doesn’t stop there. She packs in more shopping, museum visits, food truck finds, and shopping in her whirlwind 3-day Montrose exursion.

My favorite parts of her Montrose story is the neighborliness she encountered and how she became a Montrosean within just 48 hours of arrival.

And, of course, not that we need be reminded, but here are the stats:

Population: 29,000
Size: 4.4 square miles
Number of restaurants and bars: 230 (at least)

Check out the full article here for Beal’s tell-all Montrose adventure and killer itinerary. Where would you add for her second trip?

Let us know next time you come in town, Jordan! We’d love to grab a bite with you.
