The Best of Fredericksburg, Texas


Ya'll, the Texas Hill Country is booming, especially Fredericksburg! I find myself brushing off my cowgirl boots (not required but highly recommended) for a weekend away here at least 4 times a year! This quaint German-inspired town is known for its amazing wineries, and if you aren't into wine there are so many fun things to do. This post outlines options for a perfect weekend away. Do note, some places are just outside of Fredericksburg city limits in the towns of Hye and Stonewall.

Things to Do

  • Albert Dance Hall: Hands down one of my absolute favorite things to do in Fredericksburg. This place has my heart. Bring your fold-out chair, water, snacks, and go listen to live music! They have an incredible selection of drinks as well and a food truck. You must go!

  • Luckenbach: A must see at least once on a trip to the Hill Country. Be sure to check out the calendar on the website to see who will be playing music.

  • Hiking: Enchanted Rock, Cross Mountain Park

  • Windmill Meadow Farm: A local flower farm you can book an appointment and tour to pick and make your own bouquet with the owners. They are so welcoming and very informative!

  • National Museum of the Pacific War: This is a must for history buffs!

  • Garrison Brothers Distillery: For whiskey lovers or a break from wine, your want to check out this fun spot!

  • Shopping: You could spend all day wandering in and out of the many boutiques on Main Street. Also, you can have a glass of wine and walk down Main too! I love stopping by Das Peach Haus and Wild Seed Farms.


Wineries

One of the best parts of visiting Fredericksburg is exploring the beautiful wineries! Pick 2-3 wineries to explore in a day and consider sharing tastings to conserve taste buds. You can skip tastings and choose to buy a glass or bottle instead and enjoy the vineyard. Some wineries have snacks but always have some packed and don't forget lots of water!


A Few More Tips

  • Mondays and Tuesdays are slower days in Fredericksburg. Check to make sure places in your itinerary are open.

  • Some wineries require appointments for tastings so be sure to check!

  • Book early! This place is poppin' and great accommodation options go quickly.

  • Christmas time, the Harvest Season in August (when you can pick grapes at many of the vineyards), and wildflower season (typically April) are magical times to visit Fredericksburg!

Don't wait to book a trip to Fredericksburg and enjoy all this region has to offer.
