Plan your next weekend away to the heart of Texas Hill Country.
Tucked into the beautiful Texas Hill Country, just an hour and a half west of Austin, is the friendly town of Fredericksburg. Though small in size, this gem has been drawing people in with its Texas-size hospitality for years. Winter is the perfect time to plan a spring getaway to Fredericksburg for a taste of German heritage, award-winning wines, and more than 80 restaurants that feature everything from regional Hill Country cuisine to Bavarian dining.
In addition to a rich German-American history and decadent dining, visitors will fall for Fredericksburg’s delightful shopping, more than 40 vineyards, and countless outdoor activities. A quick drive from both San Antonio and Austin, the area is a hot spot for short getaways, girls’ weekends, and family trips. Come see the beauty of the Texas Hill Country and kick back, relax, and stay for a while.
