The “best small town in Texas” – visit Fredericksburg. This quintessential German town sits just over an hour northwest of San Antonio. Famous for its food, wine, wildflowers, shopping and annual Oktoberfest celebration, Fredericksburg is ideal for a San Antonio and Texas Hill Country adventure. Browse up and down Main Street, the town’s historic district, and home to over 150 shops, art galleries, museums, restaurants, bakeries and Biergartens. History buffs are invited to stop by the Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park, the National Museum of the Pacific War, the Pioneer Museum and the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm. When hunger strikes, you’ll find traditional German dishes like Sauerbraten, Wiener Schnitzel and Reuben sandwiches with plenty of craft beers to pair. For those who prefer wine, the surrounding countryside boasts nearly 50 wineries complete with tours, tasting rooms and family-friendly fun. For the active visitor, consider hiking, rock climbing, birding, golfing, cycling and exploring Wildseed Farms, the largest working wildflower farm in the United States.
