Food. Wine. Friends. And, fun. Find it all in Fredericksburg. This quintessential German town of only 11,000 residents sits just over an hour northwest of both San Antonio and San Marcos.

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. When the evening rolls in, catch live music in nearby Luckenbach Texas. Then, settle down for the evening in a cozy hotel or one of the town’s charming bed and breakfasts and guesthouses – the small town offers nearly 1,500 guesthouses and short-term rentals.
