Weekend Getaway: Fredericksburg, Texas

Weekend Getaway: Fredericksburg, Texas

I have always adored the quaint and unique charm of small towns….tiny specialty shops boutiques, hole in the wall cafes and restaurants with exquisite, homemade delicacies, and hidden hot spots that only a local knows how to find. For years, I have been dying to visit the sweet Texas town of Fredericksburg, but never seemed to find the time, until my husband surprised me with a weekend trip for my birthday last year.

Filled with all of the charm that a small town has to offer, and topped off with amazing Bed Breakfast options and the best strip of wineries Texas has to offer, our trip to Fredericksburg was truly a blast! Here are a few highlights, and must stop spots for those of you who find yourself in that neck of the woods.

The Chuck Wagon Inn: Our amazingly charming and lovingly run Bed Breakfast! Run by the hugely hospitable humorous husband wife team, Sam Becky Higgins, I cannot recommend it enough. We were served homemade breakfast tacos and biscuits each morning and filled with stories to last the day long!

My husband and I are both huge Texas Country Music fans, so had to make a stop in Luckenbach. I’m not really sure how to describe it other than by saying it was like nothing I’ve ever seen….definitely worth a visit!

While we stopped at many wineries, our favorites included the beautiful Becker Vineyards and the eclectic new Four Point Winery…but don’t take my word for it. Each winery has a unique twist and highlights different aspects of the experience so you simply must decide for yourself.

While I don’t have a picture to show, it would be a crime not mentioning a lovely little spot known as Alamo Springs Restaurant. Good Nelly. They say that the burgers are the best around, but truly, in all my life, I have never had anything so yummy. If you go ANYWHERE in Fredericksburg at all…..you must make a burger stop here. You will thank me later!

There is so much more that I can share, but will leave you with pictures. I cannot wait to go back!
