Settled by German immigrants in the 1840s, Fredericksburg blends the look and feel of Old World with pioneer Texas. On Main Street, colorful flowers spill from planters in front of restored buildings, and benches allow rest stops as visitors browse through art galleries, German bakeries and shops selling all kinds of quality items, including antiques, locally designed jewelry, Texas wines and furnishings, homemade preserves and other foods grown in the area, leather goods and more. Fredericksburg is close to wineries, the late President Lyndon B. Johnson’s homes and other attractions. In the last few years, its popularity has boomed among urbanites escaping for a weekend in the country at one of area’s charming B&Bs and guest houses. This chapter contains the most magical places to stay, the best restaurant discoveries, the fun activities and special moments that a couple will remember forever.
