I recently went to Fredericksburg and had a blast. I was so excited to go and I spent hours researching where to go (and areas to go to take a brake from the July heat) and I wanted to share how to get the most out of your trip to Fredericksburg.
We started our first day in Downtown Fredericksburg and I found the BEST German bakery. Grab kolaches from the Old German Bakery. I got a sausage and cheese kolache which was A-mazing and a blueberry kolache with the freshest blueberrie I have ever tasted. I ate it so fast there was no time for pictures.
Take it to go so you can walk to the park which has a cute watermill, a butterfly garden, and a really inspiring Native American statue. Afterwards we walked around the stores which was a lot more fun then we expected even though we didn’t buy anything. There were so many cute boutiques, kitchy Texas shops, jewelry stores, and even a year long Christmas shop!
I have a terrible sweet tooth and can’t turn down ice and as soon as we walked past ClearRiver I knew we had to go in. They have so many different flavors such as lavender, and chocolate chocolate, and of course peach. I ended up going with a Mexican Chocolate Espresso shake and I was in ice cream heaven. From there we went to look at more shops.
Afterwards we spent time visiting some of the wineries (as mentioned above) and went to WildSeed Farms which was filled with… well… field of wildflowers! It really was a gorgeous site.
The next day was filled with a lot more adventure. We started off our trip with a stop by Marberger farms where they let you pick certain fruits during the season. Unfortunately, this winter was so warm that most farms only had a 5% yield (crazy!) and so we weren’t able to pick peaches, but we got to pick blackberries! They let you eat as many as you want while you are picking at no extra cost so my breakfast consisted of blackberries!
From there we went to Das Peach Haus. A cute shop filled with local yummies and peach flavored everything! They also had this gorgeous lake in the back where we relaxed in the shade to escape the Texas heat!
We ate at this amazing restaurant, Pasta Bella. I don’t know what it is about Fredericksburg, but all their food is so good and at a reasonable price!
We finished off our weekend with a trek up Enchanted Rock. Rock is definitely an understatement! We went once it started getting dark so it wasn’t so hot. The park says it closes between 4-6, but that’s just the office so you’re still able to go and hike. It can get packed so make sure to check their FB page, but in the early morning or evening you shouldn’t have a problem getting in. The hike up is a lot of fun, but the view of the countryside when you get to the top is stunning!
