Peaches on the tree in Fredericksburg

Fredericksburg

This thriving Hill Country community melds Old World heritage with small-town charms and big-city perks. Throughout the year, throngs of festival-goers descend on events celebrating everything from the oohs and aahs of wildflower season to the oompahs of Oktoberfest.

The town makes a great home base for excursions to Enchanted Rock, the LBJ parks, and other Hill Country wonders.
