One of the coolest towns in the Texas Hill Country, Fredericksburg has a thriving downtown strip for shopping, wine tasting, bars and live music. There are several events here every year including the Wine Festival and Crayfish Festival. This is truly one of the gems for tourism in the Hill Country. It’s a little over an hour drive from Austin. This is more of an antiques and wine tasting destination than an outdoors lake community.
