I’ve driven through the Texas Hill Country about 20 times now, but had never had the chance to stop and enjoy the charming city of Fredericksburg. Until this past Saturday!
Fredericksburg is a small city off of I-10, that was founded in 1846 by migrant germans protected under the “Society for the Protection of German Immigrants in Texas”. It is also known as the Peach Capital of Texas and Noblemen’s Society.
Fredericksburg is filled with cute local shops, art galleries, german restaurants, museums and wineries. Oh! and Dogologie, “a premier store for your canine family members”, LITERALLLY! They carry dog socks, different breed collectives, dog strollers and more, they will make your dog feel like a street dog.
Early Saturday, Dave, Ryan and I headed out to Fredericksburg. We wandered through Main St and discovered several high-end shops, and art galleries (with paintings up to, 75K, YIKES!) Most of the shops on Main St, offer a variety of locally made handmade goods, and vintage artifacts, a dream!
We had lunch at The Auslander Restaurant, that offers German cuisine and the largest beer selections in the Hill Country.

On the way back to Austin, we made a quick stop at Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park. This park protects the birthplace, home, ranch and final resting place of LBJ, the 36th President of the United States. Who we learned to be a real badass president who was responsible for designing the “Great Society” legislation that included laws that upheld civil rights, environmental protection, aid to education, urban and rural development and his “War on Poverty”.

Our last stop was at the Bariloche Farm, an all natural farm with all homemade ice cream, smoothies, jams, and of course peach cobbler! I highly recommend this place is it everything you picture the Hill Country to be.
