Two Travelers’ Views of Fredericksburg, Texas

Fredericksburg TXIf you’ve never heard of Fredericksburg, Texas, don’t apologize. Until very recently, neither had Steve Cook or Annie Tobey. But since they both had the opportunity to go, they’ll tell you about it in their own words: He Said, She Said.


Yes Virginia, there is another Fredericksburg. This one’s in Texas. And it’s named for Prince Frederick of Prussia, not the Prince of Wales (as in the case of “our” Fredericksburg). 

Picture this: You’re riding through the Hill Country, about 70 miles northwest of San Antonio. Your drive has been through peach and pecan orchards, past vineyards and lavender farms. It’s a beautiful rural, scenic drive, and then, suddenly, you come upon this quaint little city. Turn on to Main Street (it’s been dubbed the widest street in Texas – and you know that everything in Texas is BIG, Annie interjects) and you’ve arrived at what they call the “Magic Mile”: art galleries, boutiques, and jewelry and fashion stores, plus cozy little restaurants, coffee shops, and wine bars – and a brewpub, too. In what you might mistake for a sleepy little Texas town, you’ll discover that they don’t roll the sidewalks up when the sun goes down. Late into the night, the sounds of music waft through town as various eateries offer live entertainment out on the patio. Read this article at RichmondNavigator.com.
