Located in the heart of Texas Hill Country, Fredericksburg is one of the most romantic places in Texas. Originally founded 175 years ago by German immigrants, Fredericksburg is known for its old world architecture and historic “Sunday Houses,” the charming cottages built by farmers so they could spend the night when they came to town for supplies and church services. Downtown Fredericksburg is lined with boutiques, art galleries, and restaurants, but for the best views, check out the breathtaking scenery at countryside vineyards like Augusta Vin. Country music fans won’t want to miss Luckenbach, the ghost town-turned-music venue immortalized in a song by Waylon Jennings. Base your stay at The True Heart Hotel where you can sleep in your very own Sunday House and leave your car behind as you walk to all the attractions downtown.
