Fredericksburg is the Texas Hill Country spot for a romantic getaway. Here are a few helpful tips for those of you planning a romantic escape. Some are our spin on the traditional roses and candy, and some are just plain romantic fun and memories in Fredericksburg.
First, for any escape, you will need some special lodging and what is more special than your own private guesthouse in town or on a ranch. This is great for that private and relaxing escape. Check the B&B page and use the search function to find the perfect spot to steal away with your love. Hint – some of the B&Bs offer special romance packages giving you more time to spend together.
Once you have found the perfect place to stay, pick up some special touches for your time here. Some traditional gifts are flowers and chocolate, but in Fredericksburg, we can put a special spin on the old stand-by; try a fresh cut bouquet of wildflowers from Wildseed Farms and special liquor-praline chocolates from Chocolat. We’ve got lots of other confectioners here too, so take your sweetie out for some sweets.
Romantic meals are always special and with over 70 restaurants in Fredericksburg, you will definitely find a great place to have that special dinner for two. We have numerous fine-dining selections and lots of fun casual places too; many with live music. Just be sure to make a reservation at some of our more popular restaurants. But why not make your escape even more memorable and have one of caterers prepare a special candlelit dinner for two and deliver to your lodging.
Picking a favorite wine together can be a great memory for your romantic getaway, but who wants to be the DD while the other gets to sample all afternoon. We have a simple solution for that! Take a wine tour and let the expert driver tour you around to the many wineries. Great times and great memories are sure to follow.
If you are thinking of adding a dash of fun to your time, check out one of our many live entertainment options. Be really laid back at Luckenbach, or get some fun food and tunes at Auslander or Hondos. And of course, the fabulously talented folks at Rockbox Theater will provide you with great tunes of the Golden Age of Rock.
Here’s a neat idea to create memories of your time here that will last as long as your love; get some custom made jewelry while you are here or maybe even a custom pair of his & hers boots? Check out places like Champe Jennings Jewelry for custom pieces or stop by Easterling Custom Boots to get custom fitted. We are in Texas and nothing says “love” like your own matching boots.
Here are a few other tidbits for planning romantic fun:
Sunset at Enchanted Rock with a bottle of wine.
A carriage ride through downtown or in an historic neighborhood.
Watch the bats emerge from the Old Tunnel State Park (OK – we admit that is kind of Addams Family…)

Boot-scoot the night away in the Luckenbach Dancehall.
