For a second-year in a row, Fredericksburg was recently named “Best Small Town in Texas” by Southern Living.

The April 2019 “South’s Best” feature highlighted Fredericksburg’s “blend of Texas-German culture, historic storefronts, locally owned shops and restaurants, and prime location among the wineries of the Texas Hill Country.”

Southern Living also noted that Fredericksburg “a shoo-in for any list of great small towns,” which make it one of the top places in the nation to learn German heritage and culture.

With more than 400 events and festivals throughout the year that showcase Fredericksburg’s spring wildflowers, summer peaches, fall festivals and winter holiday traditions, it is always a good time to visit this gem.
