With more than 50 wineries and tasting rooms, tons of restaurants and cozy guesthouses and B&Bs, it’s no surprise that Fredericksburg has been labeled one of “America’s Most Romantic Small Towns” by CNN Travel and was named one of the "13 Most Romantic Small Towns" by Reader's Digest.
So how can you wow the one you love in one of America’s most romantic small towns?
Secure romantic lodging
Book a stay in one of Gastehaus Schmidt's guesthouses or B&Bs, as mentioned by CNN, or at any of the nearly 1,500 vacation rentals, B&Bs, guesthouses and inns, or even hotels and motels here in Fredericksburg. Filter by amenities, location, type of home and more.
Taste Texas' Best
Did you know Texas Wine Country was voted fifth Best Wine Region by USA Today 10Best? Book a wine tour with one of our local wine tour companies and spend time exploring Texas Hill Country wineries with the one you love. Take a hint from CNN and plan a stop at Becker Vineyards - it even makes for a great proposal spot!
Take in the beauty
Stop at Wildseed Farms on your way back into town and stroll hand-in-hand among the beautiful fields of wildflowers. Not wildflower season? Grab seeds to plant at your home next spring.
Or take a sunset hike up to Enchanted Rock or Cross Mountain to take in the beautiful Texas Hill Country views. Reminder: Reservations are required to visit Enchanted Rock and can be made up to 30 days in advance.
Visit one of Fredericksburg's local chocolatiers, Fredericksburg Fudge, Chocolat or Chocolates El Rey, for a sweet treat. A box of special liquor-filled or truffle chocolates is sure to put a smile on your sweetheart's face. Chocolate not your thing? Stop by Clear River Ice Cream and Bakery and try one, or all 47 different flavors of ice cream.
Make dinner reservations at any of Fredericksburg's local establishments to wrap up your evening. And many restaurants serve Texas Wine Country vino that pairs perfectly.
