Outdoors

It’s no wonder people flock to the Texas Hill Country. The rolling hills, colorful wildflowers and winding country roads are enough to make anyone want to commune with nature. If the outdoors is your cup of tea, you’ll find it hard to fit all this is in one trip. For the binocular-toting crowd, the Fredericksburg area has everything from bats (and millions of them) to 300 species of birds. For the gotta-get-up-and-move types, we’re also popular for hiking or rock climbing Enchanted Rock, and for bicycling and horseback riding.
