One of our favorite things to do is hop in the car and take a drive somewhere for a quick weekend getaway. It's so fun to explore new places and taking a day trip is the perfect way to do that. Fredericksburg, Texas is a beautiful town to visit any season and one of our go-to places for a mini Saturday road trip. Below, we're sharing our weekend guide to Fredericksburg, Texas; where to eat, shop and stay!
WHERE TO SHOP
Carol Hicks Bolton Antiquities
301 South Lincoln Street, Fredericksburg, TX
One of our dear friends, and antique guru, Carol, and Tim of Carol Hicks Bolton Antiquities own a string of stores just off of Main Street. Here you'll find Carol Hicks Bolton Antiquities, Room No. 5 and Gus Antiques & Wonders. Each has a different feeling once you walk in, but each is filled with gorgeous vintage finds, delicate textiles and antique furniture all from Carol and Tim's travels.
461 Split Rail Crossing, Fredericksburg, TX
It's hard to miss the intricate shop front of Magnolia Pearl that almost creates an entrance to another world, to another time or place. The architecture of the shop is enough to keep you wandering for hours, but inside you'll also find incredibly unique clothing and accessories made with vintage materials, or are vintage inspired. Since Magnolia Pearl is a couple miles outside of the town, it's a great stop on your way in - or out!
211 W Main St, Fredericksburg, TX
Another one of our favorite antique shops to stop by is Farmhaus Antiques. This shop is perfect for those of you looking to decorate your modern farmhouse and is filled with French antiques and unique finds. We love the fresh, white-washed decor from Farmhaus Antiques and their wide array of offerings!
WHERE TO EAT
Woerner Warehouse Cafe + Catering
305 S Lincoln St, Fredericksburg, TX
Woerner Warehouse Cafe + Catering is located in the iconic Woerner Feed Store, where you'll also find antique pieces from Carol Hicks Bolton's store, Gus Antiques & Wonders. Peruse the warehouse before sitting down in the cafe for one of their delicious pizzas, sandwiches or yummy soup of the day.
230 E Main St, Fredericksburg, TX
Tucked beneath Vaudeville's storefront on Main Street, the Vaudeville Bistro serves fresh dishes using local ingredients. You could describe their menu as new American comfort food, and the delicious waft of smells that float up through the store is enough to get your mouth watering for more.
10661 US-87, Fredericksburg, TX
The Hilltop Cafe eatery is set in a 1930's gas station and serves up delicious entrees with live music! Using fresh ingredients from local farmers and their own herbs that are grown in-house, this cafe provides a light and casual dining experience without skimping on yummy, fresh food!
WHERE TO STAY
201 N Llano St, Fredericksburg, TX
Time slows down as you drive into peaceful grounds of Sugarberry Inn. This bed and breakfast has plenty of cottage options to offer guests, with gracious amenities such as a cellar wine bar, a patio centered by a limestone fireplace and beautiful landscapes all connected by a walking footpath.
608 E Creek St, Fredericksburg, TX 78624
The Hoffman Haus is a collection of cottages and farmhouses located just a block from Main Street and a 10-minute walk from the downtown restaurants and shops. This bed and breakfast offers a seasonal breakfast menu that is delivered each morning to your room via picnic basket in addition to a secluded day-spa for guests.
OUR FAVORITE WINERIES
Last but certainly not least, we wanted to share some our favorite wineries with you all. Although there are multiple tasting rooms scattered throughout Main Street, we suggest you spend a day driving through the wine country and enjoying the beautiful sunshine, and delicious wine. Along the way, we suggest Becker Vineyards, Grape Creek Vineyards, and Baron's Creek Vineyards.
A weekend trip to somewhere new is always a good idea! We hope this helps inspire you to getin your car and go explore - you never know what fun and interesting town you might come across.
