Springtime in Fredericksburg, Texas
FREDERICKSBURG: ONE OF MY FAVORITE
TEXAS HILL COUNTRY TOWNS
If not my Favorite Town in the Lone Star State
- Fredericksburg is at its best in the springtime, when the wildflowers are in bloom.
- The area is also becoming well know for its wineries and bus tours.
- Do not miss the chance to visit Enchanted Rock and drive the Willow City Loop.
I just wanted to take this little buckaroo home!
If you said I had a special place in my heart for Fredericksburg, you would be right. This is by far one of my favorite towns in the state. I’ve been here so many times over the past thirty years, I could almost be a resident, yet I live five hours away.
Even our bluebonnets salute the red, white, and blue.

With spring in the air and the wildflowers in bloom, I once more felt the need to travel deep into the heart of Texas. So we hitched the Casita to the Jeep, and headed off to the Fredericksburg KOA (a place I have stayed many times before).
Once settled in our campsite, with camera in hand, we headed off to some of our favorite locations (Fredericksburg Main Street, Enchanted Rock State Park, Luckenbach, Pedernales Falls State Park, Wildflower Farm, just to name a few) to take these pictures to share with you, and hopefully giving you a sense of the rugged beauty of the Texas Hill Country.
I couldn’t decide if this bluebonnet
was lonely or proud…

I never miss a visit to Fredericksburg without climbing
to the summit or walking around Enchanted Rock.

This is our location on Google Maps
With the sun setting low behind us, and the full moon rising in the east,
I was able to capture this unique photo of the Padilly’s during sunset at the Summit.
While today’s Luckenbach may not be the same one Waylon and Willie sang about, I always love hanging out here to do a little people watching.
Motorcycles are a common sight in Luckenbach, Texas where “Everybody is Somebody”
“You know you’re a Texan
when you measure distance by minutes & hours, not miles.”
