How To See Them

Wildflower season in the Hill Country, around Fredericksburg, is somewhat variable. Redbuds, Flowering Quince, Mountain Laurel, Bluebonnets, Indian Paintbrush and phlox begin in early March. Bluebonnets are usually at their peak around the middle of April, but can begin much earlier. We recommend the following areas for viewing wildflowers. See these 4 scenic drives that will "take your breath away". Below are four of my very favorite Scenic Drives around Fredericksburg, Texas! They are all BEAUTIFUL! Enjoy!

1. Take 965 (Milam Street) out of Fredericksburg, just past Enchanted Rock. 965 connects with 16. Take a left to Llano. Just before 71 turn left on 2323 and follow it back to 87. Take a left back to Fredericksburg.
2. Take 87 from Fredericksburg to Mason swing around the courthouse square and return to Fredericksburg! This is a beautiful drive... some of the BEST wildflowers anywhere!
3. Take 87 from Fredericksburg toward Mason, turn right on 152. In Castell veer right and follow 152 along the river back to !6. Turn right back to Fredericksburg.
4. Take 87 to 648 (Hilltop Cafe is on the corner), turn left and continue into Doss, Texas. In Doss take a right on to 783 and continue to 87 take a right back to Fredericksburg. Fredericksburg, Texas, in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, is the place to spend a fabulous Spring Time Getaway or Best Friend Weekend.

Old Tunnel State Park

Old Tunnel State Park and the Alamo Springs Cafe - From May through October, the abandoned railroad tunnel at Old Tunnel State Park is home to more than 3 million Mexican free-tailed bats (Tadarida brasilienses mexicana) and 3,000 cave myotis (Myotis velifer) bats. During this time visitors can watch the amazing sight as the bats emerge nightly from the tunnel in a huge fluttering upward spiral just as the sun begins to set. The park offers nightly educational programs Thursday through Sunday that provide guests with a better understanding of the life, history and ecology of the bats.

Monday through Wednesday evenings, May through October, the trail and lower viewing area are not open to the public. On Thursday through Sunday evenings, the trail is open to those visitors who pay admission to view the bats at the lower viewing area. The Old Tunnel Trail is primitive and steep in some places.

Hill Country Terroir

Let's do a little Texas two-step around the meaning of TERROIR. Traditionally terroir referred to the physical elements of place... soil, weather, climate, and how these elements combined from place to place to create different, recognizable characteristics in the wine produced in each locale. But I think there's a lot more to the story! So, here's our expanded definition. Hill Country Terroir is Territory + Texas ZEST! EVERYTHING that makes a PLACE, or vineyard special... the chemistry of the soil, the rain that falls and late freezes that nip. Wind and coons, birds and disease, HEAT! the people that tend the vines and their attitudes, the food, the MUSIC, the ground water... folk traditions, seasonal festivals... the DIRT... right up to the BIG BLUE SKY, and everything in between! So, join us on a journey to DISCOVER Texas Hill Country Terroir! Let the scenic back roads lead you on a treasure hunt for REAL TEXAS GOLD... the PEOPLE, the places, the wine and food! Experience take-your-breath-away Natural Beauty, Award-winning Wineries, Vineyards, and winemakers, exceptional Wine and Picnic Markets, Handcrafted Beer and Spirits, Olive Farms, Epicurean Cafes, Hill Country Bakeries, "DIVES to Die For", Farmer's Markets, Wine Tasting Rooms, Chef-Owned Restaurants, Gourmet Chocolates, Artisan Cheese, Live Music Venues and the GREAT OUTDOORS.... miles and miles of TEXAS! There's so much to do and see in historic Fredericksburg and the surrounding Texas Hill Country! Follow the journey as we DISCOVER the treasure!

TEXAS MUSTANG GRAPES SAVED THE EUROPEAN WINE INDUSTRY Did you know that NATIVE MUSTANG GRAPES SAVED THE EUROPEAN WINE INDUSTRY from the Great French Wine Blight during the mid-19th century? From 1880 to 1910, TV Munson of Denison, Texas traveled 50,000 miles in 40 states, classifying over 1,000 native American vines. When the Phylloxera aphid threatened to destroy Europes Wine industry, Munson collected 15 wagon loads of dormant native grape cuttings and shipped them to France to be used as rootstock... villages were saved and grape growers could once again grow grapes in Europe. Munson was awarded the Legion of Honor, Chevalier du Merite Agricole, by the French Government for his efforts.

Along rivers and streams, fencerows on backroads native TEXAS MUSTANG GRAPES are everywhere!. From 1880 to 1910, T. V. Munson of Denison, Texas traveled 50,000 miles in 40 states, classifying over 1,000 native vines. 15 wagons of dormant stem cuttings for shipment to France. Most importantly, all lots were identified by species and shipped via three ships to southern France. The vines were the breeding stock for the rootstocks which saved the European wine industry. Hundreds of villages were saved and thousands of grape growers were able to grow grapes again. The rootstocks used throughout the world today originated in Europe from the Texas native grape material from Munson. For this effort, T. V. Munson was awarded the Legion of Honor, Chevalier du Merite Agricole, by the French Government.

  • @peachtreefbg is the perfect lunch spot and is quintessential Fredericksburg. A must if you’re in town and unlike many other restaurants, they are open for lunch every weekday 11-2:30 PM (closed only on Sunday). Our favorite is the pimento cheese sandwich served on their house-made bread complimented with a lemon-orange tea 😋😍 P.S. don’t forget to ask for the seasonal homemade cobbler made with fresh FBGTX peaches!

  • In the mood for German food? @ottosfbg has done an incredible job elevating German dishes and making them nouveau all the while keeping it authentic. We also love how they change up their menu to feature farm-fresh, local, seasonal-appropriate ingredients. Their Wurste Platte is a favorite and everything is made in-house from the sausage to the accoutrements. Link in bio to see their full menu and hours of operation. Insiders Tip: request to be added to their email list to get the insiders scoop on fabulous wine tastings at their sister store @labergeriemarket and exclusive wine dinners.
