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. Be sure to take a pair of binoculars for the best viewing of the bats in flight. To get the latest emergence time information call, 866-978-2287.

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.

Hikers can view of the tunnel from the trail, but entrance into the tunnel is strictly prohibited to prevent disturbance of the bat colony, and for the safety and well-being of visitors.

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!
