Going to Fredericksburg for the weekend, our anniversary.

Any recommendations for places to go? Seen the Pacific Museum, so looking for something different. Not really interested in the crowded specialty shops. More interested in something to see outdoors, history.

Any place to have a nice dinner with live music? Not real fond of German food though.

Mostly going to drive the Willow City Loop bluebonnet trails, backroad exploring.

Thanks!

For Mexican Food, Hilda Tortillas on Tivydale Rd. just off TX 16. No music and not open on Sunday. Pasta Bella downtown for Italian but no music. The Hill Country Tractor Club has their spring bluebonnet ride Saturday. Starts at Christ Lutheran Church in Cherry Spring. I'm going. Wildseed Farms on US 290 is an interesting place to walk around but can be crowded. Most folks go for the wine thing all over the county. My wife lived there until we got married a couple of years ago but we never really went out at night.

Steve, when we visit our daughter in Austin/Lakeway she drags us there and we enjoy it being of German descent but sorry I cant remember the name of the German sounding restaurant we go to. Regardless its a fun quaint little town HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

Steve..... If y'all get to feeling energetic , drive a short ways to Enchanted Rock and climb to the top. Something like 2800' or so if I remember correctly.
Beautiful view from the top. Can see for 20 or more miles. Wingnut

Wingnut might be on to something. Check out these pics of Enchanted Rock:

Maybe one of these restaurants will sound familiar to John T:

be sure and get reservations thru Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept. They limit entries and weekends in the spring are very busy

Think it was the Auslander No 7 we visited in Fredricksburg HOWEVER the cities of Gruene and New Braunfels I like even
better but that's not where they are headed.......In Austin we liked the Salt Lick GREAT BARBECUE...

We will be back there this Thanksgiving God willing after a trip west to more National Parks and Carlsbad Caverns

Admiral Chester Nimitz was born there.
There must be a museum or his boyhood home (he lived in his grand dad's hotel) or some such to see.

My folks swore up & down that I was too young to remember my trip to Carlsbad. Then I started telling them the bits I can remember. Right about that time I heard a strange sound -- of their jaws hitting the floor!

No, do not remember how old (or young) I was s'posed to be.

Got to thinking -- Carlsbad Caverns is in New Mexico. Natural Bridge Caverns is the one in San Antonio area. Was at Natural Bridge Caverns as a kid. Couldn't tell now which memories come from which caverns.

Wingnut....the top of Enchanted rock is a bit over 1800'. My property is about 8 miles from there and it's 2400' elevation. Going downhill all the way to the entrance. Like it was said, a reservation ahead of time is necessary....it fills up quick. Backwoods Bar-B-Q is good, just off Tivydale rd., Catfish Haven on main is good, Porky's is a good burger place, on your left going out 87 past the post office. There are a lot of wineries open to visit if you like that sort of thing.

Thanks everyone!

I've done the Enchanted Rock hike a few times. I know my wife wouldn't be up for that, and I would have serious doubt about my self anymore!

I may try to catch some of ya'll after the tractor ride when you get back get back.

Thanks again!
