Fredericksburg Anniversary Trip

We celebrated our 5th anniversary with a quick trip to cute Fredericksburg. Cooler weather, a break from work, and light crowds always make Thanksgiving week a nice time to travel. In Daytripper style, the trip consisted mostly of eating, drinking, shopping, hiking, and more eating.

  • Headed south after a day of teaching for Matt, dropping Duncan at Betsy's along the way
  • Arrived in Fredericksburg 5 hours later and checked into our cool cabin - the Loeffler-Weber Haus, a neat German home built in 1846
  • Started our trip off right with a German dinner and music at the Auslander Biergarden
  • Coffee and awesome breakfast tacos at Mahaley's on main
  • Explored the Nimitz museum grounds and shopped on Main
  • Headed to Luckenbach for a quick t-shirt and music break
  • Scooted down the 290 Wine Road past the peach orchards with stops at Torre de Pietra and Grape Creek Vineyards (great patio), and Wildseed Farms
  • Grabbed a light lunch back in town at the Fredericksburg Brewery and explored more on Main, my favorite shop: Red, Matt's: Rustlin Rob's (turtle fudge break!)
  • Enjoyed an impressive dinner at Kelly's Cafe, right across the street from our cabin
  • Watched a few movies and explored the neat lot behind the cabin, complete with koi pond and heart-shaped hot tub
  • Headed to Enchanted Rock to hike the hill (in super windy conditions)
  • Made our way back to DFW to celebrate family Thanksgivings in Carrollton and Aubrey
