Katie Turpin loves living in Fredericksburg and shares all of the reasons why on her blog, Sunshine Texas Day. Luckily, we convinced the mother of three to create a cheat sheet for all of you. Thanks, Katie!
Relax and get a cozy night’s sleep right on Main Street at the historic and fabulously decorated Albertina House. Or, for an out-on-the-farm experience, look no further than the Bluebird Farmhouse, a 1930s turkey farm turned B&B, situated on 12 acres, less than a mile from town.
To enjoy a burger and a beer under swaying pecan trees and a starlit sky, try the Pecan Grove Store. If it’s wine you’re after, visit La Bergerie. Here you’ll find a great bottle and everything for a top-notch cheese and charcuterie board, including in-house smoked meats. Narrow Path Winery has a quaint tasting room on Main Street, or you can venture out of town a bit for natural wines and awesome views at Southold Farm + Cellar.
