A Walk Around Fredericksburg, Texas

As I write this, we’re still four days away from our move to Fredericksburg. We’re looking forward to living and working there with the great owners and staff of the Peachtree Inn.

Fredericksburg is a German settlement about an hour or so north of the north side of San Antonio (San Antonio is a BIG city). The town was founded in 1846 and named after Prince Frederick of Prussia. Fredericksburg is the county seat of Gillespie County and as of 2010 had about 10,000 residents.

Fredericksburg is in the hill country of Texas, which means nice breezes and a little bit of cooler weather. Enchanted Rock is nearby (it’s on our San Antonio Bucket List) and a lot of visitors come just to climb the rock.

When we visited at the beginning of July we spent some time in town and had a picnic lunch under the pavilion at the park, or markplatz. It reminded us a lot of the three years we spent in Germany while Scott was in the military. The downtown area is an easy walk with plenty of stores and restaurants. The Markplatz has a public restroom, water fountain, playground and covered pavilions with plenty of picnic tables. We’re looking forward to visiting the museums there and the nearby parks and historic sites.

By the time you read this, we’ll have been in Fredericksburg, Texas for about three weeks. I’m already working on a new bucket list and I can’t wait to share all the fun things to do in the town and the surrounding area.
