I recently visited a cute German town near Austin called Fredericksburg with my family. Everything about this place was very refreshing including the hilly drive. The terrain is so much different from Dallas so it is a like a breath of fresh air. From classy wineries to the unique antique shops on the Main street, the town has a very romantic feel to itself. There are plenty of fudge and chocolate shops but our favorite was the Popcorn shop (amazing samples to taste from). This town is worth visiting and if you have time, check out the most amazing hike in the Enchanted Rock State Park closeby.
