Delightful Girl’s Mystery Trip to Fredericksburg, TX

0 Comment

I can’t tell you how delightful this girls trip to Fredericksburg Texas was! It’s not often that I’m invited on a trip that someone else has planned out all of the details for. A wonderful couples trip to Natchez comes to mind, but this time I didn’t even know the location. I was up for the surprise adventure though!

All I knew were the dates, that we were driving, and to pack casual. I was excited!

My friend, Karen, picked me and my luggage up at my house on Friday morning. We drove for several hours, and were heading towards Waco, so I thought that might be it. We did stop in Waco at George’s for lunch, but then we got back on the road and kept driving! 

We stopped at Buc-ee’s ,for the world famous restrooms, around Temple. If you haven’t been to a Buc-ee’s, it’s at least a must stop-if not a destination. You’ll see what I mean about the restrooms! Lol

From there we kept driving and headed to the nicest little VRBO house a block or two off main in Fredericksburg! Yeehaw! I love visiting Fredericksburg! If you’ve followed us long, you’ve no doubt seen a few of our posts from previous trips.

Karen is such a good planner (and hostess), bringing plenty of groceries for snacks, breakfast and even dinner that first night. The next day we got up and started shopping up and down Main Street. Fredericksburg has blocks of shops and restaurants in downtown. It’s hard to hit all of them in just a weekend!

Hill & Vine 

Of course one of the best things about a trip is eating and it was time for lunch. We decided to eat at Hill & Vine, a block or so off of Main Street towards our VRBO house. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Fredericksburg. The food and atmosphere are super. The outside area has lots of seating, a fire pit and even a VW bus bar. Expect live music most weekend nights. Such a cool place. 

Fredericksburg Pie Company

What’s a trip to Fredericksburg without pie? We headed straight to Fredericksburg Pie Company right after lunch. This scrumptious little pie shop is only open Thursday thru Saturday from 10 am until sold out. This means you should get there by early afternoon if you want any pie, especially on a Saturday. Thankfully, we made it and enjoyed every last bite!

78624 The Bar

After a little more shopping, we decided to take a break at 78624 The Bar. I had not been in here previously, but definitely want to return now that I’ve been introduced. I’ll take a stab at describing this classic lounge, although go check it out if you are in Fredericksburg. We are talking weighty, leather seating vignettes, accessorized with rustic elegance and housed in an original historic building on Main Street. It has a relaxing vibe and is perfect for hanging with some friends. This is exactly what we did, since some new and old friends, from our hometown, just happened in while we were there! 

Cabernet Grill

For fine wine and dining in Fredericksburg, you can’t beat this classic. Cabernet Grill (Texas Wine Country Restaurant) is definitely an old favorite. The food is beyond delicious and I can’t imagine that you won’t find a wine that you love here. The upscale rustic restaurant has two levels for seating. Reservations are a must tho because it’s very popular. You can actually stay here too at their Cotton Gin Village. It’s all on the same property. 

Rockbox Theater

After dinner, we went for some entertainment at Rockbox Theater. Soul Sessions was there and put on a fabulous soul music cover show. So fun! Book tickets online in advance. I’ve seen several groups here and have not been disappointed. 

Hotel 1928

Sunday was just a lazy day meandering back home. After riding around looking at some other  Fredericksburg sites, we headed back. Waco, again, was a good stopping place for a late lunch. We lucked out and got a table at The Brasserie. This is one of the restaurants at Hotel 1928. We wanted to see the newly renovated hotel and just thot we’d ask about a table. So glad we did! The food was superb and the hotel itself is extraordinary. This hotel deserves it on post, but our favorites were the restaurants and the library. What a treat to see and dine in this exquisitely restored 1928 building in Waco. 

We packed a lot into our weekend and I couldn’t have been more delighted with my 1st girls mystery trip! Fredericksburg and Waco came thru for us!
