Texas’ Great Outdoors

Just beyond the city of Austin, flat plains give way to wooded canyons, spring-fed rivers, and the occasional cave—welcoming visitors to Texas Hill Country. Tucked among its rolling, flower-dappled hills are vineyards offering some of Texas’ best varietals and picturesque lakes, perfect for cooling off on a balmy Southern day. It’s the ideal destination for those who want to get out in nature without an isolated feel—Austin, as well as San Antonio, is only about 70 miles from Fredericksburg, Hill Country’s unofficial capital. There, you can explore the area’s rich German history and find the perfect launching point for a day of vineyard hopping.

Destination Highlights

  • Fredericksburg

    Texas Hill Country’s main attraction is the historic German settlement of Fredericksburg. Considered the gateway to Texas wine country, you can sniff, swirl, and sip in more than 30 area wineries that dot the rolling landscape.

  • Enchanted Rock State Park

    Climb the gigantic pink granite dome that rises above the picturesque countryside at this beloved state park. Hike, trail run, rock climb, or take in the scenery. (It’s great for stargazing, too.)

  • Wildseed Farms

    Take in the beautiful blooms of this wildflower farm, one of the most photogenic spots around Fredericksburg. Myriad walking trails wind around the property—there’s even a butterfly garden.



  • Forecasting Your Hill Country Vacation

    Though Texas Hill Country is fairly pleasant to visit year round, it makes for a lovely winter retreat for much of the U.S., with highs from December to February hovering in the 60s. Summers are hot and humid, with temperatures in the high 80s, but plenty of refreshing lakes and cool breezes offer an inviting respite from the heat.
