Family fun in Fredericksburg

Family fun in Fredericksburg


it’s known as a great getaway in the Texas Hill Country where you can relax sip some wine and what we need to do and that’s just one thing to do in Fredericksburg there’s a lot happening at this destination for families this summer here with the preview of everything that we need to know about Amanda Kuhn with the Fredericksburg CVB thanks so much for being here thanks for having us Fredericksburg is a hop skip and a jump from Houston we need to really take advantage of this because this is really the season hint hint to go right tis the season of peaches that is so awesome and there’s so many great things and I was gonna say a lot of people think of Fredericksburg is a great getaway for the girlfriends it really is a great getaway for the entire family right Amanda yes family friendly getaway it’s a great place to go during the week load up the kids and head to the whole country I like there’s more than 400 bed and breakfast right so you can really stay in Fredericksburg and feel like you’re at home have a great cool pool and just hang out it’s also really really close by I mean for people who maybe find it a bit overwhelming to plan a summer getaway and the cost of travel no plane tickets involved it’s just a short little drive down the road that’s about three and a half hours and you’re there just load up the kids and take a little road trip talk to me about the peaches because this is the beginning of the season is that right halfway through this season right now but we should have peaches through August all of the roadside stands are just full of peaches you can pick your own and then of course there’s more peach cobbler and peach ice cream than you could ever dream of and do most of the peaches come from Gillespie County they do we grow them right there in Fredericksburg so that’s seven hundred acres more than that actually of peach trees and some of the orchards offer the option right where you can go and pick your own yes you can pick your own you can actually get on a hayride at some of the orchards and go down to the peach trees and pick your own bushel of peaches so that is I know I think we need to go Moscow right well what about shopping because after a long day of picking the peaches you guys have great shopping there and this is not just like you know run to a regular store this is one-of-a-kind shopping yes 150 shops boutiques and art galleries and in our downtown area and beyond so you can find you know something for Mom something for everyone but there are also tons of little treasures hidden around
