Traditionally known as a high-end antique town and elegant bed and breakfast destination with historic German heritage, Fredericksburg has further transformed itself into a fine art, fine dining, unique shopping, and winery destination. Those attractions continue to grow further as our number of tourists jumped from one million annual visitors in 2008 to an estimated two million in 2013. The natural beauty of the rolling hills, with spring wildflowers carpeting the roadsides, present the backdrop for an idyllic small town setting that boasts big city perks such as world class art found in fifteen art galleries, numerous award winning wineries and restaurants, boutique hotels, The National Museum of the Pacific War, Enchanted Rock State Park, and the prestigious Boot Ranch Golf Resort with one of America's favorite professional golf story's in Hal Sutton's master-plan for the ultimate golf experience all in one special little "small town".
Fredericksburg and the surrounding Hill Country are also a sportsman's paradise that draw visitors from around the state for their exotic game ranches and guided hunts. Visitors from throughout the United States and abroad make Fredericksburg a recurring yearly destination and increasingly their home. These are just a few of the reasons that in the past year alone, Fredericksburg was named “The Top Destination for 2014 Spring Travel by TripAdvisor, Travel and Leisure’s “America’s Most Romantic Winter Getaway” , “10 Best Wine Travel Destinations” by Wine Enthusiast and “Top Eight Cultural Spots” by the Huffington Post.
