About ten miles east of Fredericksburg are two interesting wineries. The Becker Winery is one of them. President George W. Bush uses Becker wines for many White House banquets. Yet many of their wines are reasonably priced. There is no charge for tasting, except for "reserve" wines.
The interesting building in the photo is but a small part of this museum complex. If you are interested in the Pacific Theatre of World War II, this is a must stop. This was known as the Nimitz Hotel and was built to resemble a steamboat. It is now part of the museum complex.
For more on this museum, see my "things to do" tips found below.
By the way the population of Fredericksburg is 8,911.
The nation's largest wildflower seed production farm is just a few miles east of Fredericksburg on highway 290 (near the Beckery Winery). We were there in February so no wildflowers were blooming but it is still an interesting facility to see at any time.
- Pros:great German food, great wines, lots of shopping
- Cons:I'm sure it would be hot there in the summer, but so what?
- In a nutshell:A favorite town to visit in the state of Texas
You may be fortunate to see a ceremony such as this one; an old soldier is honored with a plaque on an outdoor wall.... more travel advice
A fun place, often with live music, Texas-style. The beer was cold and good. more travel advice
