Best Day Trip

TIE: Fredericksburg, Enchanted Rock

After hiking up the gentle but breathtaking mound of Enchanted Rock, nothing seems nicer than a relaxing afternoon in a biergarten or a refreshing peach ice-cream cone in downtown Fredericksburg. Celebrating Texas' German culture, this small tourist town offers quaint shopping and plenty of Wiener schnitzel for the whole family. Check out the Japanese garden, too.
