Fredericksburg Named Prettiest Town in Texas

Fredericksburg is the prettiest town in Texas, at least by Architectural Digest's standards.

The architecture magazine released a list of the prettiest towns in every U.S. state and our Hill Country neighbor was victorious in the Lone Star State. The magazine kept it brief on why Fredericksburg beat out all of Texas' tiny towns.

How did the magazine determine Fredericksburg as the prettiest? It felt that the small town embodied everything it was looking for – rich in architecture, layered with nature and full of culture.
Settled by Germans, this Texas Hill Country town features wineries, lavender fields, and the country’s largest family-owned wildflower-seed farm (Wildseed Farms).
Flowers, farms and wineries are a solid representation of what Fredericksburg and the rest of the Hill Country is all about. Known for bounties of flowers and the hilly backdrop, the area is a go-to during the cooler fall months when the leaves change colors. In these neck of the woods, Fredericksburg and its neighbors seem to be one of the few parts of Texas that actually experiences all four seasons (or at least three).
