Texas Attractions: Willow City Loop

If the different types of landscapes in the state were to enter a beauty contest, undoubtedly two of the top contenders for the crown would be the majestic mountainous area of West Texas and the tall pine forests of East Texas. But perhaps the contestant that would be impossible to beat would be Willow City Loop, an amazing 13-mile stretch of road near Fredericksburg that will blow you away.

The surreal scenery through this unique geographical area features rugged terrain of hills and canyons, live oak trees and an abundance of wildlife. While it is beautiful any time of year, in the wildflower season of March and April it is a little piece of Heaven. A vast profusion of bluebonnets and other colorful blooms cover the meadows, creating an effect that is gorgeous beyond description.

Any visit to Texas Hill Country would not be complete without traveling this road. Moreover, the area is not only near Fredericksburg but is a drivable distance to New Braunfels, both of which are interesting towns to explore.

Texas Attractions: Fredericksburg

Deep in the heart of Texas Hill Country is Fredericksburg, a gem of a small town with a German heritage that remains very evident to this day. If you were to canvas the depth and breadth of our nation, it would be difficult to find a place where you can hear oom-pah music or a lively polka played by musicians who specialize in this area. Yet it can be occasionally enjoyed here and in other towns in the German section of Texas.

And the German influence isn’t confined to entertainment but is manifested in the food as well. Step into the Old German Bakery and get a whiff of the intoxicating aroma of fresh baked bread. Try one of the German pancakes, pastries or sausage rolls. Also, for lunch or dinner, the town offers several eateries that serve up authentic dishes from the old country.

In addition to music and food that has an old world influence, the town has St. Mary’s Catholic Church, a breathtakingly beautiful place of worship. Although it is small, it has a cathedral-like European old world feel.
