Thanksgiving is the perfect time of year to give thanks and celebrate with your loved ones in Fredericksburg. With fewer crowds, temperatures in the lower 70s and Texas hill country scenery lit up with fall colors, this is sure to be a holiday experience to delight the whole family.
If you’re planning to cook a meal, H-E-B Grocery has all the ingredients for a successful Thanksgiving dinner, or they have pre-made meals available at their deli. Another option is Wal-Mart on the south end of town.
If you want someone else to take care of the cooking this year, there are some great local options:
- Make a reservation for a traditional Thanksgiving lunch at Hilltop Cafe or The Club at Baron’s Creekside.
- August E’s is offering pre-order Thanksgiving meals for pick-up with all the classic fixings.
- David’s Old-fashioned Pit BBQ will be serving a traditional Thanksgiving meal with select BBQ options available, for dine-in or carryout. Pre-order family meals are also available.
- For less traditional fare, try Taqueria Altos de Jalisco or Martini’s Seafood House.
The day after Thanksgiving is a great time to explore the Fredericksburg area. Take a stroll along Main Street to shop for Black Friday deals and enjoy the charming ambiance. Check out the nightly lighting ceremony held at Marktplatz downtown (100 block of W. Main St.), starting at 5pm with holiday music, followed by historical background of the town’s German heritage and a countdown to the lighting of the Christmas tree and German Christmas Pyramid.
If you are here for the weekend, head over to Wildseed Farms to pick up the last gourds of the season, or have a glass of local wine in their tasting room. Continue your wine tasting adventure with a stop at Grape Creek Vineyards or Signor Vineyards. On your way out of town, make sure to visit the country store and pick up your Christmas tree at Jenschke Orchard.
