Architectural Digest recently listed Fredericksburg as the prettiest town in Texas. The Lone Star State has something over 3,300 cities and towns (including unincorporated areas), so for Fredericksburg to stand out, it must be truly special.  To be fair to other contenders, the story lists sites not within the Fredericksburg city limits, but then Fredericksburg is as much an idea as it is a specific place. Here are the reasons why Fredericksburg was chosen. Enjoy these images of a beautiful Hill Country town and decide for yourself if it’s really the prettiest in the state.

1. Yes, we have flowers!

These poppies are growing at Wildseed Farms, which was mentioned in the recognition. Wildflowers along county roads are breathtaking in spring and early summer, but the flowers on this farm along US Hwy 290, eight miles east of Fredericksburg, bloom almost year round.

2. Yes, there are fields of lavender!

These generous fields of lavender at Becker Vineyards, 12 miles east of Fredericksburg, along US Hwy 290 are unparalleled in beauty. They’re one more reason Architectural Digest chose Fredericksburg as the prettiest town in Texas.

3. And yes, wineries are beautiful places.

Wine isn’t the only appeal in Hill Country wineries; they all show off the natural beauty around them. Ambiance is important and universally well done.
