Do Some Shopping

Main Street is where it’s at when you want to do some shopping. The central shopping district (AKA “The Magic Mile”) is separated from the West Main Street shopping district by Marktplatz. It’s truly the heart and soul of Fredericksburg. Shop amidst historical buildings, walk the wide sidewalks and courtyards, and enjoy a festival or seasonal event while you’re at it. Take a leisurely stroll hand in hand through the colorful native gardens, witness the many historical sculptures, and visit the Vereins Kirche Museum for a look at the rich history of the area. Who says you can’t learn new things even on a romantic getaway?

Wake Up Early For the Sunrise

Nothing says romance like gazing at a sunrise together. Take a hike up to Enchanted Rock State Natural Area for breath-taking 360-degree views. If you prefer a slower pace, follow the walking trails at Cross Mountain Park for more amazing views or even a picnic. Share a snuggle as you watch the sun embark on a new day and celebrate your appreciation for each other at the same time.
