When planning a trip to a new destination, it is necessary to figure out the basic aspects like accommodation, local transportation, must-visit spots, and the weather to make sure you are prepared. Based on the network of local transportation and proximity to key attractions from your accommodation, you can design an itinerary to maximize the fun and minimize any hassles.
If you’re excited to visit the gorgeous Fredericksburg town located in the Texas Hill Country to sample the local wines and beers, hike along the picturesque landscape, and enjoy the relaxing ambiance of a quiet town, you can do a little homework to understand the modes of local Fredericksburg transportation.
Fredericksburg Transportation By Car
Depending on the nature of your trip, you can pick the right option. If you plan to simply relax inside your fully furnished vacation home and walk to the nearest spots for dining and shopping, you won’t need a car in town. But, if you’d like to drive to the surrounding towns and enjoy scenic road trips, you can either bring your own car (if you live close to Fredericksburg) or rent a car from any of the major national rental car agencies. One of the spots is located at Gillespie County Airport, where you can rent a comfortable car for your group.
Walk Around Town
You can pick an accommodation close to the downtown area and find all the necessary things within walking distance. Fredericksburg has a pedestrian-friendly downtown where you can reach different locally owned and operated businesses for a fun-filled experience. You can pick a map from the Visitor Center in the downtown area that maps the route, especially useful for tourists on foot. Check out special trolley rides and historic walking tours offered in the downtown area to understand the history and appreciate the significance of the local buildings with an expert. Depending on the weather, you can also find horse-drawn carriage tours for a unique experience with your family and friends. If you’re in the mood to hike, you’ll find several scenic trails in town.
Shuttle and Tours
If you’re in town to enjoy the local wineries and vineyards, you can skip the trouble of hunting for a designated driver in your group. Enjoy access to many shuttles and wine tours that allow you to hop and explore the different wineries. Check out popular private wine tours offered by 19th Hole Wine Tours, 290 Wine Shuttle, About Town Wine Experiences, Fredericksburg Wine Hopper, and many more. For a private taxi service to the airports at San Antonia or Austin, you can contact All Around Taxi. They also offer private tours to wineries.
Fredericksburg Regional Transit, commonly called the Fred bus, offers accessible local transportation to the downtown area and connects several areas in the north and south of town. You can also take a look at the routes offered by Alamo Regional Transit.
