I haven't been to Fredricksburg since I was a child, but we have been saying for several years that we were going to come down to hill country for a weekend getaway. I have been thinking of Austin, but if we stay downtown the prices are pretty outrages and the only reason to stay there would be to bar hop around 5th-6th street. So then my thoughts turned to Fredricksburg. Not only could we take in the cities local flavor, we might do LBJ, Luckenback, touristy stuff. I thought coming for Octoberfest would be really fun. My question is, are the crowds going to be terrible, or will it still be pretty laid back? This will probably be a late anniversary trip(been married 11 yrs in August)Would we be better off coming up another weekend in October? We don't want huge crowds and long lines everywhere. Anybody have any suggestions?
