Many venues offer on-site lodging. Otherwise, take advantage of Fredericksburg’s more than 1,500 vacation rentals, cabins and guesthouses available. Filter by amenities like group size, location, swimming pools and more.
Need catering for your group? There are numerous award-winning catering companies and local restaurants that can provide delicious food. Or book a private chef that can create a custom menu from drinks to dessert. From barbecue and authentic German to Texas Hill Country-inspired cuisine, there is something for every palate.
Attendee Activities Abound
After meeting time and collaboration, schedule activities for your group to discover all that Fredericksburg has to offer.
Historic Main Street is home to more than 150 shops, art galleries and boutiques. Find clothing, housewares, décor, locally made products and more. Whether shopping for yourself or for a friend, you are sure to find the perfect treasure.
Dive into the history of Fredericksburg. Learn more about the town’s deep German roots at Pioneer Museum. The 3.5-acre complex includes a one-room schoolhouse, historic Sunday Houses, a blacksmith shop and more. Groups can schedule and participate in special activities like blacksmithing demonstrations, candle making and more.
Fredericksburg is home to the Smithsonian-affiliated National Museum of the Pacific War. Dedicated to those who served in the Pacific War in World War II, learn about everything from how the war started to Pearl Harbor, the Doolittle Raid and the Atomic Bomb.
Home to more than 60 wineries and tasting rooms, Fredericksburg is at the center of Texas Wine Country. Plan a barrel room tour or pairing experience for your group to get a taste of award-winning Texas vino.
There are also around 15 tasting rooms located within a few blocks of Main Street, so your group won’t have to travel far to experience Fredericksburg’s wine scene.
For those wanting to explore the great outdoors, schedule a hike at Enchanted Rock State Natural Area. Make sure reservations are made in advance so your group has entry into the park.
