# 12 Let’s go to Luckenbach Texas

Like we said before, if you go to a fun city don’t focus in on it  so much that you miss what’s within a short drive a way. For us after 2 weeks of fun in San Antonio we moved  60 miles up the road to the “Hill Country” town of Fredericksburg. Settled by German immigrants in 1846. I will describe as the main hub for Luckenbach, the massive and beautiful Enchanted Rock, and just down the road in Stonewall where you will find the famed ” LBJ ‘s  Ranch AKA The Texas White House“. The area is equal distance away from both Austin and San Antonio, so if you ever visit either and want to take a ride it’s worth checking out. LBJ’s home makes me think of Graceland, you just got to love the 60’s and all the hi tech gadgets (let’s just say telephone obsession, and I thought my dad was bad) and decor, but no green shag carpet thanks to Lady Bird.

The area was so interesting we  spent 3 days canvasing it all, and really enjoyed getting lost on many of the back roads discovering ranches, more winery’s and scenic views. GPS find KOA… recalculating…when possible make a u turn.

The Hill Country is  a Texas Napa Valley waiting to happen with many first class locations well worth stopping in.
