  • Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm (Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site): This farm offers a chance to experience how the pioneers lived! With seasonal activities such as canning, sheep shearing and sausage making, there’s lots to see at this living history farm.
  • Peach Season: Typically running from mid-May through August, peach season offers roadside markets and orchards full of delicious peaches. Fredericksburg is one of the best places to sample peach cobbles, ice cream and more.
