Black Friday in Fredericksburg!

No, I'm not talking about Halloween....I'm talking about the biggest shopping day of the year, the day after Thanksgiving! Did you know that the busiest weekend of the entire year in Fredericksburg is the weekend after Thanksgiving? More and more families are choosing to get away during Thanksgiving and spend some quality time with the family a little more "unplugged" than they would be at home. So, if you are thinking of making a Texas Hill Country Thanksgiving your new family tradition, then you need to make reservations now.

Don't spend your weekend waiting in line at department stores like these poor folks. Come enjoy a little Texas hospitality in the Hill Country. Fredericksburg offers well over 100 unique stores where you can find something for everyone on your list. Call Absolute Charm today at 1.866.244.7897 or book online at while we still have a great selection of luxurious accommodations for you and your family!

Fredericksburg Theater Company is running Nunsense II: the Second Coming this weekend and next weekend.  FTC runs 6 or so shows per year, and they are simply first rate!  If you ever have a chance to come to town during one of their shows I HIGHLY recommend getting tickets before you get here as they do sell out.  This show is just hilarious!
