The Perfect Fredericksburg Bachelorette Party Itinerary
Your personal party planners are here with the itinerary that a stressed-out, stretched-thin Maid of Honor needs. We get it, curating the perfect trip can be overwhelming. We’re making it easy with this list of tried and true favorites for a group of gals looking for a good time.
Thursday: Arrival, Country Drive and Dinner Downtown
- For the local ladies, hop in your car and take a scenic drive to Fredericksburg. For groups traveling from other parts of the country, you’ll want to rent or book a private car from the Austin Airport to make the 1.5 hour drive to Fredericksburg.
- Check into your hotel, settle in, add those personal party decor touches and then hit downtown Fredericksburg.
Stroll and shop along Main Street before heading to dinner at Chase’s Place Cocktails and Kitchen. There might be a bit of a wait, but trust us, it is worth it!
Pro Tip - Fredericksburg is an old-school small town and services like Uber and Lyft are not dependable or widely available. You’ll need to bring a car, rent a car, or coordinate private transportation for the best experience!
Day 2: Wine Tour, Dinner and Dancing
- Kick off the morning with cappuccinos from Caliche Coffee Bar & Roastery. It is a totally ‘grammable spot and will give you the caffeine kick you need for a long day full of fun...and wine. The day will be full of wine.
- Lean into the Fredericksburg wine vibes with Tipsy Tours. They’ll do all the planning (& the driving!) as you sip your way through Hill Country wine. OR if you want more control over the day and your stops, check out the 290 Wine Shuttle - a hop on/off style shuttle that hits the best wineries along its route. PS - our fave wineries to visit are:
- Pedernales Cellars - Savor the wines and take in the view at this sixth generation classic Texas Hill Country winery that grows Spanish and Rhone style wines.

Day 3: Coffee, Hiking and Luckenbach

- Once you are all rested and ready to rumble, snap some group pics and head to the famous Luckenbach, Texas for dinner, drinks and a show at the Luckenbach Dance Hall and Bar. Luckenbach is a quick 10 miles from Fredericksburg and worth the drive!
