Just 18 miles north of Fredericksburg, there raised a massive pink granite dome called Enchanted Rock that said has drawn people for thousands of years. After several visits to Fredericksburg, we finally made it there last year during spring break.
The first impression we got when we arrived at the park was, this park is for kayaking or canoeing. We saw people paddling at every corner of the lake or kayaks/canoes rested by the campsites when the owner had their bbq lunch. When we stopped at the store, people were lining up at the kayaks/canoes rental as well. Later we read that the lake’s level usually stays constant so it is really good for water sports. No wonder!
We didn’t pack our swimsuit/swim trunk on our Spring Break trip to Hill Country because I thought the water would still be cold and we wouldn’t really have time for playing in the water. Well, I was wrong! It was 80s, really nice, and we had plenty of time when we went to Pedernales Falls State Park. Teenagers were swimming and had sunbathing. Families with younger kids were playing in the water, fishing, or just exploring the rocks with its unique formation.
If you want to learn about early farm living in Fredericksburg, don’t forget to stop at Lyndon B. Johnson State Park & Historic Site. One of the places of interests in Hill Country, located just before you go to Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park.
“What? The Texas White House?” you may ask. Yes, there is a White House in Texas. It’s where our 36th President, Lyndon B. Johnson, did his political activity during his presidential. Located in Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park at Stonewall, in this park we can also learn a lot about his birth, childhood, political career, retirement, and death.
