Tourist shopping is one of the main activities of travel throughout the world and Texas is no different. Some towns in Texas have made shopping their main tourist attraction, and a lot of tourists are being attracted to the towns.
Fredericksburg, Texas is said to be the eleventh most visited tourist town in the United States. It is also rumored to have over 400 bed and breakfast inns, mostly for the shoppers. Fredericksburg is located in south-central Texas, northwest of San Antonio and west of Austin.
Fredericksburg has well over 100 stores to satisfy the tourist shopper. While the husbands sit on the comfortable park benches stratigically placed down the main shopping street, their wives have the times of their lives, going from store to store, trying to see everything in every store. It will take them more than one day to complete the shopping trip in Fredericksburg. There are just too many stores to do it all in one day. They can enjoy a stay in a local B&B and finish the shopping the next day or even the day after that.
There are also cabins for lodging while the shopping is taking place. Day Dream Cabins, about 5 miles out of town, is one of the popular places to stay in a cabin.
