and it is about one of my favorite places to go in the great state of Texas. It is in central Texas in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. This special place is called The Willow City Loop. It is just north of Fredericksburg. This is a scenic drive taking a big circular route over many miles of beautiful countryside. There are many spectacular vistas from hill tops as well as drives through many limestone creek low water crossings. If you go early in the morning or late in the evening you will see more whitetail deer than you can count. Any time of the year is a great time to take this drive but without a doubt the number one time is in the spring when the Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes are in full bloom. It is better to go during the week, it gets pretty crowded on the weekends. On the way just before you get there, stop off at Rabke's
and buy some of their beef jerky to enjoy on your drive and a cold drink. After going around the loop a time or two or three, go to Fredericksburg and enjoy the many fine places to eat, the many antique shops, ice cream shops, hot fudge shops, you get the idea. After you can't eat another bite, go to my favorite five and dime store, "Dooleys." It is as close to you can get to an old timey dime store today. There are some great places to stay in Fredericksburg or you can stay down the road in Kerrville.
