Fredericksbuug to Dallas

Hi,

As part of our next US road trip we have one day to drive from Fredericksburg to Dallas.

We have all day so we can take it at a leisurely place. Any recommendations for the best route? Anything worth seeing on the way? Will need to stop somewhere for a light lunch.

Grateful for any advice.

Take 290 east to 281. Cool little art gallery in Johnson City http://www.tastewineart.com/home.html Great restaurants - Marble Falls Bluebonnet Cafe www.bluebonnetcafe.net/‎ Hico Koffee Kup http://www.koffeekupfamilyrestaurant.com/ Stephenville www.hardeightbbq.com/‎ Antique shops in Burnet and Lampassas. Glenn Rose has a fun drive through wildlife park and a State park with Dinosaur tracks.

If you want a very leisurely drive, with some scenery, I would recommend taking 290 east from Fredericksburg to Johnson City, and then taking 281 north all the way to I-20, and then you can take I-20 east to Ft. Worth and on to Dallas. (You could also take 281 north to 67 in Stephenville and take 67 all the way into Dallas, if you want to bypass Ft. Worth.)

Along that route, you have many many options for places to stop. Just between Fredericksburg and Johnson City you have numerous wineries, a fantastic distillery in Hye, and Wildseed Farms. Johnson City is the home to U.S. President Lyndon Johnson, and has several related historic sites. Along 281, you could stop in Marble Falls, Burnet, or Lampassas for lunch. Marble Falls is home to the Bluebonnet Cafe with its wonderful pies!

(I was typing as Octoboy was posting, obviously.)
