Great Things TX Hill Country Homes offer Children/Youth in Fredericksburg

Fredericksburg activities wonderfully accommodate children and youth.  In addition to excellent schools, Texas Hill Country homes in Fredericksburg offer families a tight knit, mid-sized community of 10,000 residents.  Come to visit or view Fredericksburg TX real estate and see the exciting and educational activities in store for all ages.

Enchanted Rock State Park and Natural Area is minutes north of charming historic downtown Fredericksburg and Fredericksburg TX homes and subdivisions.  At 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. on June 16, 2011, Enchanted Rock offers the “Bats of Enchanted Rock for Kids” program.  The Natural Resource Specialist for Texas Parks and Wildlife will teach about bats, what they eat, where they live, and how they help nurture Texas Hill Country real estate.

Enchanted Rock State Park runs a yearlong calendar of programs.  Plus, the Park and Natural Area feature 1,643 acres on Big Sandy Creek—great places to picnic, hike, go caving, rock climbing, and camping, and to learn about Native American legends surrounding the massive solid granite dome, its namesake.

Lady Bird Johnson Park and Municipal Golf Course features an amusement park, recreation, and great affordable golf.  In between the outdoor activities, family love to take in one of the highly acclaimed, family friendly performance at Rockbox Theater, too.

Fredericksburg’s educational venues range from arts and crafts to dance to farming to top-notch museums.  Families learn about military history of the Pacific War of World War II at the Admiral Nimitz Museum & Historical Center and the Japanese Gardens in Fredericksburg.  The George Bush Gallery is next door.  On three acres of native Texas Hill Country landscape, Pioneer Museum features a living farm, frequent activities, and educational programs for children.

Older children may just want to get out and bicycle along the scenic byways that branch out in every direction from Fredericksburg.

Then, there are 720 acres at the LBJ State Park & Historic Site between Fredericksburg and Johnson City.  The Park is across the Pedernales River from the Texas White House.  The historical significance of the property, however, goes way back to the Native American nomads, Spanish conquistadors, and German immigrants.  It combines these cultures at a 269-acre facility that offers historical study, picnic areas, nature study, fishing, swimming and more.  The spring wildflower displays are brilliant.  Enclosures contain buffalo, Texas longhorn cattle, and white-tailed deer.  A Visitor Center exhibits memorabilia from President Johnson’s presidency and the history of the area.

Children and youth from the city love to explore Wildseed Farms, Hill Country peach farms and vineyards, Wildflower Ridge Alpacas and other interesting operating farms and ranches in the area.
