It’s no secret that Fredericksburg, Texas is not only rich in history and German heritage but a mixed bag of culture as well. Located in the heart of Texas Wine Country just outside of San Antonio, this eclectic town has a great punch list of places to visit and things to do! From hiking and camping to learning about the Texas Rangers (not the baseball team) and World War 2, you’ll love this quaint German town that beg you to return. There’s lot to see and do so we put together our first timers guide to Fredericksburg. We hope you enjoy reading about our favorites!
Rarely do we watch television to begin with except for on rainy days or when we want to watch a game or race. However, it seemed that our over-the-air (OTA) television reception was just not hacking it for us on the days we wanted to take in a game or some program. Being that we aren’t satellite dish users, we had to do something.
Have you ever stayed at an RV park or campground that made you feel like a kid again? Well, Texas Wine Country Jellystone Camp Resort in Fredericksburg, Texas did just that. And even though I was attending an adult work summit there, it was a fun place to let my hair down. Its a great place to take the kids for a weekend, week or even a month. They have everything from great meetings rooms for the big kids to a big pool and bouncy carpet outside for the littles! So, let’s see why we liked it!
There’s nothing worse than driving or pulling your RV down the road only to experience a tire blowout. Oftentimes, tire blowouts or flats happen in the most inopportune times and places. Also, they can be quite unnerving and scary if you don’t know how to handle your RV or vehicle. However, what if I told you there was a product out there that alerted you of tire issues BEFORE that blowout or flat? We found one! Its the Truck System Technologies TST 507-RV-6-C tire pressure and temperature monitoring system.
RV travel is fun and adventurous but it does come with some challenges. Sometimes finding a safe affordable campground just to lay your head for a few hours may not be on on your route. If only you can score a free or cheap place to pull in for the night that won’t rob our wallet or take us off the beaten path. Well, through our travels, we’ve found some great overnight RV parking options that may be what you’re looking for.
One of our favorite things to do when we lived up in New England was watching the lobster and fishing boats return to port with their fresh catch. The smell of the ocean breeze coupled with thoughts of a good lobster boil on a summer evening just couldn’t be matched. With that, summer was the perfect time to check out the New England summer seafood festivals where crustaceans and sea creatures are the stars of the show…and our dinner plates! Summer, in my opinion, is the best time to visit the North Atlantic coast.
Kitchens in RVs, campers and boats are tiny. We all know that. But that doesn’t mean we have to compromise by limiting our kitchen necessities. It also doesn’t mean we should have to constantly worry about messes made going down the road.
But, we as RV owners, also have other concerns when it comes to storage; weight. Since our fifth wheel has limited space and weight capabilities, we had to come up with creative ways to store our kitchen essentials. So, we’ve put together our list of space saving RV kitchen space saving storage solutions based on what we use in our RV galley.
