"15. Fredericksburg, Texas

Texans have long flocked to Fredericksburg, a city in Texas Hill Country that’s over an hour drive from both San Antonio and Austin. The city was founded by 120 German immigrants in 1846, and German was the predominant language spoken until the 1940s. Today, the area is known for its wineries (there are more than 50), excellent German food (try Otto’s German Bistro), and a replica of Vereins Kirche, the building that once housed the immigrant community’s church and school."
