This group is all about getting out and about to see interesting places and/or events. The group will meet periodically. If you would like to suggest an outing or trip, contact your NWN President.




November 19   (Sat) – Fredericksburg Historic Home Tour & Holiday Market: The historical society is offering tours of homes that are on the National Register found in and around Fredericksburg.  A different set of six historical homes is selected each year and are decorated to the hilt for the holiday season. We will drive to the homes following a tour map.  At each stop, docents will provide historical information and we can spend as much time as we like gawking at the decorations. A Holiday Market, which is included in the price of the admission ticket, will feature 20+ boutique vendors selling unique gifts and holiday items. 


Admission is $40.00 – the money goes to a non-profit fund that supports charities.  Because getting into a restaurant in Fredericksburg on a weekend can be very time-consuming, the event organizers are offering boxed lunches, prepared by a very reputable local restaurant, for $20.00. Both of these require reservations and non-refundable prepayments. 


We will carpool leaving Austin at 7:30 AM and arrive back around 8:00 PM.   During our drive back home we will stop in Dripping Springs for dinner.   For full details, contact Dolores.
