“Let’s go to Luck­en­bach, Texas/ With Way­lon and Wil­lie and the boys/This suc­cess­ful life we’re livin’/Got us feuding like the Hat­fields and McCoys”: A visit to Luck­en­bach will chill you right out, and you might get to see a soon-tobe-coun­try leg­end per­form (www. luck­en­bach­texas.com).

Wild­flower Ridge Al­paca Ranch: Worth the short drive from Fred­er­icks­burg to feed a baby al­paca or two (www.wr-ala­paca-ranch.com).

Na­tional Mu­seum of the Pa­cific War: The for­mer home of Ad­mi­ral Chester Nimitz has been made into a mu­seum and an ex­tremely im­pres­sive one at that. War mu­se­ums are not my thing, but this is an ex­tremely well laid-out, in­for­ma­tive and en­light­ened ex­am­ple of how th­ese things can be done right. The serene, at­tached Ja­panese Peace Gar­den is par­tic­u­larly thought­ful.
