As local travel experts, we know what travelers are looking for when it comes to finding the perfect accommodations for their next trip. To compile our lists, we scour the internet to find properties with excellent ratings and reviews, desirable amenities, nearby attractions, and that something special that makes a destination worthy of traveling for.
Anyone in search of a wild adventure need not look any farther than the Giraffe Suite at Longneck Manor. Located in beautiful Fredericksburg, this unique overnight experience lets you sleep on the second floor of a giraffe barn, directly above several of the majestic creatures. There are lots of windows in the suite, so you can see their “long necks” (hence the name of the zoo) peering in at you! It’s definitely the most unique giraffe encounter in Texas.
Please note: there is a two-night minimum for the Giraffe Suite. Visit the Longneck Manor website or Facebook page for more information, such as the current nightly rate, and/or to book your stay. If you only have time for a day trip, animal encounters are offered for non-overnight guests, as well.
