Where you’ll be

Fredericksburg, Virginia, United States

Fredericksburg’s identity and character are directly related to its rich history. Captain John Smith, while exploring the Chesapeake Bay region, reached this area in 1608. Across the Rappahannock River on Ferry Farm, a boy named George Washington grew to manhood. People describe Fredericksburg as an attractive place to live and do business, using phrases like quality of life, small-town atmosphere, and sense of place. Fredericksburg’s Historic District remains the community’s social, political, and cultural core and continues to define its identity. It is thriving with restaurants, gastropubs, small shops, art studios, and ongoing festivals. Please stop by the visitor center on 706 Caroline Street and watch the video on the history of the area, get a local and VA map, and brochures of various sites to visit in the area. They are also helpful in answering any questions you may have.
