Fredericksburg Introduction

Historic Fredericksburg encompasses hundreds of buildings that date back to the 18th and 19th centuries; this city also played an important strategic role during the Civil War, and visitors can walk in the footsteps of the brave soldiers at a number of storied battlefield sites. You can also head out to a winery, drop into a museum, challenge your handicap with a round of golf, or shop till you drop—this vibrant Virginia city has it all. Annual cultural highlights include a colorful Greek Festival and the prestigious Fredericksburg Festival of the Performing Arts, which brings a stimulating program of high-quality music, drama, and dance to the city.

Don’t miss George Washington’s boyhood home at Ferry Farm, where the gardens showcase 18th-century plants. The Mary Washington House, purchased by the President for his mother, is now a museum. For some more modern-day culture, enjoy gourmet cuisine and classic Broadway musicals at the Riverside Center for the Performing Arts, or turn the clock back again with a horse-drawn carriage ride round the old town. The Children’s Museum of Fredericksburg, meanwhile, provides hard hats for an expedition into reproduction limestone caves and an archaeological dig at the Dino Dig Pit.
