Today it's known as the town that George Washington grew up in, while also reflecting the Mid Atlantic’s role in Civil War history. US capital Washington D.C. is a mere 50 miles south, making it an accessible weekend destination. Fredericksburg cabin rentals and vacation homes are the perfect base for your stay.

Art and culture affair
Largely a walking city, you can explore the historic core with a self-guided or expert-led tour.

The Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park is a top-rated attraction rendering homage to over 13,000 Americans killed in four battles. Costumed docents guide visitors through the restored 18th century pharmacy, Hugh Mercer Apothecary – you'll learn about leech therapy here.
The University of Mary Washington begs for a visit to its gorgeous, dog-friendly campus, and two in-house galleries Ridderhof Martin Gallery and the duPont Gallery. The latter showcases painting, sculpture, photography, and ceramics. Riverside Belmont/Gari Melchers Museum was where Impressionist painter Gari Melchers lived, and America's fifth president gets deserved spotlight at the James Monroe Museum and Memorial Library.
Fredericksburg makes the best of its riverine location as seen by the hectic canoeing, tubing, and kayaking activity by the Rappahannock. You could also hike along the river near Francis Thornton's Mill. Hiking and biking trails are well-marked. Bikers, note that it's possible to transport bikes on special racks reserved in local buses. How cool is that?
A day of laser tag, rock climbing, miniature golf, and more await at Central Park Fun-Land. For golfing, try the atmospheric Meadow Farms, Cannon Ridge, or Lees Hill courses.
