A vacation home in Fredericksburg, "America's most historic city"
Founded as a port city along the Rappahannock River, Fredericksburg was once the farthest point navigable by ships heading out into the Old World. 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.
Fredericksburg is home to several reputable local diners. For delectable hamburgers and onion rings, dive into the unpretentious Allman's Bar-B-Que.

Washington regional chain, Hard Times Cafe (not Hard Rock Cafe) offers live music, pool, and typical pub grub, while the slightly upmarket Bistro Bethem is all about Southern specialties, seafood and game.
