Colonial and Civil War history come alive in Fredericksburg and it's far from stodgy. Visitors to Fredericksburg are treated to a unique glimpse of both our nation's founding, as well as its turmoil during the Civil War.

Each building in its 40-block historic district holds a unique story. Whether you're learning about them from a horse drawn carriage, a trolley or a walking tour, you'll enjoy all that Fredericksburg has to offer. In addition to its historic attractions, you'll love the city's chef-owned restaurants, art galleries, specialty shops and year-round events.
