Your Ticket to History
HISTORY AROUND EVERY BEND, BEAUTY AT EVERY TURN.
Where modern life moves at just the right pace, and history is always within reach, the Fredericksburg Area has a timeless appeal. Comprised of the city of Fredericksburg, VA, along with Spotsylvania and Stafford Counties, the region welcomes you with rolling hills, fascinating Civil War battlefields, lush wineries and inviting Old Town streets in a blend of small town charm and natural beauty – setting the perfect scene for your visit. With American heritage worthy of the most ambitious history tour, and all the amenities for an ideal family vacation, the Fredericksburg Area boasts some of the most desirable things to do in Virginia.
Close to Washington, D.C., and Richmond on I-95, this is where chef-owned restaurants, art galleries and studios, antiques and specialty shops line your path – keeping you right in step with the area’s rich history. Explore George Washington’s boyhood home, Ferry Farm. Discover where four major Civil War battles were fought on more than 7,000 acres of National Park Service-preserved grounds. Visit the Belmont estate of early 20th century artist Gari Melchers. And make yours the best vacation in history with outdoor adventure – canoeing on peaceful Lake Anna or kayaking the Rappahannock River.
