The Fredericksburg area is a classic blend of modern life and small town charm. Conveniently located on I-95 between Washington, D.C. and Richmond, the region boasts rolling countryside, Civil War battlefields, wineries and a charming Old Town.
In downtown, find chef-owned restaurants, art galleries and studios, and antique and specialty shops. George Washington grew up at Ferry Farm, and the great early 20th century artist, Gari Melchers, lived and painted the local scene at his estate, Belmont. Four major Civil War battles were fought in the region, and more than 7,000 acres of hallowed ground are preserved by the National Park Service. Water sports abound on beautiful Lake Anna and the pristine Rappahannock River.
