Enjoyed our visit here, everything was in walking distance, the place is immaculate. It seemed on every corner there was a sign about the building. Be sure to see the stone that was used to buy and sell the slaves when they came off the...More

You have a very well kept up historic downtown area with some nice little shops and great dining. Don't stop there though, make sure to take in all of the history in the area also. Great experience.

Walkable downtown with good on-street parking. Lots of interesting historic buildings with unique shops, historic vistas, cafes, and at least one exceptional dining offering - Foode. Easy access to and from the major highways.

You will find bed and breakfasts/inns, apothecary, bakery, shops, museums, restaurants, stately homes, and more. A great walking tour in good weather or an easy drive tour....More

My wife and I enjoy walking downtown especially during he holiday season. There are a lot of boutiques and antique stores. Most of the dining choices are reasonably priced except for Capital Ale house.

Local here since 2003. Old run down buildings masquerading as historic era shops, over priced mediocre dining, limited parking, irregular sidewalks, lots of stop lights, close quarter ratted out housing surrounding downtown, and plenty of foot traffic. I avoid this area of Fredericksburg. Better food...More
