Life in Fredericksburg

Welcome to FredericksburgDowntown Caroline St.

Our city offers the amenities of a big city but the charm of a small town.

Fredericksburg is located just one hour south of Washington, DC, our nation’s capital and 45 minutes north of Richmond, our state capital. A large portion of our residents commute to the DC area on VRE but we are also home to several major companies.

Our city runs along the Rappahannock River, offering many historic sites and numerous residential areas. With its unique atmosphere of history, thousands of visitors can spend a day to a week taking in the sites but to many of us Fredericksburg is our home.
