Some of the best things to do in Fredericksburg revolve around the 40-block downtown Historic District. Start out at the Visitor Center to orient yourself, and make your way to the Mary Washington House, the Kenmore (the home of George Washington’s sister), the Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop, and the Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center. Speaking of battlefields, Fredericksburg is known as home to some of the most important staging grounds for battles of the Civil War. The four fields -- Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness, and Spotsylvania -- are all excellent destinations for travelers interested in history. As far as modern-era things to do, be sure to check out the A. Smith Bowman Distillery, a family-owned distillery that focuses on spirits.
