Fredericksburg is a historic town of roughly 28,000 on the Rappahannock river, about half-way between Washington DC and Richmond. At the heart of Fredericksburg is the quaint downtown area around Caroline St. which gives homage to the rich history of the city as an early trading port and the site of several civil war battles. There are many excellent restaurants and historic sites to visit.
Today Fredericksburg is a thriving university town, hosting Mary Washington University, Mary Washington Hospital, Spotsylvania Regional Medical Center, and large corporations, such as Geico, CVS, and Lidl. The Greater Fredericksburg Area reaches into parts of Spotsylvania and Stafford Counties and offers great shopping, including multiple Wal-Marts, Home Depots and Lowes’, as well as Central Park (as of 2004 the second-largest out-door Mall on the East Coast), and Spotsylvania Town Center.
The city is connected to Washington DC/Northern Virginia and Richmond via I-95, Amtrak, and the VRE commuter rail line, making it a favorite for commuters in both directions. Housing prices in the area are far below those in Northern Virginia and in 2018 the average home price in the region was around $300,000.
