Travel Tips for Fredericksburg
I love the history in this town.
But---do stop in at the Visitors Center first. They will give you loads of information..
The center is locateed at:
706 Caroline Street
Telephones: (540) 373-1776 or (800) 678-4748
There is a 14 minute audio visual presentation.
It's a good place to eat. The sides were pretty good. It was good, cheap, and family friendly. I recommend it, but it's not the high art of bbq. We ate at the one on Jefferson Davis Parkway. The one on Plank Road looks small from the road. The Virginia Pork sandwich was nice.
WASHINGTON AVENUE -HUGH MERCER STATUE
The land along Wsahington Avenue was open farmland belonging to the Lewis Plantation - Kenmore - up until 1889, when the land along what would become Washington Avenue was sold to the Fredericksburg Development Company. Along the new avenue, tracts were developed into lots and eventually 24 houses were built along the street with a center grass plot leading down to Mary Washington's grave. You can find out more about the individual homes on the website included. There are also a couple of monuments along the avenue to note: General Hugh Mercer stands out on center stage of Washington Avenue. He lived here in Fredericksburg - you can visit his apothecary shop - after coming to the New world as a result of being on the wrong side of the Battle of Culloden (Scotland). Mercer rose to become a general in the Revolutionary Army and was kille at the Battle of Princeton in 1777. His grandson was Hugh Weedon Mercer, a Confederate general in the Civil War.
At the north end of Washington Avenue, you can find a Monument to Thomas Jefferson and the idea of religous liberty. The monument was erected in 1932 in commemoration of the meeting - here in Fredericksburg, Jan 13, 1777 - where a committee headed by Jefferson drafted the Virginia Statue of Religous Freedom which was later added to the U.S. Constitution as the First Amendent - 'no man shall suffer on account of his religious opinions or beliefs.'
As part of our VT Weekend in Fredericksburg, some of our members travelled to Luray to visit the wonderful LURAY CAVERNS. Since its discovery in 1878, visitors by the millions have made Luray Caverns the most popular cave in the Eastern States of America.
Four million centuries in the making beneath Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, the Caverns are a "must see" Natural Landmark.
The "guided" tours are by headphones and program devices,which are given to you as you enter the caverns. Each area is numbered, so you just program your device to the number and you get an explanation of what you are seeing before you. You walk along well-lighted, paved walkways which lead you through cathedral sized rooms with ceilings 10 stories high. Enormous chambers are filled with towering stone columns, shimmering draperies and crystal-clear reflecting pools. Chambers are magnificently sculpted with countless stalactites and stalagmites. There is even the Great Stalacpipe Organ, which played a beautiful symphony while we were there.
Thinking that since the caves are underground, it would probably be cold, so I wore a warm velour jacket. Almost immediately, I had to take it off as it was quite warm. A constant 54 degrees ensure a comfortable visit.
The tour takes a little over an hour. I took my time to really enjoy the beauty of the Caverns. I took lots of pictures, as the lighting was very good,
The cost of admission is $23.00 adults and $21.00 for Senior adults. Open daily all year.
