Trolley Tours of Fredericksburg - Nov and Dec 2022 

The downtown tour of old town Fredericksburg, Virginia, is our flagship tour; it's the one that started it all. Enjoy an entertaining and 

informative trip aboard the trolley. Learn about the many famous and interesting people who have been here, including those 

who called Fredericksburg home. Hear about events that have taken place since the city was established in 1728.

During his formative years, George Washington lived just across the Rappahannock River, a "stones throw" from the city where he

 attended school and church. George's mother, sister and brother had homes in Fredericksburg, which are open to the public for tours.

See and hear about the monuments to Thomas Jefferson, who in 1777 gathered with his colleagues in Fredericksburg and drafted the 

Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, a document so powerful that it ultimately led to the religious freedoms in the first amendment 

of the Constitution of the United States.

During your stay, visit the museum and memorial library of our fifth president, James Monroe, who lived and worked in the city as a 

prominent attorney before entering politics and eventually being elected President.  In the 1860's, four major battles of the Civil War 

were fought within 15 miles of the city of Fredericksburg. In 1862, the Battle of Fredericksburg was fought in and around the downtown

 historic district. You will have a chance to view many of the homes, churches and buildings used by both Confederate and Union 

fighting forces during these battles, many of which still bare the scars of the Civil War.

After your tour, you will have a better idea of where you want to visit, including shops, restaurants, and living history museums such

 as Dr. Hugh Mercer's Apothecary Shop, Kenmore Plantation and many more.

With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography.
