Sightseeing
Twenty minutes away, the Rising Sun Tavern Museum provides a lively interpretation of late 18th-century Tavern life. Charles Washington, George Washington's youngest brother, built this landmark in the 1760's as his private residence. After being sold outside the Washington family, the building was leased as a tavern in 1792. Operating as a stopover for travelers for 35 years in the bustling town of Fredericksburg, it was a popular diversion for travelers and locals alike. Today, costumed guides entertain visitors as though they have just stepped off their coaches into the late 18th-century life. See how bygone visitors slept, ate, drank and lived. No alcohol is served here.

Just over 20 minutes from our home, this free museum is divided into 3 sections, before, during and after the war. They are not huge exhibits but a very interesting. They also have a movie that nicely shows a lot of the history of the battle.

About an hour and a half away from us, Monticello was Thomas Jefferson's home. Thomas Jefferson was not one of the most important statesmen in our history, he was also a great innovator. His personality is reflected in his home.

What's better than visiting a well-interpreted major Civil War battlefield? Visiting four of them! (Though not in the name, Chancellorsville National Battlefield and Wilderness National Battlefield are also part of the same park.) There is plenty here to hold the interest of the casual observer. One driving map shows easy-to-follow color-coded driving tours for each of the four sites. You can get out and walk the fields and trails firsthand, or simply read signs in each small parking area. Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville also both have excellent visitor centers. This is approximately 25 minutes away.
