For Kids

If you’re visiting with little ones in tow, we’ve got them covered. Many of our parks and museums have special events the younger visitors would enjoy so be sure and check calendars. Also, don’t forget Main Street shopping! We have an old-fashioned five and dime, the adeptly named Fitz and Hollerin toy store, and plenty of ice cream, yogurt and other kid-friendly eateries. And to keep those little hands busy, the Fredericksburg area also has seasonal pick-your-own orchards and the popular Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm at Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site near Stonewall.
