Fredericksburg sits just 50 due south of Washington, D.C. and has a population of about 20,000. Noted for its historical importance during the formation of our country as well as during the Civil War, the city sports a 40 square block historical downtown area.
Downtown Fredericksburg is mostly walkable, but most renters will be car dependent due to the spread-out nature of the city. Fredericksburg Regional Transit (aka: FRED) runs the public bus system. The bus only runs at full service Monday - Friday, with limited night time service.
