Spa Day

Have you ever heard someone say they need a vacation from their vacation? If that’s you, here is a staycation idea that will have you feeling rested and refreshed. Dedicate your day to TCL and really indulge in self-care by booking an appointment at a local spa. A few around the area are Tulip Salon & Spa, Royal Spa LLC, and Peaceful Oasis Day Spa. Unwind while helping our local economy. 

Food Tour

Is there a restaurant you have always wanted to try? Take the day to try new food. Start with breakfast and eat your way around town by trying different restaurants’ most famous meal or something you have always wanted to try. Add a fun twist to the day by choosing a theme like desserts, appetizers, or tacos. Try the same dish at different restaurants and determine which has the best!

Pack Your Bags

Pack your bags and play tourist by staying at an Airbnb or Bed and Breakfast. Seeing Fredericksburg in a new way from another part of town is another great way to feel like you have left your city without the travel. If you like the idea of staying in a bed and breakfast, try the Kenmore Inn, The 1890 Caroline House, or Stevenson Ridge.
