Welcome to the Fredericksburg Region – the pride of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Made up of the City of Fredericksburg and the surrounding counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George and Caroline, this is one of America’s fastest-growing, most dynamic communities.
If you’re scouting locations for a business, you’ll find no better spot than the Fredericksburg Region.
We’re located on the East Coast’s primary transportation artery, Interstate 95, a mere 50 miles from Washington, D.C., and 50 miles from Richmond, Virginia.
We offer primary schools and institutions of higher learning that rank among the nation’s finest.
Our citizenry is made up of sophisticated, highly educated and flexible workers.
The region is a magnet for defense and government contractors, high-tech startups and cutting-edge healthcare providers.
If you appreciate history, you won’t find a more enjoyable spot than the Fredericksburg Region.
George Washington grew up a literal stone’s throw from the City of Fredericksburg. Two other Founding Fathers – both of whom also rose to the presidency – called this area home at some point.
America’s commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War has special resonance here, as the area was the bloody crossroads in that tragic saga.
We have great love and respect for our history even as a restless energy propels us to the future.
Entertainment options abound, whether you’re in the mood to explore one of our scenic waterways, visit a Civil War battlefield or simply enjoy an evening of fine dining.
The people of the Fredericksburg Region are kind-hearted and give generously of their time, talents and money to help those in need and to support a wide variety of worthy causes.
On behalf of the members and board of directors of the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce, thank you for coming to our community.
If you’re visiting, enjoy your stay. If you’re looking for a place to settle, please consider making this your home. As a Fredericksburg native, I can say without reservation that this truly is a wonderful place to live and work.
