Welcome to the Fredericksburg Region – the pride of the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Composed of the City of Fredericksburg and the counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania and Stafford, this area continues to ride a wave of growth that places it among America’s most affluent, high-energy communities.
If you’re scouting business locations, you’ll find no better spot than the Fredericksburg Region.
We straddle the East Coast’s primary transportation artery, Interstate 95, at exactly the midpoint between Washington, D.C. and Richmond, Virginia. Our primary schools and institutions of higher learning rank second-to-none. We offer highly educated, sophisticated workers that are driven to succeed. The region is a magnet for defense and government contractors, high-tech startups and cutting-edge healthcare providers.
Our Chamber works hard to help build a healthy business climate. We had tremendous success in 2012 – arranging meetings between our members and elected officials, boosting our membership, and hosting educational events for area businesses. We look forward to even greater things this year.
If you appreciate history, the Fredericksburg Region is the place to be. George Washington grew up just across the river from the City of Fredericksburg. Two other Founding Fathers – James Madison and James Monroe – 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 boundless energy propels us to the future.
Entertainment options abound, whether you’re in the mood to tour a Colonial Era-home, visit a Civil War battlefield or simply enjoy an evening of fine dining.
Nowhere will you find a more generous, compassionate community than in the Fredericksburg Region. Our citizens donate their money, time and talents to help those in need and improve the area’s quality of life.
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.
