One of them is the #3 ranked attraction according to a top travel site, even though I have told you about plenty of other places already. So don’t think you’ve seen it all.

At first glance, the name Rising Sun Tavern makes you think you’re going to be visiting a place that serves drinks. Yet this place has been closed down in terms of that type of business for quite some time. It’s a museum now, and it’s quite the interesting place to visit. It’s been around since the 18th century! The guides that show you around are dressed according to the times, and you’re going to really enjoy the show.
A Smith Bowman Distillery is a popular place for travelers in Fredericksburg, too. You might be used to paying for tours at breweries and distilleries, but the tour of this place is complimentary. Of course, there is a gift shop, and you might also want to take some product with you. According to reviews, there are some special events that are sometimes held at this distillery.
When can you say that you’ve been to an apothecary? You might want to stop by the Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop, which is located at 1020 Caroline Street. As you might have already guessed, this place is also housed in a building that was constructed during the 18th century. The guides are great at this place, too, and people say that kids especially love the apothecary shop.
Gari Melchers Home and Studio at Belmont is next. This studio and home museum is a great way to explore the art of a world-renowned local impressionist painter. He lived during the 19th and early 20th centuries. There is a gift shop located there, too, and so it’s time to get some souvenirs. The local treasure of a home is said to be quite lovely.
Can you believe all the different kinds of places that you get to visit in Fredericksburg? I mean, you’re going to be stopping by an apothecary. That’s just so cool, and then of course the other three places are just as nice. It’s time to plan out that vacation experience in Fredericksburg VA that you’ve been waiting for.
