Day One:

Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop, with real live leeches and amputation demonstrations.

Rising Sun Tavern, where you will be greeted as if you stepped of a stagecoach in the 18th century and learn you only have to bathe during the months of July and August.

Central Park Fun Land with go karts, mini-golf, bumper boats, laser tag and more.

Day Two:

Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center where young and old will learn of the sacrifices made during the American Civil War.

Riverside Center's children's Lunch 'n' Show Theater runs every Saturday afternoon at 1 pm. They offer popular musical renditions of children's stories.

A stop at Carl's is a must for frozen custard.

Other options: Canoe trip along the Rappahannock River and the Fredericksburg Branch of the Children's Museum of Richmond. 

Or, pick up your "Kids' Walking Map of Historic Downtown Fredericksburg" at the Visitor Center.  The map was created by kids for kids as a result of a "Mapping History" workshop.  At each site, successfully locate items and collect the stamp.  Sites include the Rising Sun Tavern, Mary Washington House, James Monroe Museum, Kenmore Plantation and Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop.
