We’ve rounded up ten great ideas for date night in Fredericksburg. So call the babysitter, find something clean to wear, and get ready for some fun!


Top Ten Fall Date Night Ideas 2016


1)      Go on a Ghost Tour- Did you know that Fredericksburg is full of haunted places? This is the perfect time of year to book a ghost tour and check them out! It’s a date night you’ll never forget.


2)      Snuggle up to an outdoor movie- “Movies In The Park” is BACK! We’re so excited to announce that Hurkamp Park will be showing back-to-back Halloween movies, on Oct 22nd. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown will be shown at 6:30 pm and Hotel Transylvania at 7:00! Grab a picnic dinner, a thermos of hot cider, your loved one, and enjoy.


3)      Pick up a hot beverage and check out the scarecrows- This year, downtown is hosting  “The Scarecrows Are Coming” contest from October 8 – 31st. Over 30 downtown businesses will be decorating scarecrows and window displays in hopes of winning a sweet trophy, a spot in Fred Parent Magazine, and $200. We can’t wait to see what creative, spooky, and hilarious scarecrows appear this year.


4)      Sweat – Go for a run together on one of Fredericksburg’s many trails or take a class together at a local gym. Nothing gets the blood pumping better than a good old fashioned workout!


5)      Enjoy a tasting- There are four craft breweries in Fredericksburg (Spencer Devon Brewing, Red Dragon Brewery, Adventure Brewing South, and Maltese Brewing). Stop in for a leisurely flight and enjoy each other’s company over a few local brews.


6)      Create somethingPonshop, Liberty Towne Arts, and When Pigs Fly all hold art classes and we’re not just talking about painting. You can take classes on blacksmithing, woodworking, pallet art, decorating skateboards, and more.


7)      Listen to local live music- There are several opportunities to enjoy live music here in Fredericksburg. Check out Fredericksburg Today’s website for weekly updates.


8)      Make it a date weekend- Go big or go home, right? Why not stay at one of The ‘Burg’s Bed and Breakfasts and be a tourist for the weekend? Date night shouldn't be limited to just one night.


9)     Peep some leaves - You know you wait all year for the leaves to change color. There's just something so nostalgic and downright magical about it. So go ahead and indulge yourselves. Drive up to Shenandoah National Park and take in the season in its full glory. 


10)   Stay home- You read that right. Sometimes the best dates are the ones where you drop the kids off with the sitter and chill out at home.

Pouches' Community Corner

Pouches Visits the Past


If Pouches' experience at History Camp is any indication, your son or daughter will enjoy joining Washington Heritage Museums and the George Washington Foundation for History Camp in Fredericksburg. The week-long day camp will be held June 25-29, from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day.

Young historians discover American history with hands-on experiences as they walk in the footsteps where the history of Fredericksburg, and a budding America, was created. The camp complements the history taught in classrooms with activities such as soap making, code breaking, colonial crafts, penmanship and much more.
