The Dining Traveler Visits Ladyburg

For the record, I not only ate during my weekend trip to Fredericksburg but got to indulge in a few unique experiences.  Fredericksburg is a gem for those who enjoy military and civil war history.  Years ago, I spent several afternoons at the Chancellorsville Battlefield as a young Marine Lieutenant and still recall all the history lessons I learned during my tours.  The Fredericksburg Battlefield Visitor Center provides tours and maps for lesser known battlefields.  National Park Service also provides a comprehensive list and maps. If a comprehensive battlefield tour is too much, I recommend the Fredericksburg downtown trolley.  The guide combines historical and architectural facts of the city, I left the tour loaded with new facts about the region.  Another unique experience was taking a soap making class at Lady Burg Soaps. Lady Burg is a family owned affair with husband, wife, and their children running the shop. There, we learned to make salt scrubs from scratch and had a tour of the shop.  It was a busy Saturday afternoon with locals stocking up on their favorite bath bombs or picking up ingredients to make their homemade concoctions.
