A free, family-friendly “Around the Town” service that offers participants a snapshot of the wonders of downtown Fredericksburg is returning this summer. The City of Fredericksburg is bringing back our free shuttle service for locals and tourists alike. It will transport visitors around downtown on Friday and Saturday evenings between May 31 and August 31 between 5:00pm - 9:00pm.

The City will contract with Trolley Tours of Fredericksburg on the service, which will include a roughly 15-minute loop of downtown and stop at four carefully selected locations. The Trolley Tours guides will have handy information for riders upon request about the downtown and its rich history and many amenities.
