New this week

in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and Stafford, VA

By Jenny Sites December 16, 2021


We have exciting news - a NEW Lending Library has been installed at @TheCarWash in Central Park!  Stop by to get your car washed and let your kiddos pick a free book from the library!  Have books you're finished with? You can leave them in the lending library for other families!

There are so many fun things going on in the area between now and the end of the year.  Find Santa, light shows, holiday crafts, recipes and movie schedules in our Winter & Holiday Family Fun Guide.  Check out great local businesses in our Local Shopping guide and find out how to give back in our Holiday Giving Guide!


Do you and your family enjoy driving around looking at Holiday Lights and decorations? Our family does!  Here is this year's "Holiday Lights and Decor Tour".  This year we've included a MAP to make it easier, plus a link to add your house to the tour!

  • You can find Elf printables, letters to Santa, and a return letter from Santa HERE.   If your elf forgot to move... we even have an excuse note ;)

The 12 Day of Giveaways is back this year! You can enter here to win.
December 17th is the last day to enter!
