  Rappahannock River
by chewy3326

The most scenic natural area near Fredericksburg is undoubtedly the Rappahannock River, a 150+ miles long waterway stretching from Shenandoah National Park to the Chesapeake Bay. The Rappahannock River holds the distinction of being the longest undammed, free-flowing river on the United States' Eastern Seaboard. The river also creates the northern and eastern boundaries of the city of Fredericksburg; it is easy to walk down to the river, where the views are always spectacular.

Directions: Northern boundary of the city.
