Northern Virginia Queens Council Red Hat Hoot Meet-Up 06/17/23 at 12:30pm

June 17 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm PDT


Northern Virginia Queens Council
Red Hat Hoot – June 17
Fredericksburg, VA

12:30 p.m – Meet & Greet at Visitors Center
706 Caroline Street, Fredericksburg, VA

A hoot is an opportunity to meet & greet other
Red Hatters, perhaps snap a few pix, & then choose your
own things to do with your friends – so, except for the
“Meet-Up” the Queens’ Council has no other activities planned.

Fredericksburg is an ideal Hoot location – the Rail Station, Trolley
Tour departure site at the Visitor Center, Historic Buildings, Museums,
Boutique Shopping & Restaurants are all within a few block radius of
the Visitor Center

The Fredericksburg Trolley Tour is 75 minute tour of the historic area
& is the perfect way to learn lots about the town’s history & note the
sites that you might want to visit after the tour. Tour cost is $25 per
person (($22 for groups of 15 or more), departs from Visitor Center at
11 a.m., 1 p.m. & 3 p.m. daily. You board the trolley at the Visitor Center
& depart it at the Visitor Center. You cannot get off or on the trolley
during the tour. The trolley is an open car w/wooden seats & w/no air
conditioning or fans. It accommodates up to 34 people, has a lift for
those who cannot climb steps & room for 2 wheel chairs. Toilets are
available at the Visitor Center, not on trolley. Purchase tickets on line,
via phone (540-898-0737) or at Visitor Center. (The 12:30 p.m. Meet &
Greet fits nicely between the 11 a.m. & 1 p.m. Trolley Tours.)

The Visitor Center is in the heart of the old town. It’s about two blocks
from the rail station, two blocks from inexpensive parking at the corner of
Sophia Street and Wolfe Street (3 Hours for $2 plus $1 for each additional
hour) and the shops, restaurants, and historic sites surround it. we suggest
finding a city map on your smart phone or pick up one at the Visitor Center.

Want to spend the weekend in Fredericksburg? Two lovely Bed and
Breakfasts & a Hotel are in this area also. And, the new bridge over the
Rappahannock River is only a couple of blocks away – it’s a lovely place
to view the river and see where George Washington is reported to
have tossed his silver dollar across.

No RSVPs needed, just come out and join in.
