I get a kick out of the "fake downtowns" erecting all throughout America these days! The new one in Fredericksburg was a perfect spot for our Father's day activities. Italian food, shops galore, fountains for pennies, and open sidewalks for strolling.

Love this!

Calamari, our favorite appetizer.

Our day ended with a tasting at the vineyard.

And sparklers to celebrate!
