Fredericksburg  is the ultimate bed-and-breakfast town. In fact, there are hundreds of options available in the area, ranging from rustic ranch cabins to luxurious posh chateaus to a historic railroad sleeper car.
With such a wide selection, many travelers opt to begin their search by providing their particular lodging desires to a B&B locator service, such as First Class Bed & Breakfast Reservation Service (909 E. Main St., 888/991-6749, www.fredericksburg-lodging.com ) or Be My Guest Bed & Breakfast Lodging Service (110 N. Milam St., 830/997-7227).
There’s even a locator service specifically dedicated to cutting through the infinite possibilities by focusing on the original concept: Fredericksburg Traditional Bed & Breakfast Inns (800/494-4678, www.fredericksburgtrad.com ).
Of course, not everyone visiting Fredericksburg  is required to stay at a B&B. For a dependable and quilt-free evening, book a room at La Quinta Inn & Suites (1465 E. Main St., 800/531-5900, www.lq.com , $114 d). The hotel features free Internet access, a fitness center, outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, and a free continental breakfast.
