Off-Campus Dining: There are so many different places that you can eat around town. Quite a few are in immediate walking distance, and the others are in walking distance but a little farther. If you want a chain restaurant, there is an endless variety in Central Park. If you want something unique, downtown Fredericksburg has very many privately owned restaurants that are unique and tasty!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are quite a few little eateries downtown and central park basically has any food chain you're craving if you don't want campus food.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Fredericksburg has a large number of restaurants downtown.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Whether it's a late night McDonald's run for a quick snack or a sit-down, dress-up meal in historic Fredericksburg, there hasn't been a single off-campus meal I haven't disliked. There honestly is something for everyone, even the pickiest eaters.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not a lot of choices

Without a car, your options are Salad Creations, Giant, and Pancho Villa. So, in short, there is not much within a walking proximity. However, Fredericksburg as a whole has a lot of options from which to choose. Downtown, with its variety of bars and restaurants, is a great place to take someone out to eat, whether that someone is a date, parent, or friend. Everything within walking distance tends to be affordable if you have a 10-dollar bill on you. Downtown, you might need a little more money, but there aren't really any restaurants that are extremely expensive and luxurious in a small town like Fredericksburg. 

Students occasionally hang out or do their homework in the cafés downtown, while munching on something sweet or drinking coffee. Other than the cafés, there aren't many casual settings for students to hang out at that don't require a car. Most restaurants are located right downtown, which is a short drive or, more simply, a bus ride away. Fast food options tend to be scattered about Fredericksburg in various places, and then, a car is more mandatory.
