The spring celebrity concert at University of Mary Washington is worth attending. Sir James Galway, Kingston Trio, etc.
did perform in the celebrity concert. The town is beautifully decorated for Christmas. In the Fall, roads are closed for pedestrians during the German Festival. A cute well-kept historical town.
A great place to visit if you are interested in history and the civil war. There are wine festivals and roads are blocked off for the Beer Fest in Fall.
The shops are quint and have some nice antiques. University of Mary Wshington has a beautiful campus.
