Usually, like many people across the United States, I have spent Thanksgiving with family.  Either I have been at home or at my parent's house.  This year due to a slight change in family plans, I decided to try something totally different.  On a whim, I planned a road trip to Niagara Falls.  I had never visited Canada or the Niagara Falls region.  Many people thought it was not a good idea to travel to a cold climate with kids for a short trip.  On the contrary, we ended up having a fantastic time.  No crowds, no traffic on the route we took and great accommodations at an affordable rate.

Buffalo, New York. It's cold up there near the Canadian line, the kind of place where houses often have sun porches to catch what heat they can get in the blustery winters. In the 1940s, most families would content themselves filling it with a couch, some houseplants, and a radio. In the Lewin household, the sun porch was filled with gym mats and weights.

Today, Fredericksburg ponders the building of a single downtown hotel, but during the 19th century, Fredericksburg was known as a town of hotels.

Some were large and elegant. Some catered to specific clienteles. All left their mark on Fredericksburg’s history.

Most people traveling from Washington to points south stopped over in Fredericksburg. So did those who were on their way to the Virginia springs.
