Celebrate of Fredericksburg, is a new Del Webb property that promises to offer an amenity-rich lifestyle for active adults aged 55 and better. Construction on this beautiful gated community began in 2008. Upon completion, the community will have 1,100 single-family homes and already includes a 30,800 square-foot clubhouse with many popular amenities, including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis and bocce ball courts, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
Fredericksburg's prime location is equidistant from both Washington D.C. and Richmond. This historic area is known for its many Civil War battlefields and historic districts, such as Old Town Fredericksburg. However, the area is a blend of the old and new, with plenty of modern-day shopping, dining and recreational attractions.

The clubhouse includes a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, indoor walking track, a business center, ballroom, community kitchen, fireside library, and meeting rooms. There will also be tennis and bocce ball courts, as well as walking and biking trails.
