A July 2003 trip
to Williamsburg by Tenia
Quote: Williamsburg is amazing location. Patriot Place was less than three minutes from Historic Williamsburg.
Toured Patriots' Place--the two sections on both sides of the Ramada. They actually have three different locations throughout Williamsburg. The duck crossing signs were cute (as were the ducks). Pool wasn't large but liked all the pool toys that were there. The rooms were like townhouses for set up.
You would need a couple of days to do everything at Historic Williamsburg with all the enactments always going on. We did a tour by horse and carriage around the 88 buildings, which cover over 3 miles. The guide was informative and stayed in character the entire time. My girls (8, 7, 5) were a bit confused with some of the old words but got in the spirit. It's a living museum like Louisburg in Cape Breton. Even kids playing games in costume.
Close by there was Water Country (a major water park) and Busch Gardens (7 European countries represented). This park has won all sorts of awards. Norfork was 20 miles away(major naval base, lots more culture, and a zoo). And Viginia Beach was 40 miles.
