Nice winery close by the Powhatan resort. It offers a tour, tasting, and a restaurant on site, as well as a gift shop. Very nice for lunch.

Busch Gardens

Attraction

Quote:
Busch Gardens is part culture, part amusement park. 4 countries represented - Italy, England, Germany and Ireland. Plenty of food and shops mixed in with rides. You can also do beer tasting and see the Budweiser clydesdales. If your kids are younger and might not be into culture yet, you may want to visit Water Country - a great water park also owned by Annheiser Busch. Water rides for all ages.
