A visit to Colonial Williamsburg is a step back into time. Hundreds of participates in period dress contribute to a colonial community which comes alive. You meet Martha Washington, Patrick Henry and other recognizeable people of note, as well as silversmiths, wig makers, blacksmiths and common folk. You can attend a soiree at the minister's home or a slave sermon under the trees. There are demonstrations going on all around you all the time.
A meal in one of the colonial taverns is an experience in itself. A costumed waiter in full character takes your order and serves colonial style foods. We enjoy chicken and dumplings, meat pies and boiled cabbage, but buttermilk pie is not for us!
