Christmas Vacation Update: Williamsburg, VA

Welcome to Colonial Williamsburg! recently I took a short trip to Williamsburg, Virginia. I apologize in advance for not having photos available at the time, due to the fact that I do not have a card reader for my camera handy.....however, I will move forward!

The area we visited was apart of the Colonial are of the town. This town is dedicated to keeping is history and culture alive. The area is a constant reminder of how life was during the Colonial time period (1600-1799) in the United States. This town consist of a cast of characters dressed in traditional uniforms dated back to English settlers from this time. Many of the buildings in this area are still standing that date back to the 1600's. I was also lucky enough to eat lunch at a traditional English pub and watch a reenactment of the beginning of the Revolutionary War.

There is also a interesting blog that I found that is used in conjunction with Colonial Williamsburg. Check out Jefferson's Blog if you get a chance. Once again I will have photos following my return home, I will also have photos from my trip to Washington D.C.....Arkansas bound in two days, ready to get back home, see everyone next year!

I have a brother who lives in Washington DC and my parents visited last year. They loved it and thought its one of the best attractions that they had seen, a great opportunity to learn about the history of America.

Absolutely, my only regret about my visit is that I did not have more time. Tons of history and a trip that every American should make.

If you want to take the history further, Williamsburg was a great visit as well. The reenactments of the Revolutionary War was very informative and provided a different outlook on our country's history.....worth the drive from DC for sure.
