We are planning a short trip to Williamsburg (2-3 days) with our 2 teenage children. What should we not miss? Thanks!
Colonial Williamsburg and Historic Jamestowne are Must See.
Do not simply do a "drive by" visit.
Purchase the Admission Tickets for both sites.
Do you have your dates for your visit? That would help determine what activities are available for you. Also, what are the interests of your teens. My teen sons do NOT enjoy things like colonial dancing (tried that) but love military performances and demonstrations and the like.
We will be there for spring break the week after Easter.
We were in Jamestown two days ago and were lucky to attend a presentation by a park ranger dressed as a person of the 1650s. It was fascinating. Jamestown has lots of interesting activities to make history come alive.
Williamsburg of course is all about history. Yesterday we went into all the craftsmen’s shops. The people demonstrating the craft are dressed in period costume and interact with those watching. For example, the wig maker explained the origin of the term “big wig” and the weaver explained the apprenticeship program.
