A weekend getaway is always a good idea. So when a dear friend was celebrating a birthday in Williamsburg, Virginia, Pete and I were ready for an adventure. Fortunately for us, the leaves were turning and in full fall splendor. We took a day to explore Colonial Williamsburg and treated ourselves to some American Revolution history. This is where I wish I would have paid more attention to my American History classes. What a treat to see to townsfolk of Williamsburg in full colonial period clothes and mindset. The 18th century was truly fascinating. We ate lunch at Kings Arms Tavern and enjoyed hot spiced cider and buttered rum by candlelight. We stayed at Kings Mill Resort (right on the James River) and it was absolutely breathtaking. There is so much to see and do. Colonial Williamsburg is run by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, a not-for-profit, privately funded, educational and cultural organization dedicated to the preservation, interpretation, and livelihood of the restored 18th-century Revolutionary capital of Virginia. Your entry fee helps support the foundation and pays for all of the tours. Well worth the entry price!
The people of Virginia are charming and happy to share their rich history with you. Dress warm. It’s chilly in Virginia this time of year. Thankfully, I have this warm camel colored coat and great scarf (details below). Have you been to Williamsburg? Leave me a comment about your visit.
Back to the grind. It’s Monday! xoxo- Tanya
