Make This Your Best Family Travel Trip Ever: Williamsburg, Virginia

For many parents, planning the perfect family vacation means trying to juggle just the right amount of fun with some stealth learning thrown in for good measure. Also, if it’s to be a true “family” vacation, it’s nice if there’s something for Mom and Dad too.

There is no doubt that it can be a daunting task finding that next great destination. So, if you’re feeling frustrated, fret no more my friends. Your best trip ever lies in historic Williamsburg, Virginia.

Be part of the story in Colonial Williamsburg. Interact with people from the 18th century and immerse yourself in the life of America’s earliest colonists.

Visit Historic Jamestowne and walk the very ground America’s first settlers did in 1607. Listen as archeologists and guides share their life’s passion with you and get lost in the story of some famous Americans, most notably Pochahontas.

Visit the Jamestown Settlement Museum and learn how three major cultures converged in the early 17th century to help shape the United States as we know it today. Inside boasts incredible dioramas and artifacts of life from Indian, African and English people, while outside you can stroll through living history that includes an Indian Encampment, a recreation of Jamestown and a recreation of the first three boats to carry settlers to America.

While you’re there, you won’t want to miss Yorktown Victory Center which offers a glimpse of America during the Revolution.

Oh Mama, you done good. Your kids have had so much fun in Williamsburg, they barely noticed they were learning! Time to head over to Busch Gardens before they catch onto you. Lots to do for kids big and small at this clean, friendly theme park.

Finally, you want good food and you’re going to find it in the Historic Triangle. From delicious sandwiches at The Cheese Shop in Merchants Square to scrumptious surf and turf selections at Riverwalk Restaurant in Yorktown to the many taverns in Colonial Williamsburg, you definitely won’t go hungry.

So, what are you waiting for? Summer holidays are just around the corner. Start planning your best trip ever to Williamsburg, Virginia.
