Second visit needed to Colonial Williamsburg

Earlier this year, Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia was on our itinerary as we traveled to the Atlantic Coast from Mississippi.

For some reason, I had pictured something different. 

But that is neither here nor there. Our visit in early June was eye-opening in that I was able to witness the village that held so much history.

Early on, we toured the Regional Visitor’s Center and got a head’s up from a former teacher and current docent on the best way to visit the area.

We spent a short while touring the center and learning about the history.

The day’s visit, or at least a visit to Chowning’s Tavern, was captured in an earlier post. There are numerous other taverns available.

We toured part of the city riding the shuttle bus, and walked up and down the main street learning about the religious preferences of our founding fathers while across the street, wifey became interested on gardening during that era.

As the day heated up, our interest diminished and we headed out after about a four-hour visit.

We plan to return, at a cooler time, and better prepared to experience more of the historic avenues that are available.
