      When planning your summer vacation this year, don’t forget about Williamsburg, Virginia. Never heard of it? Well, Williamsburg is where it all started…all of America anyway. John Smith and his crew established the first permanent colony in the New World there. It was also the sight of a major battle during the Revolutionary War, and is know the site of a many historical museums, and galleries, as well as live interpretations of life in the late 1700’s. Williamsburg also houses huge botanical gardens, a European-themed park, and is home to Water Country, USA, which contains 43 acres of pools and other water adventures.

      No matter what your interests, there is something for you in Williamsburg , and not only for you, but for the kids as well. When we visited Williamsburg VA this summer, my


      family and I stayed at the Embassy Suites on Mooretown Road. The stay was wonderful. Embassy Suites is central to all the activities we wanted to attend in Williamsburg, and the hotel itself was exquisite. The rooms were large, the staff friendly, and the food delicious. At only $200 a night, it was a great place to stay.

      During the days, we visited some of the gardens restored by historians and horticulturists. The colors of the flowers in early summer were riotous, and even the kids enjoyed the visit. If you are a plant-lover, or even if you are not, this is surely one stop you will not want to miss during your stay.

      We also visited R. Charlton’s Coffeehouse on Duke of Gloucester Street. The coffeehouse is a reconstructed exhibit that was originally ...


      • a coffeehouse built by a wigmaker named Richard Charlton. This coffeehouse was popular in the late 1700’s as a site to discuss business and talk politics.

        Another great feature of Williamsburg is the live plays that occur everywhere-on the steps of the Coffeehouse, on the street, and in the Historic Area. Experience history as you never have before with a front row view of “The Collapse of Royal Government: and “Building a Nation.”

        In addition to the plays that occur several times a day, you will notice as you walk around the town various characters-Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and the like. These interpreters, decked in the garb of late 18th century attire, have studied history, and in particular, their characters, and are available to talk to whenever you wish.

        Williamsburg doesn’t just cater to the

        history fanatics, though. Williamsburg VA is also site to a European-themed park with 350 acres of fun rides, children’s attractions, animal shows, and live entertainment.

        Williamsburg is also home to Water Country, USA, a huge water park that boasts not only a 9,000 square foot pool, but also a 700 foot lazy river, and 43 acres of attractions such as water rides and children’s play areas. A 20 minute show is highlighted several times a day, in which water acrobats perform feats of courage-high-diving, tumbling, and trampoline acts to name a few.

        Williamsburg is a great place to vacation, expecially if you enjoy history, and would like to visit where it all started. Even if you don’t, the gardens and amusement parks will capture your attention and make Williamsburg, VA, a place you will never forget.
