A Lovely Day Out
Member Name: Lynz16
Advantages: A great day out for all
Disadvantages: Not any
Williamsburg, or Colonial Williamsburg, is a living museum based on an old English colony. There are lots of activities to attend and things to see, as well as many performances and tours given throughout the day which are entertaining as well as educational. There are a large number of original shops, non chain, within the town center of colonial Williamsburg including an old style candy (sweetie) shop, a Christmas shop and a number of toy and clothing shops. There are also a number of shops based on the kind of shop that would have been available to the colonists that sell a range of unusual products such as spices, quills and candles.
Colonial Williamsburg is very good to attend for the July 4th firework display, it has a great display and a great atmosphere overall.
It is a quaint little town and a great, educational day out for the whole family.
Summary: A great day out for all!
