We had to walk after our heavy and yummy lunch and what better place to do that than at Colonial Williamsburg which was one of the top tourist attractions in Virginia.

There was a guided tour you can join but we decided to walk around ourselves.

Colonial Williamsburg is all about the sights and sounds of the 18th century.

Experience life as it was in our nation’s yesterdays. Explore the homes and buildings where men like Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Patrick Henry inspired the fight for independence.
