Saturday, 7/4/2015
Location: Colonial Williamsburg
Few places throughout the nation offer a more patriotic, authentic view of our nation's past than Colonial Williamsburg, making it the perfect destination for a Fourth of July vacation.
Tuesday, 12/1/2015 - Saturday, 1/2/2016
Location: A Colonial Christmas
From the first 'American' Christmas celebration held by English colonists still sailing towards the new land in 1606 to a look at the average traditions of a 1780's Virginia farmer, A Colonial Christmas is an interesting glimpse into America's holiday history.

This was a very fun thing to do. I would have liked to see more colonial people walking around to make it even more realistic.
