Jamestown Settlement
Williamsburg, Virginia is known for its family-friendly atmosphere and historical attractions. It is fun throughout the whole year, but the most beautiful time to visit would be in August. The leaves are just beginning to change and the weather is starting to cool off. One of the most popular attractions in this area would be the Jamestown Settlement. You will be able to explore replicas of the ships that brought the English colonists to Virginia. There are a ton of different interactive re-creations of life from the 1600s. You will be able to try on some armor and play games that were popular in the 17th century. It will be like you are being transported back in time. All of these interactive activities and explorations will make it feel like you are traveling back in time. There is a gift shop on-site, so you will be able to have a souvenir from this enjoyable, family-friendly adventure.

Colonial Williamsburg
Take a step back in time and visit Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia where the atmosphere of the 18th century still lives. People play their parts so well, that the guests actually think that they are the people they are representing. With so many sights to take in, and so much history to learn, it’s nearly impossible to take it all in in just one day. This is why they made the 1-day pass for quick tours, the 3-day pass for a moderate tour, and a 7-day pass for an immense tour that will show guests the trades of blacksmithing, tailoring, shoe making, and many more skills of the trade. There are many unique and fun places to visit, and the best part is that in the over 300-acre town, everything is either genuinely made from the 1700s, or is made to look like it did way back then. However, there is so much to see that even the 7-day pass may not have you seeing everything. So to give everyone a taste of what to expect, here’s a small list of places they have to visit: The Rockefeller's Bassett Hall, Governor's Palace, Great Hopes Plantation, The Capitol, Public Hospital, and so many more great places. Didn’t want to pamper the audience with so many places, but there are over 50 massive exhibits to see and so many great actors to meet. This will be a blast for the whole family, eat at the on-site restaurant, and get to the gift shop to buy everything needed to make a proper memory of the time spent there.
