We have been enjoying williamsburg from our first trip, 36 years ago. We have seen the many changes from then until now. It has been a great experience. We would go when we could afford it. Now we visit at least twice per year. We now take our 2 sons families sometimes. This time we are taking our grandson for 10 days and his parents and sisters will join us for 4 days. We always enjoy ourselves

Going back in time was great. The village reminded me of my grandparents' home back in the dr. That's how they lived in the 20th century! It brought back wonderful memories and i was able to show the kids how their mommy grew up. Their dad, being german, just made fun of me the whole time. It was great!
