Colonial Williamsburg Homeschool Day

Friday, November 7, 2008

We took a field trip this week to Colonial Williamsburg and had a great day. I love it up there in the fall. It is just so beautiful. We were able to do some of our favorite things. We stopped in the bakery for ginger cakes and hot apple cider, we wandered the gardens and maze at the Governor's Palace, played with hand made colonial toys, and, of course, visited the book store and candy shop. Unfortunately we didn't have time to tour all of the buildings we had hoped to see. We were on a limited time schedule, but there's always next time. We'll be heading back when the holiday decorations are up.

If you've never been, Colonial Williamsburg, in my opinion, is one of the very best field trips you can take. It is a don't miss! The authentic characters and setting allow you to step back into history. You can even rent period costumes for kids during your visit, take a carriage ride, and witness re-enactments of actual events. It's magical, in a much different way than Disney World.

We Love Williamsburg. We were there in September with our Classical Conversations group. I did not know that you could rent the period costumes. Thanks for the info.
