One of my favorite places to visit this time of year is Colonial Williamsburg. Visiting this historic town with all of the fall colors is a feast for the senses. Enjoy the beautiful scenery, sip on some warm cider, and listen to the sounds of the Fifes and Drums.
There is something for everyone at Colonial Williamsburg. They have a special events section on their website www.history.org. Currently, Colonial Williamsburg offers a Tavern Ghost Walk. Use the special events section to plan your visit. Also check out their special offers page. There are military and senior discounts. A current offer is Pay for One Day, Get the Rest of the Year Free. All guests 50 or older can purchase a Single-day Ticket that grants admission for the remainder of the year.
Offer valid until Oct 31, 2014. Colonial Williamsburg also offers a good neighbor discount. If you plan to visit more than once, watch for specials on their passes. I bought our passes last year on a buy one get one free promotion.
Some of my favorite stops are the gardens and listening to the Fifes and Drums. If it is chilly outside, I enjoy the Brunswick Stew at Chowings Tavern. Campbell’s Tavern is offering a holiday tea. You can make reservations for any of the restaurants online.
Colonial Williamsburg is an easy drive from South Hampton Roads. Plan to make it a fall destination.
