I was doing research so in addition to having a fun time, I was able to get all kinds of information I needed. The reenactors are incredible fonts of information.

I always have loved Colonial Williamsburg. It is so nice to walk around with no worries of cars but maybe horse deposits. There are buildings to visit without paying the tour fees but you would miss some interesting sight of colonial life.

We had a fantastic time! The historical interpreters were very friendly, and very willing to share their knowledge! We especially enjoyed the carriage ride through town, touring the governor's mansion and sampling the 18th century inspired dishes at the King's Arms Tavern.

We will be coming to Williamsburg with a 7 year old and 41/2 year old both boys. What are the best things to do with them. I know they would love to see a battle. Also is there a restaurant that they would enjoy? How far in advance do I make reservations for events. Thank you
