Colonial Williamsburg

You don’t need a DeLorean to travel back in time! All it takes is a short carriage ride into Colonial Williamsburg to go back to the time of the American Revolution. Time period dress, dirt roads, and brick buildings all surround you while walking down main street.

This is where the founding fathers overthrew the British government and started the first assembly of elected representatives. Many of the laws that we have today were thought about and discussed in this city. How amazing is that?! To stand in a place like this, where such a significant piece of American history happened, is inspiring.

Take a moment to explore the historic buildings in Williamsburg; American patriotism is deep in every brick and every beam. At Colonial Williamsburg you can see the flags waving in the breeze, taste the period food, hear discussions about the Constitution, and march to authentic colonial snare drums. There is a sense of pride for our country felt throughout the city when you walk through the Governor’s Mansion and the House of Burgesses.

When you go, be sure to take a moment to appreciate the sights around you and feel the history that took place. Appreciate the great country we live in, and the sacrifice that took place before we became a nation.
