Colonial Williamsburg Virginia - One of the best known places to visit for a hands-on approach to how life was in the earliest days of our Nation, a visit to Colonial Williamsburg is a must. A day trip from Washington DC to Williamsburg can be done in a day, but to truly experience the different aspects of Colonial Williamsburg, perhaps making an overnight stop here to also have time to visit the more modern attractions of Busch Gardens and Water Country USA might make sense. Just a thought.
