Day 8: Williamsburg, VA

Experience life in the 18th century at America’s largest outdoor history museum. Colonial Williamsburg was the center of government education and culture in Colonial Virginia for most of the 18th century.  The city exhibits dozens of authentic or re-created colonial houses and relating to American Revolutionary War. The main buildings include Raleigh Tavern, the Capitol, the Governor’s Palace among others. On the far side of Duke of Gloucester Street from the Capitol is America's second oldest college, the College of William & Mary. Chartered in 1697 by King William and Queen Mary, W+M has educated US Presidents like Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, and John Tyler as well as 16 signers of the Declaration of independence and countless indian youth in attempts to enlighten our wild young democracy.   This is a rare opportunity to experience history within a city that remains virtually unchanged from the time history occurred. We will take advantage of programs that have been specially designed by Colonial Williamsburg's education department.

To make the most of your time at Colonial Williamsburg you will always be accompanied by a costumed Licensed Guide of Williamsburg to inspire you through language, games, anecdotes and knowledge of where to find the best colonial chocolate. Lunch and dinner on own. We finish our day with another exciting Colonial Williamsburg evening program. Overnight in Williamsburg.  (B).
