Have a Colonial Halloween in Williamsburg, Virginia
This was one of my favorite places to go as a kid. It’s a great place to learn about US history and what it was like to live day to day in the colonial times. There’s also something very wonderful about an authentic colonial Halloween, complete with cinnamon doughnuts, apple cider and ye olde Halloween games and activities. Take the family on an adventure to Williamsburg and you won’t be disappointed. Go here to read more about spending Halloween in Colonial Williamsburg
