Family Adventure and Travel Destination: Colonial Williamsburg
Colonial Williamsburg is like no other when you want to take the kids on an educational travel destination adventure that focuses on our nation’s history. It’s even better when you take the kids during the holidays like Halloween, Christmas and Independence Day.
I remember going there as a kid and now it’s even bigger with more attractions.
Visit a real colonial village, learn about what day to day life was like, watch and participate in costume’d Fife and Drum Corps, be a spy, make bricks, go on archeological digs, and experience what it was like in 1775 at the very beginning of the American revolution.
Colonial Halloweens are always a fun way to spend time with kids on one of their favorite holidays. Apple cider, pumpkins, ghost tours, home-made doughnuts. They can range from cute and sweet to all out spooky and there’s something for every kid at every age. And since there’s probably no more place more Colonial America than Williamburg, this is the place to be on Halloween. For spooky fun check out these ghost tours:
