Colonial Williamsburg, the top historic attraction in Williamsburg, gives you the chance to visit the world as it was in the 18th century before technology and the winning of the Revolutionary War changed the United States forever. At Colonial Williamsburg, you will see living history interpreters giving demonstrations of everyday chores and activities from that time period. With just the one day pass, you get access to Great Hopes Plantation, complimentary historic area shuttle service, admission to the Courthouse, and admission to a number of other exciting features the park offers. Your whole family is certain to love visiting this attraction.
Another top attraction that is not to be missed during your St. Patrick’s Day getaway is Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum. This museum offers over 300 exhibits that focus on the unusual and the downright bizarre. A 500 lb. gorilla composed entirely of nails, a genuine shrunken head, and a two headed calf are just a few of the strange sights that you can expect to see. No matter what you’ve seen in the past, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is certain to amaze you with what it has to offer!
What’s a special trip to Williamsburg without an evening of dinner and dancing? You’ll get both with the Spirit of Norfolk Dinner Cruise. This cruise gives you a candlelit dinner buffet of gourmet treats like roasted rosemary beef and wild Alaskan salmon while you sail down the Elizabeth River. As you drift, you will pass the Norfolk Naval Base where you can get a close look at the ships under an evening sky. Once dinner has finished and you’ve started on dessert, live entertainers will perform for you before you can dance to the music provided by one of the area’s talented DJs. This is certain to be a very special evening for everyone in your party.
