In the eve of our country’s celebration of American Independence, spend the weekend in the historically rich location of Williamsburg, VA. There is something for the whole family to commemorate this holiday including American Revolution reenactments, 18th century game demonstrations, and of course some of the best amusement parks. Don’t forget to book your Fourth of July Weekend activities to these attractions:
There is no place better to pay homage to the founders of America than at the Jamestown Settlement. In honor of the 235th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the Liberty Celebration at the Yorktown Victory Center will commence July 2-4. From 9:00 am- 6:00 pm, visitors will have the opportunity to interact with Revolutionary War actors, observe artillery drills, watch military exercises, and even get a piece of real American apple pie.
Take advantage of the savings available when purchasing passes to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA. The Summer Bounce pass will grant you access to both these parks as well as Colonial Williamsburg. Don’t settle with one when you have the opportunity to ride world-class roller coasters, shoot down sky-high water slides, and experience American history come to life; all for one low price.
This year, Colonial Williamsburg is planning a memorable occasion for America’s birthday on July 4th. Costumed Revolutionary War heroes will read through the entire Declaration of Independence on the courthouse steps. Following a chorus of fifes, drums, and joyous shouts, fireworks will light the sky, wishing America the happiest of birthdays.
