Dear Williamsburg Visitors,
Now through February 15, Colonial Williamsburg is offering a behind-the-scenes look at how the historic village is brought to life! Colonial Williamsburg has invited their curators, conservators, archaeologists, and actors to give visitors a chance to hear the stories behind the artifacts, paintings, costumes and more. The behind-the scenes look focuses on four interactive experiences including the stories behind the artifacts, costume design, ancient ceramics, and tavern life. Don’t miss out on this fun event that lasts until February 15!
Speaking of Colonial Williamsburg, take the time to look at the visitor’s side of the fabulous historic village. After going behind-the-scenes you’ll see Colonial Williamsburg in a whole new light. The small village is an accurate replica of the 18th century city that witnessed the birth of America. Townspeople mill about the village in period costumes, soldiers fight in the Revolutionary War, and shop owners dispute politics throughout the city giving visitors a great representation of what it was like to live through a time of change and uncertainty. Get your kids into history by renting a colonial costume during your stay or immerse yourself in the village by taking the time to learn a trade from the bricklayer or the blacksmith. Colonial Williamsburg is full of endless opportunities so check it out on your next vacation! For more information about Colonial Williamsburg, visit this link.
After a trip back in time head to the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Museum to see the weird. The museum is filled with more than 350 exhibits of oddities that will fascinate and astound visitors for hours including a 500 pound gorilla made entirely of nails, a 1,000 pound Millennium Falcon, and, Robert Ripley’s favorites, genuine shrunken heads. Ripley liked to surround himself with only the oddest of things so you can expect to be amazed! Also at this location, you will find a 4D Theater offering a wonderfully immersive experience into a myriad of films that change year-round.
