Road Trip: Colonial Williamsburg

Another in a short series of notes on recent family vacations.

This summer we took a minivacation, about 4 days, in Virginia. We drove down to Williamsburg, stayed at a Homewood Suites, spent about a day and a half at Colonial Williamsburg, and a day at Busch Gardens. The kids got a little bored with the colonial town but perked up when we found the section with historical children's games, and when we took a ghost tour one evening. They loved the amusement park. We also went to the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum.

If the idea appeals to you but the traveling doesn't, check out Pennsbury Manor in Bucks County and then go to Sesame Place.

My favorite part of the whole trip was sitting in a back booth at the local Friendly's, having ice cream, and laughing about something that happened earlier in the day.
