So last Sunday, we thought we would take in some history and we took a 2 hour drive from Charlottesville to Williamsburg.

Colonial Williamsburg is a combination of a historical landmark and a living history museum consisting of an open-air collection of buildings together with costumed reenactors explaining aspects of daily life in 17th century Virginia. The weather was just perfect and we enjoyed walking down the main pedestrianised street and having lunch at the Kings Arms. No sunday roast but they did an awesome peanut soup. The menu was historically accurate to the era.

Here are some pics;
