Kathie Schweikert says...

Walking & Eating in Colonial Williamsburg. Love the atmosphere and history.
Biking. So many great places to see. Biking on Colonial Parkway along the James River you can go to Jamestown Island or bike to Yorktown and go to the beach or riverfront. I also like to bike to Colonial Williamsburg and have lunch at the Cheese shop.
New Town. Fun to eat, shop, catch a movie or meet up with friends.

Carrie Doherty says...

The Cheese Shop - their sandwiches are out of this world!!!
Yankee Candle - Not only does is smell amazing, but they have a room where it actually snows year round!!! They also have a clock that has a little show every hour that the kids LOVE. I feel lilke I am in a quaint little village and enjoy every minute.
Lisa Bishop's house (Manager of - the cooking is unbeatable, the hostess is gracious and the ambiance is that of old world Tuscany. Hey! Thanks for the compliment, Carrie!
Kimball Theatre - It's a great little theatre that shows old, independant and off beat movies. A must see.
William & Mary - beautiful campus and holds A LOT of history.
Jamestown Settlement - the outdoor museum tour is great, but the new indoor museum is AMAZING. Filled with artifacts and details that many of us don't know about our country's history.
Great Wolf Lodge - This is such a great place for family's to stay. You won't need to EVER leave the Lodge...unless you want to. The indoor waterpark is great for all ages and is open year round. They have a new outdoor waterpark opening soon.
The horse drawn wagon ride through Williamsburg - it is a great way to see the old town...and fun too!
