Williamsburg
Colonial Williamsburg is the largest outdoor living-history museum in the U.S. Families seeking an educational holiday experience love exploring its meticulously-restored buildings and interacting with cast members in period costume. And families seeking an educational holiday experience sans whining make a trip to Busch Gardens or Water Country USA contingent upon good behaviour at Colonial Williamsburg. (Hey-- sometimes successful parenting involves bribery.)

Living history programs and an archaeology museum tell the story of this dramatic rediscovery.
