Our first vacation to Williamsburg, Virginia
Williamsburg, Virginia… if you live on the East Coast, then a family vacation to Williamsburg, Virginia is likely on your family’s bucket list. It’s been on ours. We’ve seen the commercials for Colonial Williamsburg on tv and we’ve seen the ads for Kingsmill Resort on Facebook. Each time I see them I think I need to make the time for a historic family vacation to Virginia.
With my kids getting older (two of them are now in middle school ACK) and learning more about US history, never has there been a better time to help them connect what they learn at school with real life experiences. Our family vacation to Williamsburg proved to be a bit of learning about history, some digging into it, reconnecting with family, and more. It was all fun. Take a look at just how you can plan your family vacation to Williamsburg, Virginia.

Williamsburg, Virginia restaurants
To keep our dining budget in check, we had breakfast in our room with cereal and milk we brought from home most days. We purchased food for dinner from a local grocery store as well. We did a few lunches out and about. You can visit the Visit Williamsburg site for more information about local Williamsburg, Virginia restaurants.
