Williamsburg, Virginia is an historic city dating back to 1632 and one which was significant in the American Revolution.

People are dressed in period clothing, stories are told and tours given to take one back in time.

Aside from the Merchant Market and Colonial Williamsburg there are still plantations. We visited two of them. the grounds around the plantations are open, however, the main houses were not. I did get a peak into one though. Also along the route was an occasional historic church.

This was just a taste of what Williamsburg offers in it’s area. A very pretty place. When these pictures were taken the trees had not leafed out yet. Today the cherry trees have bloomed. But that’s for another day….
