Weekend Getaways

Colonial Williamsburg's Living Museum

1 Colonial Williamsburg

Wander the cobbled streets of this national treasure. Try on period outfits (for a fee), learn to make cabinets or shoes, tour an old printing office, and ask costumed interpreters anything you want.

2 Chowning's Tavern

The revolutionary spirit prevails after 5, when 18th-century fare like Brunswick stew and Welsh rarebit are accompanied by colonial-style entertainment and family sing-alongs.

3 Colonial Houses-Historic Lodging

The 18th-century houses and taverns scattered throughout the historic village are retrofitted with modern comforts, bathrooms chief among them.
