Colonial Williamsburg

We are planning a first time trip from out west to CW mid November (~13th-15th) with family (boys 10 and 20). Have read most previous CW posts. My 10-yo is going to be studying the Rev War. so it became a good excuse to travel. We'll also be visiting Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown. 3 nights/2 full days in CW. (We are flying in to Dulles, spending 1st half in DC (1st time visit) during the week and then weekend in CW.). Is it better instead to be in CW during week and DC on weekend?

I wanted to be within walking distance of CW; so trying to decide about staying at the Wiliamsburg Lodge or save some money at the Govenor's Inn (no use traveling all that way and staying someplace if its awful).

Anything I should be especially aware of at this time of year (will bring our 'brellies')? Any 'cant miss' things to do or events, food to eat, theatre, music?
