Colonial WIlliamsburg, with teen son....just a day and a half...

Jump to last reply

Mom (me) and college bound HS boy, are visiting William and Mary, but have the weekend to spend in WIlliamsburg area. So much of what I read about Colonial WIlliamsburg seems like he might think too childish. We do have a car, and are staying on property of CW. Arriving Saturday afternoon, have all day SUnday to tour, and campus tour, etc on Monday, although we will stay that night, too, so all in all, we have a few days there.

What might you recommend?

He is a history buff, me, not so much (lousy schooling!) but interested in learning. Just don't want overly touristy trap stuff...not too childish, he is 18! Interested in the history, obviously. Too, any good eats to recommend? Don't mind spending a little money for a special meal.
