Trip Report Just Back from Williamsburg

Jump to last reply

I just returned from visiting my daughter in the Army in Virginia. Even with the gas prices, I was shocked to see NO traffic throughout Memorial Day weekend. We drove from North Florida to Virginia in 10 hours. Luckily my husband and I, being military retirees, were given free admission to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg in honor of the holiday, which we really appreciated!

The weather was absolutely spectacular and we enjoyed the German food at Busch Gardens and I made it thru one roller coaster but that was it for me. While in Colonial Williamsburg, we walked to Blue Talon Bistro for lunch and enjoyed it very much. Many people are unaware that you can walk all over CW for free; only the shuttle busses and the buildings require the admission fee. We only went in three or four buildings so I would have been fine without the admission pass - something to think about if you want to see CW but don't want to pay $37 and up.

Anyway, we had a great time and it made me remember how much I love Virgina.
