Gosh, your subject says nothing about what you want to know.

You need to repost with a subject line like "things to do with kids between Virginia and Texas".

What is your travel route? If you are going I8, the Natural Bridge Safari park is a fun stop.

Ackislander. I already had a post for things to do from texas to williamsburg and no response. For this one i thought i had put FROM WILLIAMSBURG in title but i didnt. We are looking for fun kid things to and from texas and are very flexible on routes and want to find things for small breaks during drive and destinations in various towns

Our preliminary travel is to williamsburg

New orleans
Atlanta
Greensville sc to cut over to coastal carolina

Return
West virginia
Kentucky/tennesee area
Memphis

But we have no set plans other than visiting friends in VA and greenville SC

Try to stop overnight in Greenville. Its downtown is one of the great urban success stories with lots of restaurants of all types and prices, fabulous minor league baseball, and a park along the Reedy River with all kinds of good stuff for kids. Shopping from boutiques to penny candy. Rush Wilson, possibly the preppiest men's store in the US outside New England.

If any of your kids like horses, this is the place to go. Do NOT go the third weekend in July...there's a huge convention there and it's a mob scene!

Kids? Or just adults? Budget? Do you want a Colonial dining experience or a gourmet one?
You can start by looking at the Colonial Williamsburg web site:
www.colonialwilliamsburg.com
You should make reservations for their dining events ASAP.
Kingsmill has activities for families and shuttles to CW and Christmastown at Busch Gardens.

If you are ever in the Williamsburg VA area and want to get a good feel for what there is to do, for both you and the whole family check out www.whattodoinwilliamsburgva.com
It's a great place to do a little research on the place.
