Not much to see around here, other than recreations of the old fort and re-enactments. Kids will be entertained.

Advertised as a great spot to visit. In reality very isolated nothing there. Not worth the money. Food deflned as excellent place to eat lunch- overpriced and not worth it.

We did Historic Jamestown and Jamestown in one visit. We were updated on the latest archaeological finds at the site and then visited the historic recreation of the site.

We were there during the dig of Capt. Pierce's house. It is part of the Angela, the first black in the colonies. We were able to talk with the archeologists. It gave more meaning to the Jamestowne Settlement.
