Great place for this time of year. All the sights, sounds and smells are wonderful. It isn’t hot like it is in summer here and you can enjoy everything fall, plus see the start of the Christmas 🎄 Season here.
We spent a day at ‘the Revolutionary City’ and really enjoyed it. My kids especially the 12 year old got bored pretty quick but I found the craftspeople, like the cobbler, the tinsmith and the brick maker very fascinating. My kids even loved visiting the...More

There have been a lot of reviews that said "don't buy the tickets." I disagree - we purchase the tickets and were able into the homes and truly experience the living history. The staff (in costume) were SO incredibly knowledgeable and made each home so...More
It is, but I would take one with larger wheels, in that some of the older streets and buildings have the original roads and floors. Things are at a fairly slow pace so you should not be hurried to go anywhere.
Bush gardens would be fun for all. With small children, go early, go back to room for the nap and lunch, then can return in the evening. Lots to do and see! Small kids are going to care less about the history, but if you go... More
Bush gardens would be fun for all. With small children, go early, go back to room for the nap and lunch, then can return in the evening. Lots to do and see! Small kids are going to care less about the history, but if you go to Yorktown, adults can take in the history and the beach if right below the hills and the kids can play in the sand and water while parents relax with a cold one!
