Subject: Re: Can we talk- Williamsburg Plan
Dear Elizabeth, Here are a couple of ideas for outside Williamsburg: You can take scenic Highway 5 from Williamsburg to Richmond. There are several historic Plantations you can stop at along the way. Most will be open for tours and one, Shirley Plantation, has a restaurant. Richmond is about an hour away. In Richmond, there are several historic sites, the Capital building designed by Jefferson, and museums , including a Children's Museum. A longer jaunt, but well worth the drive (about 2.5 hours), is Monticello near Charlottesville, home of the University Of Virginia. The tour of Monticello is excellent and there is a historic restaurant just before you enter Jefferson's estate. I took my family there last Thanksgiving and there were no crowds. Very best, Mark
