Colonial Williamsburg

What I Did in Williamsburg

I can’t believe that this time last week, I was making last minute preparations for vacation! Seriously, where does the time go??

Luckily, I managed to document some of the events of the trip, and I’d love to share them with you! My family and I have been visiting Williamsburg since I was a little kid. The place means a lot to me because of its historical significance and the wonderful memories I’ve made there with my family over the years. Also, it’s where I saw my first Harry Potter movie.

If you’ve never been, you should definitely consider going! Colonial Williamsburg is beautiful! The buildings have been restored to resemble the structures that stood there in colonial times. Also, no cars are allowed on the streets there, which really transports you back into our country’s past. So cool.

We were even able to tour some of the buildings; the one below held artillery that would have been used during the revolution! It was quite intimidating, but really interesting at the same time.

We also watched a historical re-inactment, in which fake accents abounded. Regardless, it was actually really fun! The acting wasn’t bad, and the costumes were realistic as well! Check out these handsome dudes:DSC_0796 DSC_0797

We also went out to eat at Christiana Campbell’s Tavern, which is a colonial-style restaurant at which the waiters dress in colonial garb and play the fiddle as you dine on the most delicious crab cakes known to man. Seriously though, if you eat there, go for the crab cakes and be sure to order root beer; it’s the best I’ve ever had.

The meals are quite pricey, but you’re paying for the atmosphere, and it’s well worth it in my opinion.

Thought I’d sneak in a little OOTN (Outfit of the Night) just to show you what I wore to dinner! It had been raining a lot, so I chose to keep it simple with a circle skirt to ensure I wouldn’t be too toasty.

My skirt is from Target; tank top is from Delia’s; sleeveless jean jacket is from American Eagle; shoes are from American Eagle; necklace is from Forever 21.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post, and hopefully it inspired some of you to take a trip to Williamsburg! You won’t regret it!

On a side note, I did do a little shopping whilst on vacation, and I’m sure you’ll soon see a post that somehow relates to that, so keep an eye out!

Until next time,

Sarah E.
