On Saturday, June 1, 2013, as a part of the Run For The Dream Half Marathon, we got a free ticket to tour Colonial Williamsburg. Once we had lunch, we headed to the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center to get my wife a ticket. I got a free ticket, but we had to get one for my wife. We went up to the counter and asked for one tour ticket. We asked could we charge the ticket to the room, approximately $40, and he said, “Wait, your staying at the Woodlands?” We said yes, and he advised that we get free tickets for the tour. This was awesome news, as he saved us $40! A great perk for staying on property! Once we had our tickets, they gave us badges to clip our ticket to our shirt, so it could be easily seen on property.
We exited out the back of the Visitor Center and it was like we immediately went back into the 18th Century. We first came upon an outpost which had neat fencing, various houses, and gardens.
Once done at the outpost, we got back on the trail and walked about 3/4 mile until we arrived at the heart of Colonial Williamsburg.
Once in the town, we went to the Governor’s Palace. We toured both the outside and inside.
I realized we took far too many pictures for one post, so I am going to break this up into several segments. I hope you enjoyed this post, and will look forward to more of Colonial Williamsburg tomorrow.
