Southeast Coast Trip – Day 13 (Virginia)

We had made plans to spend all day in Colonial Williamsburg, but since we were staying at C-Lo’s timeshare, she had to attend a presentation that took much longer than both of us anticipated. But at least she got free tickets to Colonial Williamsburg. So we then spent the rest of the day checking out all the cool buildings from the 1770’s, including the Governer’s Palace and the Capitol.

We also explored Bassett Hall, where John D. Rockefeller lived for a few months out of the year. Unbeknownst to us, John had a big part in saving and restoring the colonial section back in the 1930’s, and it is now one of Virginia’s biggest attractions. I used to go here all the time as a kid and even spent a few Fourth of Julys here with my sister and her family. We concluded our fun colonial day with a great dinner at Christiana Campbell’s Tavern.
