Colonial Williamsburg is a Kid Trips family travel favorite. Visitors can explore 18th century life by visiting the many buildings, museums, tours, and programs the Revolutionary City has to offer. Go visit America's largest living-history museum, and check out some of the newest programs for Spring/Summer 2015.
RevQuest: The King’s Advance: For those in search of an adventure that’s a challenge for the entire family, the popular text-message-based interactive spy adventure RevQuest: Save the Revolution is back with a new chapter. RevQuest: The King's Advance debuts on March 23 and will take Questors on a new spy adventure throughout the Revolutionary City. Nearly six years of war mostly spared the new nation’s biggest state until January 1781, when a force led by turncoat British Brig. Gen. Benedict Arnold raided and burned its new capital city of Richmond. In April Williamsburg, the former colonial capital, fell under British occupation. Revolutionary leaders including Gov. Thomas Jefferson and the Marquis de Lafayette scramble to the state’s defense, and they are desperate for information about the size of looming British forces under Maj. Gen. William Phillips, already in Virginia, and Lord Cornwallis, who is bringing more troops up from the Carolinas. Collecting that intelligence falls to players who can carry out their mission this spring.
Programming at the Taste Studio: Families are invited to tour the Historic Area’s gardens, pick herbs and vegetables and follow a cooking demo at the Taste Studio using the items collected in the gardens. Also, check out Hands-on with American Heritage Chocolate, a fun, hands-on workshop where families can make and customize chocolate truffles made with American Heritage Chocolate.
