Williamsburg in Winter

Colonial Williamsburg is one of our favorite places to visit.  It’s an incredibly beautiful and interesting place.  We love to stay in one of the taverns of colonial houses.  A couple years ago we went to Williamsburg at the end of February and stayed at the Market Square Tavern, just off Market Square.  The Market Square Tavern was home to Thomas Jefferson while he studied law with George Wythe.  This was the second time we stayed at the tavern and this time we opted for the only room with a fireplace.

We had a light snow the first night but not enough to affect anything.  The second night we got about six inches of snow and Williamsburg officially closed due to the winter weather.  Despite the closure of all the exhibits we enjoyed the beauty of Williamsburg in the snow.  Colonial Williamsburg was great during the closure.  We were offered a room upgrade to Williamsburg Inn, which we declined.  And that evening an employee stopped in to start the fire in the fireplace.  Here’s a couple photos of Williamsburg in the snow.

My wife says I make stuff up. While that's probably true I'm going to stick to stuff that's mostly true.
