Fair Week Vacation to Williamsburg, VA! (Parts 1 and 2)

It’s hard believe September is over – especially since we now have to wait an entire year to go on our annual “Fair Week Vacation.” Every year, the thousands of people descending on our town to visit the Bloomsburg Fair make it impossible for buses to transport students safely. As a result, all the county schools shut down for the week and many locals take the opportunity to go on an off-season vacation.

This year, we headed to the historical triangle to visit Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown with a stop at Virginia Beach. It was a timely field trip because all three of our kids are obsessed with the Broadway musical Hamilton. We squeezed in as much as we could, while leaving enough to give us a reason to go back one day.

For our stay, we chose Anvil Campground. It made for an excellent basecamp. We were 7 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg. The campground was clean and well-maintained. The family owners obviously take great pride in their property. The sites were close, but we weren’t looking for a state park, we were looking for a great location with nice amenities and Anvil Campground delivered. One warning: there is a very-active train track bordering one side of the property. If you are a light sleeper, this may not be the campground for you. We slept just fine.


We did so many fun things that I’ve broken our trip down into smaller videos. Check out the first two:
