Our morning in historic Jamestown started off a little rocky when it failed to catch the interest of the littles. By lunchtime, they were fully engaged and especially enjoyed the Voorhees museum because it had real skeletons. Also, giving James a phone and telling him he’s making a movie increases his interest significantly. We will remember this trick in the future.
Even better for the kids than historic Jamestown was the Jamestown Settlement. Because it’s more of a reenactment, they got to do tons of hands-on activities and explore ships and buildings. It’s a good thing we did that second because otherwise historic Jamestown would’ve been a big disappointment for them.
We wrapped up our day back in Williamsburg with a delicious dinner at Shield’s Tavern.
