A Getaway to Williamsburg




I just recently went for a long weekend getaway to one of my favorite places -- Williamsburg.  Since moving to the Raleigh area, it is great to be closer to this beautiful area to visit.

Williamsburg offers so much history, art and cultural activities.  There is also plenty of shopping and restaurants to fulfill anyone's needs.

We stayed in a beautiful Bed & Breakfast in the historic area.  This was our first time staying at this one and we really enjoyed our stay.  


One of our favorite's closed recently.  See here.

Well I am just going to share some photos of the historic area, so sit back and enjoy.

Governor's Palace


Wythe House
The Shoemaker




Magazine








Bruton Parish Church




I loved this style of fencing too.....



There was even some gardening this time of year.  I have to say the gardens are absolutely beautiful in the spring!







You can also tour the historic area via horse and carriage and I have done this in the past and really enjoyed it!



I just love this wreath made from pomegranates, lotus pods and pine cones.  So BEAUTIFUL!


This is one of my favorite restaurants in the historic area - The Blue Talon.  See here.


It is decorated with French accents and the food is wonderful too!

Above is Merchant's Square where their are specialty shops (Williams Sonoma, Chico's, Peanut Shop of Williamsburg, bakery and many restaurants.

One of my favorite Home Decor shops in Merchant's Square.


It's always so wonderful to go on a long weekend getaway and Williamsburg always is a hit for me!

Hope you enjoyed the mini tour of my trip.

Thanks for your visit!

Have you been on any weekend getaways lately?

  3. I visited Williamsburg about 15 years ago and was enthralled by the entire place. My aunt and uncle met at Williamsburg - he was one of the architects involved in the building of it and my aunt was a secretary there. Their first home as a married couple was in one of the cottages - no electricity!

  6. That looks like so much fun! We've never been to Williamsburg but I'd love to go. It's about a zillion miles from Dallas. :)
