Colonial Williamsburg

We took a mini-vacation this weekend. We drove to Williamsburg, VA (150 miles away) for a weekend getaway. The weather was perfect! It was the nicest weekend of the year, it's still March but the temperatures went up to the low 80's in the afternoon. Nights were a little cooler down to low 60's. It couldn't be nicer. We stayed in a hotel at the Historic Area of Colonial Williamsburg from Saturday to Monday. We scheduled our days to give us enough time to see the historic area, rest and relax. On Saturday we arrived at 6 PM. We checked in, took the Shuttle to Market Square. The buildings and the streets make you feel like you traveled back in time. We bought peanut brittle from the Virginia Peanut Shop and a number of gourmet products at the Imported Foods store. Then we went to Aromas for a fondue. I ordered a Crab and Asiago cheese fondue, even though I was a little skeptical of the mix, it turned out to be very good. I didn't taste much of the cheese but you could tell for sure it was made with Chesapeake Bay crabs! I guess the cheese was just a binding ingredient. They served with bread, celery, and carrots. Then we headed back to the hotel to relax and eat all the peanut brittle. On Sunday and Monday we spent most of the day at the historic area, visiting the buildings where they have guided tours but we found time for naps back in the hotel and for a nice and relaxing massage at the Woodland Spa.
