What do Garden Week, Spring Break and Easter all Have in Common? Two Words: Family Fun.
Flowers along the Colonial Parkway are blooming for Historic Garden Week, which features local house and garden tours. Colonial Williamsburg’s Garden Symposium offers programs to help turn your outdoor space into a daily pleasure. The picturesque setting is the perfect backdrop for the annual Run for the Dream race to benefit wounded warriors.
It’s spring break in Greater Williamsburg, and the Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown Victory Center have historical adventures that the entire family is sure to enjoy. You can try on armor, wander through Continental Army tents, or take part in spring plantings of period gardens and crops. Busch Gardens welcomes spring visitors to its season opener, where you can delight in thrilling coaster rides, dazzling Broadway-inspired shows and an assortment of restaurants.
