Williamsburg, VA

Williamsburg, VA

Richmond is kind of cool in the sense that it can be a good jumping off point for weekend trips to historical places, or just a place to relax. My mother is an American history buff, not my era, but she has talked about Williamsburg forever. After my move from Montreal in early January, I figured that Josh and I would like a weekend away to just de-stress, also a weekend away from our kitties. We love them dearly, but sometimes, you just need a break.

Josh’s birthday is near Christmas, so this year I decided to get him a bit bigger of a gift and combine them. I planned a weekend away for us in Williamsburg, and planned the surprise of a couple of our friends meeting us there.

I booked us a beautiful room at Wedmore Place . It is very classic in its architecture and design, plus the setting of a winery is just generally more romantic. One of the best aspects of this hotel is that each room is its own theme and is decorated accordingly. We stayed in the Westphalia room, and it was lovely.

I stalled Josh as long as I could until our friends arrived and we made our way out to dinner at Giuseppe’s Italian Restaurant before heading on a ghost tour of historic Williamsburg. Dinner was nice and the tour was fun. We called it a night and decided we would wander around the historic centre again in the daylight.

It is a really cute town, albeit very touristy on a weekend. The shops are sweet, and a bit pricey, but the experience overall is very nice. We will definitely go back, and visit the spirits that are walking around the old town square.
