Our plans for the Learning Brave US History Tour includes;
Experiencing some of the most beautiful and vibrant historical sites in the USA!
Williamsburg - Williamsburg is Virginia's top tourist destination, resembling the city as it would have been in the 1770s. It refers to itself as a “living history museum” and is filled with restored and rebuilt buildings (everything from the courthouse to taverns to the Governor's Palace) and re-enactors who wander around the Revolutionary City and NEVER break character.
Jamestown - This is where it all began! We will visit the original site of the American settlers which is also an active archaeological site! We will also explore a world-class living history museum - climb aboard re-creations of the three ships that brought America's first permanent English colonists to Virginia, check out the Fort, museums and Powhatan Indian Village.
Yorktown - Yorktown Battlefield is the site of one of the most important battles in United States history. Walk where George Washington walked!! There is a world-class museum and outdoor living history exhibits.
Delicious food! We are planning to eat in a traditional colonial tavern - come and try unique 18th century dishes in the ambiance of the revolutionary era.
WATER PARK!! And not just any water park, we are heading to Virginia's largest family water park - Water Country! Mid week when things get hot, we are going to cool off in the many pools, water slides and wave pools available.
Cultural enrichment through learning and exploration of the country's past, present and future. We will have a theme each day to focus on and discuss as a group as we learn together about the many people and places of the revolutionary era.
Movie nights, devotionals, and teen connection activities.
All of this and more for an incredible experience in historical Virginia USA!
