Historic Area makes best-selling bucket list
WILLIAMSBURG – Author Patricia Schultz’ New York Times bestselling book, “1,000 Places to See before You Die – A Traveler’s Life List,” has named Colonial Williamsburg to its updated second edition. Schultz calls Colonial Williamsburg “a treat for both adults and kids” and calls the level of detail in the meticulous re-creation of the colonial period “astonishing.”
The listing refers to the country’s largest, most popular living history museum as “one of the finest” and specifically mentions the Fifes and Drums, the Williamsburg Inn and Colonial Houses-Historic Lodging, the taverns, the Spa of Colonial Williamsburg and the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club.
The listing recommends a drive on the Colonial Parkway “a winding wooded road that connects Williamsburg with the other two locales that make up Virginia’s Historic Triangle: Jamestown, founded in 1607 and the original capital of colonial Virginia, and Yorktown, one of the colony’s major ports in the 18th century and site of the last battle of the American Revolution.”
The book is available from Amazon.com in hard cover, paperback and Kindle.
