When I wrote a post about Colonial Williamsburg and the historic triangle last month, I had no idea that our family would travel there again anytime soon.

Yeah, verily, put on your powdered wig/buckled shoes and call up the fife and drums, because a press trip has fallen into my lap and all of us are getting on a plane this coming Friday to fly to Virginia. 

I’ll be blogging all during the trip about our experiences:  visiting the live-action story of democracy at Williamsburg’s Revolutionary City,  seeing what the archaeologists are digging up at historic Jamestown, a re-created Continental Army encampment with historical interpreters at Yorktown, and oh, yes, partying like it’s 1776 at Busch Gardens and Water Country USA.

Sainted Husband and young son also plan to try out some golf at the Kingsmill resort.

I have never been on an organized press trip/media tour, and this one came to me courtesy of the communications/PR folks at VisitWilliamsburg, who like this blog and want to reach all of you bloggy family travel enthusiasts out there and show you what they can offer.  Since I’ve visited the area several times on personal travel, I think I can give you a well-rounded, honest view of all aspects of a family vacation in one of the birthplaces of the U.S. 

More to follow….our first stop is flying into Norfolk, Virginia.
