Yorktown Victory Center
getting there was even fun - the Colonial Highway is all cobblestones and arches, surrounded by beautiful vistas of water and trees, sprinkled with the occasional family of deer.
and when we arrived - we were not disappointed. . .from the Road to Revolution Timeline, to the 1780s Farm and Encampment to the Gallery. . .there was a wonderful array of history, artifacts, and people to fascinate all four of us.

There was even a cannon firing, which Ryan found absolutely awesome. Owen preferred to go inside and check out the Sunken Ship exhibit and John was enamored with the July 1776 broadside of the Declaration of Independence. There is something for everyone and more to see than we had time to see it.
From the Victory Center, we traveled into Yorktown proper to have dinner at the Riverwalk Restaurant and enjoy the views. If you've never been, it's a gorgeous waterfront area filled with shopping, dining and entertainment.
