5. Going down to the Potomac River is super cool, but the climb back can be really hard. If you do make it down to the dock, take a right to see the other farm. That’s also where the 16 sided barn is located. Sometimes they do horse demonstrations in the barn and then let you pet the horses afterwards.
6. Kids 8 and under may not enjoy the tour of the house. It seems like a natural part of the time there, but you know your children best.
7. The paths and lawn in front of the house (riverside) are great for kids. Our boys climbed the “ha-ha” walls and we watched kids chasing butterflies. I got some great pictures of my kids with the Potomac River in the background.
8. There are some trades people doing demonstrations on the property. We found the blacksmith fascinating and saw a glimpse of Mrs. Washington. Overall, we felt there were more people dressed in period clothing in Historic Williamsburg.
10. There is a food court attached to the museum that has pizza, pretzels, etc. There is also a restaurant on property. Tons of great things in the Gift Shop too.
