Our family of 6 set off on a road trip recently and had our sights set on Williamsburg VA as one of our stopping points. Williamsburg's rich history and many restaurants, shops and hotels attract visitors year round. It was my husband and myself (both 40somethings), our 15 year old daughter, 13 year old son, 8 year old daughter and 6 year old son. We spent one day at Water Country USA and had a blast cooling off in the many water slides and pools. The second day we hit Busch Gardens and had an incredible day of fun and great food and entertainment. I can honestly say, this was the most enjoyable time we've spent at a theme park ever. The weather was partly cloudy so no worries of getting too sunburned as we meandered through the meticulously kept grounds. My husband, who is an avid landscaper thoroughly enjoyed the designs and combinations of flowers, trees and shrubs that were on display at every turn. We did have an hour or so of rain pouring down, which we used wisely to refuel ourselves with a wonderful meal in the Festhaus. The kids needed a break from the roller coasters and other brain scrambling rides. While dining we watched a very entertaining German inspired musical show with singers, dancers and musicians. The kids loved the music and performers and desserts and the adults loved the German food and beer! Afterall, Busch Gardens is owned by the Anheuser Busch folks so we knew we'd be treating ourselves to a nice cold one at some point that day!
