I take I64 east and if we want to stop for supper we go to the McDonalds on the Toano Williamsburg exit because I don't want to spend alot of money for supper at Busch Gardens.

I can't believe I almost forgot to tell you about Pierce's Pitt BBQ in Williamsburg. If you like bbq you will love this place. It is very causual and resonably priced. The addess is 447 Rochambeau Dr. I'm sure you can find it by using map quest.

I worked at Busch Gardens for a season. What an interesting job that was.
I have a friend in Williamsburg, let me see what I can dig up.

I grew up in Newport News and was there recently. You have to check out the Colonial Parkway, this time of year the colors are great. Jamestown is celebrating their 400th anniversery this year, so that might be a fun thing to do.

Hey, Ally,
Used to live 45 minutes NE of Williamsburg. There is a wonderful Thai or Vietnamese restaurant which I will look up and give you the name of. Althought Williamsburg has certaninly a lot of history I would suggest taking a day or half day down to Yorktown as well. Are you going for history or golf or what? What time of year? What kind of food? What are your interests? How far do you mind traveling in terms of a day trip? I could go on and on but might as well be specific to your needs if I know what they are. You can email me if you like.

I really don't like the Big Bad Wolf because it's been getting jerkier over the years and I get a headache when I get off it.
