  • Excellent parkway with fall colors driving between the colonial Virginia sites. Seems remote and tranquil from modern day.

  • Great National Park in which to experience one of the most important battles in American history. Easy to walk around and a well prepared visitors center make this site a must. I would visit again. Plan on spending 4 or more hours here to savor the experience.
  • Very modern building and great job displaying historical facts. Interactive, informative, interesting. Movies, puzzles, questions. Then you go outside and see the canon and musket being used. All presenters were friendly, well versed, open to questions. Make sure you have enough time for all sites.
