Scenic drive around Jamestowne
Drove the Colonial Parkway
stretching from the York River at Yorktown to the James River at Jamestown.
We originally thought we would just drive up here for the day and explore The Colonial Parkway lush views. But at both ends of the parkway the National Park Service has visitor and information centers to explore. We began our exploration at The Yorktown Battlefield end of the parkway. This was where the last major battle of The American Revolution for fought, and won by General George Washington, giving The United States of America it's independence from England. It figures we started where it all ended! After a short film in the visitors center we were off to drive the Colonial Parkway end to end. In the middle of the 23 mile long parkway is Williamsburg, but we didn't stop here, not enough time. At the other end of the parkway is where the British first started colonizing the new land called Jamestowne.
