You may have read in one of our other blogs about the great school systems in Virginia, but did you know that living in Virginia is an education in itself. Where else are you going to see so much living history, and so many places of the past preserved. Just a short drive from Richmond will take you to Colonial Williamsburg where the past comes alive every day with recreations from the revolutionary war period, street theater, and stories of the everyday life of the residents of 18th century Williamsburg.
