Check out Abingdon VA (where I live ,born and raised so I don't know any better)it will be exactly the half way point in your journey. Its a Historical town started in the 1700's. Was first named Wolf Hills by Daniel Boone as he lost some dogs to wolves in one of his stays here.State theater (Barter Theater) is here if you like that sorta thing and good places to eat.Check it out its in the S.W> end part of the State.

Yorktown

It's only a few miles from Williamsburg. In addition to the main visitor center check out the outlying encampment areas and the old part of Yorktown itself. It should appeal to a history buff like you. Whenever I am at the Coast Guard base there I take a hike or jog through the back roads of the area.

Are you goting to the SHOT show?

Well, in Williamsburg you'll be near the town of Virginia Beach. They have an area of the beach that is a so-called nude beach, mostly college girls on summer vacation, but I don't suppose you'd be interrested in that.

The Historic Triangle

Once you get here, you will be surrounded by history in Williamsburg. The Historic Triangle consists of Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown Encampment, Yorktown Battlefield, all major places in the infancy of the United States. all are literally within minutes of one another. A couple of Indian Reservations, Pocahontas and her tribe were literally a couple miles from our house here in Central Virginia. Her statue/monument is still at the entrance to their reservation along with an Indian Museum and story teller. Richmond is full of civil war places like Belle Isle, a prison camp. The Battlefields at Fort Lee(awesome) just outside Petersburg south of Richmond. Virginia Beach speaks for itself, but I moved out of there to much civilization for me. I am about an hour and half west of there, more things to legally shoot at out here.:)

Then an hour away is Ft Monroe and the Norfolk Naval Operations Base, NOB, the largest in the entire world, four of five Aircraft Carriers, latest in the state of the art Aegis Cruisers, Destroyers, subs etc. Fort Monroe is the only military base operating today surrounded by a mote, no alligators though.

Stay in touch, I guide you via the internet.

Wifey is planning to stay near Bush Gardens, so the yutes can be occupied. From what Sonny says I might be MIA.

BTW, we have a Jamestown too, now the parish of St. James. Ours was settled in 1627.

Stop at Pierce's Drive -In - Rt 60 E of W'Burg....

Good 'ol VA BBQ. You will not regret it, finger-lickin', lip smackin' GOOD!!

Grew up near there in Hampton VA, Williamsburg is a great place to visit, so much history. As another poster mentioned, check out Yorktown as well while you are there. If they are still in business Nick's Seafood Pavillion used to be one of the best seafood restaurants anywhere.

Busch Gardens is another popular attraction in Willamsburg, especially if you have kids.

I know you will have a blast,

Jim

If you starting in Atlanta

You need to talk the "wifey" into an overnight stopover here so us GGVGers could meet up with you guys and say hi in person. We are 30 minutes from the airport in a west direction.

There are a few in the area. PLUS you would get to meet your long lost across the pond "twin" birthday person.:eek:
