Spring Still Hanging On...What To Do Inside in Williamsburg!

The weather is still a bit chilly and there is even a threat of snow this evening in Williamsburg, but there are still some wonderful things to do here this week.

Why not enjoy the W&M Symphony Orchestra at the Kimball Theater this Friday evening at 7 o"clock in the evening. They will be presenting Wings (1927) with live accompaniment by Christine Niehaus. When you leave the performance head on over to the Fat Canary for a glass of Wine at the bar and meet some of the locals.


If that's not enough of the arts for you for one weekend then try "An Evening of Dance" put on by the William and Mary department of Dance, theater and Speech. It will be in Phi Beta Kappa Hall on the Campus of William and Mary at 8 PM on March 23rd 
 
Now, those are some wonderful evening events but what about during the day in Williamsburg? Well, how about the Williamsburg antique mall, or the Williamsburg Pottery and one of my favorites the Williamsburg Prime Outlets! 

Some of our favorite Williamsburg places to eat? Opus 9 steak and seafood, Waypoint Seafood, Fat Canary, and of course Le Yaca!

Remember to stay here at Colonial Gardens when you are looking for upscale accommodations with an attention for detail. Romance is always in the air here.
