Best Attractions in Williamsburg, Jamestown & YorktownNow that you're thoroughly immersed in 18th-century life, a good place to have a traditional Colonial dinner is at King's Arms Tavern . Head east down Duke of Gloucester Street toward The Capitol. This genteel establishment, decorated in colors and furnishings typical of the period, features working fireplaces in eight of its 11 dining rooms. Opened by Mrs. Jane Vobe in 1772, it soon became a favorite of Williamsburg's gentry. Diners sit at tables lit by candlelight and enjoy such traditional fare as Mrs. Vobe's Peanut Soupe (“garnished with roasted Peanuts and Sippets”), Colonial Game Pye and Syllabub for dessert while being serenaded by roving balladeers. Don't forget to make reservations in advance; they're required.

A fitting way to end your first evening in Williamsburg and a fun thing to do with friends is to take The Original Ghosts of Williamsburg Candlelight Tour . Guides with lanterns lead groups along Williamsburg's darkened streets while weaving stories about local history, folklore and paranormal activity, including a stop at the Peyton Randolph House , supposedly one of the city's most haunted.
