Today we went to the 1st settlement in the U.S., Jamestown, VA.

We went to the reconstructed settlement as well as the original site. We were expecting something similar to Williamsburg, but were surprise. Both places were done to give you the feel of the times. It was as if visiting it 300 years ago. It made history fun.

We would recommend seeing this. Ava even got involved in some of the things.
