Would you have them stop in at the Franklin Hotel to see the grounds or is it not worth the trip any more? I did the Eerie Ghost Tour of Richmond and loved it!

I am not familiar with the Franklin House so I can not comment, but I have stayed in the Hospitality House and the Inns Of Williamsburg which is nice. The H H though is more affordable and have special rates and a indoor gargage on Richmond road across from William and Mary football stadium. Both are in walking district of the grounds of Colonial Williamsburg . Other hotels in the area have many different price range, so a scan through a hotel web site can find real bargains. For the restaurant of choice in Colonial Williamsburg is the Fat Canary, do not miss a oppertunity for great food. Even though the owners is a friend, I highly reccomend to get a reservation there to have a wonderful dining experience in colonial Williamsburg... 410 W Duke of Gloucester St

There is many grounds to walk and by the time I stroll through colonial Williamsburg and get back to the hotel, my feet are grounded. If you like golf...one of the best, top A list course is the GoldenHorseshoe in Colonial Williamsburg also....(besides Kingsmill) They have great golf facilities often with links to the Pro golf tours. I am sure that you will be overwhem with the many attractions in Williamsburg and Richmond...enjoy Virginia and their sites. TaTa

cheers tommy x and thanks for the tips

Fondest memory: Going back in time with the character actors on the grounds of Colonial Williamsburg...They play a big part of looking into the past history of building Americas.
