"Plantations - plan your trip" Charles City Favorite Tip by matcrazy1

Charles City General: 14 reviews and 21 photos

Favorite thing: Even if you are great fan of old plantations, gardens and historic houses do not try to visit too many in one day. We visited the Berkeley Plantation in the morning, ate early lunch in Indian Tavern restaurant and visited Colonial Williamsburg in the afternoon. We saw a lot but we didn't have much time.

Plan your trip to the plantations in advance and keep in mind their different opening hours and remember that some plantations offer tours only by appointment.
