All I can say is, "Wow"! What other place can you drink beer and ride multiple roller coasters? What a recipe for disaster. Fortunately, the family made it through without incident and fun was had by all at Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, VA.
Other than the fact that it is a mere 3.5 hours from Raleigh, the other thing that I liked about Williamsburg was the variety that it offers. We also stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge, a terrific hotel/ indoor water park. It allowed me to share the whiteness of my lounging winter months with perfect strangers. How wonderful!
Please notice from the photo, how pleasant the children were during the entire visit.
