We left Savannah this morning to drive to our 4th and final destination - Williamsburg, VA. It was a beautiful sunny day which made the drive seem so easy - after driving in pouring rain on our way to Charleston. We arrived in Williamsburg after about 8 hours, including stops.
I am loyal to the Hilton brand when I travel, specifically Homewood Suites if they are available in the area. For our night in Mount Vernon, we stayed at a Hampton Inn (still Hilton brand). Then we had a Homewood Suites for our other three stays. Twice we had a king one bedroom and once a king studio. We prefer the one bedroom, if we can, so that if one of us is awake and the other isn't, we can shut the bedroom door and use the living room area.
We were happy with all of our rooms but our room here in Williamsburg has been the best. It is so big and the bathroom area is also just outside the bedroom, so I can get ready in the morning while Chris is sleeping without any lights on in the bedroom area.
We ate tonight at a restaurant called Food for Thought. There is a box of cards on the table with various topics and questions to discuss to give you "food for thought." We liked the ones that gave you a court case to read and decide and then you would turn over the card to see what was actually decided.
We started out with a beer flight with local Virginia beers. Then I had the pot roast with mashed potatoes and creamed spinach. Chris had a nut crusted chicken with mushroom gravy and fries. The pot roast just broke apart and I especially liked the creamed spinach too. Chris isn't a mushroom fan and he said the gravy had a strong mushroom taste but he liked his meal too.
For dessert, we ordered the apple nachos to share. It looked so amazing that we dove right in and I totally forgot the picture until we were done. I will try to paint a picture for you and show you what remained at the end. There were cinnamon sugar tortilla crisps around the bottom with a large scoop of creamy, rich vanilla ice cream in the middle, and cooked apples around the base of the ice cream. It was super good! Neither one of us could manage the last few bites.
I have been a huge Disney and travel fan since childhood. I love going to new places and, of course, heading to Disney as often as I can.
