As we travel, we enjoy botanical gardens of all shapes and sizes but at home, we are lucky enough to have Norfolk Botanical Garden on our back doorstep where we can enjoy beautiful flowers all spring and summer and a spectacular holiday light display in the winter. This family-friendly spot is a great place to host a wedding or just spend an afternoon.
Berkley Plantation is a family friendly and a history buff's bonanza! It is not in the center of the Williamsburg tourist attractions, which is a plus for us and we thought it was worth the short drive to visit. The plantation is peaceful and beautifully situated high above the James River.
Tucked deeply in Williamsburg, Virginia's farm land lies a place where the Earth is laughing; Sweethaven Lavender Farm.
