Jamestown, Virginia

Day 2

Travel:

     It is only appropriate that our first stop on our journey is the place where the English first settled in North America, the settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. There are two areas of Historic Jamestown: Jamestown Settlement and Historic Jamestown. The first is the result of cooperation between the State of Virginia and a private foundation. The result is an impressive museum and walking tours of the area, including archaeological digs. The second area is part of the Colonial National Historical Park, administered by the National Park Service. Since the history of Jamestown is the same, they overlap. However, the National Park was not as impressive because of the overwhelming information and knowledge presented by the Jamestown Settlement in their magnificent museum, live demonstrations, and presentations.

 Technical Stuff:

45.5 Round trip from Campground

14.2 MPG
