1.  Colonial Williamsburg

U.S. history comes alive with a tour of Colonial Williamsburg, which hosts the best, and the longest running, electronic field trips in the nation. Discover how the Revolutionary War reached into the West to frontier communities in the Ohio River Valley. American Indians, French traders, British and American colonists, and African Americans faced life-changing decisions about whether to fight—and on which side.
