A Ride Through History
In classic romance movies, the happy couple is often featured riding off into the sunset. Why not make this movie trope a romantic reality? A cozy and intimate horse-drawn carriage ride through Colonial Williamsburg is the ultimate in romance. Where else can you wind through quiet streets while taking in a number of 18th century living-history sites including the Capitol Building, quaint colonial taverns, and the Governor’s Palace? Carriage rides are offered daily, weather permitting, and do have limited availability. Tickets may be purchased at the Lumber House Ticket Office (on Duke of Gloucester Street across from Palace Green), or the William Pitt Store (on the corner of Duke of Gloucester Street and Botetourt Street) on the day of use.
Another uniquely-Williamsburg experience is the Crim Dell Bridge on the campus of William & Mary. With its beautiful arched walkway and ornate design, it’s not surprising that it has been nicknamed “Lover’s Bridge.” In fact, the Crim Dell is one of the most photographed spots in Williamsburg, and has frequently been ranked one of the most romantic places on a college campus in the United States. According to the myth, if you cross the bridge with the person you love – and kiss at the end – you’ll stay together forever. With its close proximity to the colonial area, it’s an easy and romantic stroll with a “wow” finish to celebrate your special relationship on Valentine’s Day – or any day!
The Crim Dell is located directly behind the historic Christopher Wren building near the beautifully landscaped Sunken Garden. It’s the perfect spot for a Valentine’s Day picnic!
