Spring Break in Williamsburg, VA

I had a week off of school in April, so Z also took a couple days off and we took a little road trip!

We arrived just in time for lunch. Since Williamsburg is a college town (home of William and Mary) we stopped at Paul’s Deli which is like a college deli/diner.

After lunch we headed down to Colonial Williamsburg to check out the sites.

One of the highlights for me was seeing this baby calf!

We stopped at a candy shop and I picked up some sea salt caramels for me and some turtles for my mom (who watched Louis for us!). We sat in some rocking chairs on the campus of William and Mary where I enjoyed one of my treats!

After a few hours (and lots of miles) walking, we headed back to our hotel to rest before cleaning up for dinner.

We stopped at Dog Street Pub for a few drinks before our 8:45pm dinner reservation.

Our dinner reservations were just across the street from the pub so we were right on time!

I chose Fat Canary because I read such great reviews everywhere! The restaurant was super cute and we got a great private table with an awesome server (Hi Tink!).

We got a nice bottle of wine to share since we walked in to town!

For my entrée I got the scallops with smoked tomatoes! I haven’t eaten scallops since this dinner because they were SO PERFECT and nothing will measure up!

z ordered a fish special which was also awesome.

We even splurged and got espresso profiteroles for dessert!

A great meal and a great day in Williamsburg! Happy Spring Break to me!
